Question about running multiple phones

Whats up fam! I have the TP on the sprint network and I was wondering if its possible to have more than 1 phone active under the same phone number. My job requires that we can not have camera phones but I need my phone during the work hours so I have an older sprint phone w/out a camera I can take but I didn't want to add a seperate number number to my account. Is this possible? I've searched the forum with no luck so far. Thanks.

Re: Question about running multiple phones

Inconvenient yes...but the ESN swap is your only option. Either that or switch to a family plan and put two lines on it, deal with call forwarding or missed calls, and two numbers...yuck. "More than 1 phone active under the same phone number" is the very definition of cloning, which of course is not legal.

ESN swaps are actually pretty fast, though; on another board someone did pretty much the same thing and I guess just learned to add a few minutes to each side of his day.

Or...you could switch to GSM and swap SIM cards, which is great except every time I take the back cover off my TP I'm afraid the dang thing is going to fly into two pieces in my hands. And that assumes you can live with AT&T or TMobile coverage and aren't 6 days into a 2 year contract with Sprint.
