    is it possible to have 2 phones on one line?

    i will be getting the thunderbolt when it comes out this month {i hope}. i currently have a d1. i work in construction and sawdust does a number on my phones. i really don't want ANY dust in my new thunderbolt. is there a way to keep my droid for when I'm on the job site and my thunderbolt when I'm anywhere else?

    when i got my d1 i picked it up at a verizon store. they activated it for me. i took it home and when i got an incoming call both my droid and my old phone rang. they both were running on one #. i called verizon and they were shocked. i was giving the phone to a friend so they had too shut the old one down. i remember them saying it was possible my old one was on when they activated the new one.

    so i know it CAN happen. but how too repeat it? any one else do this???

    No you cannot.

    I don't know if that was a fluke or maybe Verizon hadn't totally switched lines, so both worked for a period of time.
    I got a DX, and once I activated it...my D1 was inoperable.
    You may want to use the D1 for work...and then activate the DX during non work hours.
    Its not as easy as taking a SIM card out, but you go back and forth by just activating whichever phone you want to use.

    I have the same problem, and it would be really nice if you could just switch out sim cards, but of course it couldn't be that easy....

    Yes you could use google voice, save for text messages.

    You can tell what number you want to ring at what time and what days, etc.

    Guys...you can switch the device that gets service by calling verizon and going through the steps in about 5 minutes. Do it in the morning as u get to work, switch it back to the good device when u get in your truck to go home. I do this when I go out on the boat
