AT&T Blackberry Torch - Two Phone Numbers?

Hi All,

This may be an odd question.  Our company's cell phone account is being taken over by AT&T in the near future.

When we make the switch, one of our users plans to get a Blackberry Torch, and he asked me if there's a way to have two phone numbers on it (company and personal).

My guess is that it might be possible, but that only one number could be active at any given time.  I'd call AT&T to make sure, but we don't have an account with them yet, so I'm a bit reluctant.

That being the case, I figured EE would be a better place to start.

Thanks in advance!!

As I said:
Then by changing chips you have two numbers on the same phone.
(use company chip during company hours, then switch to personal chip after work or during work hours when you need to make/ receive personal calls) But not at the same time.
All phones using the same chip type are interchangable....any chip in any phone and vise versa (the chip "only" is personalised to the chips owner)
There are many call forwarding services, but I presumed you want call out and not have your company pay for the call and also to keep your call data "private" during non company use ( but use only one Blackberry phone) .

Hope this helps

One smart chip one number.
So if you have two chips (company and personal).
Then by changing chips you have two numbers on the same phone.

Torch is not a dual sim phone (Its real easy to achieve on a dual sim phone)... You can make use of Google voice to have another number linked to your present number.

you can always forward line A into line B, thus it will ring when either number is dialed

t3ch and DaBagBoy, thank you for the suggestions; they're both good ideas.

However, I think I'll be recommending Michael-Best's idea to the employee in question.  It's the simplest from a management standpoint.

Thanks!
