Hello,

Is it possible to have two sim cards configured with the same phone number?

Thanks,

No! not possible, only 1 SIM can be activated for one number or (two SIMs for 2 numbers)

I'm assuming you switch phones often. To alleviate this issue, you can switch between SIMs on your account as often as you'd like, as long as a SIM has been active on the network at least once in 90 days. I'm pretty sure it's 90 days anyway.

Nicolas, if you are like me and switch phones often, I run into the problem where one phone is a regular size sim, and one is a micro sim. I got a hold of a sim cutter, and cut out the sim card to make the micro sim, but I kept the rest of the plastic, and it makes a perfect adapter for micro to regular sim.

I hear this is dangerous and can mess up your SIM card tray if you're not careful.
