    I mean the only thing that comes to mind is ESN cloning, which is basically changing the ESN of a network device (phone, modem, MiFi) to match that of another network device, usually an active one. Then through some quirky screwing around, one can get two, perhaps even more phones/modems on the Verizon (any network really, but I think it only works with CDMA, GSM networks don't use ESNs for identification on their networks, SIM cards do that!) network at the same time.

    It comes up in forums where people ask if there is a way for them to have two phones on one line, so that when one gets a call, so does the other.

    That'll do it, though. Smartphones, Android in particular, are byfar more advanced that simple modems and MiFi devices, which, other than the LTE radio and energy management (allowing for a battery), pretty much stick with technology that is something like 10 years old- simple display (if any), on/off button for on/offing (lol), MiFis are about as advanced as my home wireless router. But now I'm rambling lol....

    EDIT: Ever get that Droid X? lol
