    Re: Two phones, one number

    Thanks Roberts, that's what I was looking for. I don't have a private Verizon account yet, but I have 151 government phones I swap phones back and forth testing a phone here and there, or if I get to work and leave my phone since my desk phone forwards to my work cell after 3 rings.

    Thanks again!

    Re: Two phones, one number

    Greetings !

    A person in this fourm stated "

    If, like Gentleman said, you do have GSM, you can get two phones and switch the Sim's card from one to the other, and use either phone. But, only one phone can be used at a time, depending of course which phone has the Sim's card in it.

    Question:

    Can a person with a t-mobile phone which uses GSM, using 2 phones with the same card (if ir were cloned !) listen in on one phone while the other phone is in use !

    Be intresting to know for informational purposes only!

    Re: Two phones, one number

    I don't really know the answer to this one, but I can speculate. Hopefully someone will see your post and give better answers that actually know, what I have below is pure speculation.

    1) digital devices are, for the most part (the back door clause in case I'm wrong ) only able to connect to one single device. I've never tried to clone a SIM, nor do I know anyone that has, but I would think if you had two phones active on the duped SIM, you would find problems. If you had only one phone powered up at a time, it may very well work. CDMA phones like Verizon have the electronic serial number coded inside the phone, not on a chip like SIM, so I'm not 100% sure how the GSM works.

    2) if you had two dupilcated SIMs/phones, your provider may very well have software in place that will notice that there is a signal from the same phone number and it's seen connecting to two separate towers, or twice on the same tower, which would easily give away a cloned phone. I'd guess they would suspend the service and contact the owner of the phone number and tell them their account has been comprimised...

    Anyone with direct technical knowledge able to give a better answer? I'm interested in seeing the facts myself.

    again, this is all speculation, and 99.9% of my experience has been with CDMA.
