    Is it possible to activate a Nokia 5185i such that the Mobile Identification
    Number (MIN) is different from my phone number? I have to have my service
    activated this way because I have a number that was ported from a land line,
    so the mobile identification number is different in order to be on one of
    the cellular provider's prefixes so their system can be identified while
    roaming.

    When I go into the NAM programming menu, this phone only has one place for
    me to enter my phone number. The other models I have ask for the phone
    number twice, once as my number, the other time as my mobile identification
    number (MIN). I'm guessing this means this model won't work with my account,
    but I just thought I'd ask here if anybody knows of a work around.

    Thanks,

    Jeff
