I would love to see a mobile provider having a simultaneous ringing. So I can get another phone, one for work and one for personal and make it ring on both phones at the same time (same number on both sim cards)....then I could leave my good phone at home when I am working, and not worry about breaking a cheap work phone. I know I could swap sim cards all the time.. but when you have a good case.. it is kind of a hassle.
What would be even better is if I can program that kind of thing in self serve.

For that you would need to clone a SIM card prnhave two SIM cards on the same account. Technically speaking I don't think it is possible. What you could do is have 2 phones and switch the SIM card before leaving for work!

What you essentially want is two phone lines at the same time for the price of one. Quite frankly switching sim cards is the easiest, best option.

You can keep two sim cards, one in each phone and then keep switching sim cards on self-serve. This way you don't have to worry about your cases. It takes me a minute to do whenever I need to. You should definetly try that

Yup.. just two sim cards that have the same number and simultaneous ring when they are on.

I will look into it. Thanks.
The reason why I thought it was possible is because I have VoIP.ms and it has everything you can think of, all inclusive in the small price, including simultaneous ringing. It even works when one device is shut off (by not going directly to voice mail) when it is shut off.

Secondary telecommunications providers such as voip.ms, and Rogers and Shaw are permitted to provide services the incumbent telcos are prohibited from providing. This was meant to allow them to provide value added services to compete with the incumbents.

Make best use of your voip.ms service to meet your goals.

Give out your voip number as your main contact and simul-ring the cell phone(s).

You already have the best solution to your problem.

Does it cost much for a second cell on my plan? Or is it inclusive?

Costs the same as the first cell. Two phones, twice the cost (more or less).
