I have a bunch of 2811's in my MPLS network.  At one site where I have 3 bonded T1's I have a 2821.  At the site where I have one T1 currently I have a brand new 1841.  I'd like to add another T1 to that site for a total of 2.  When I got my quote from Sprint they wanted me to get a 2901 router.  Why?  
It's just a data T1, no break out of voice on those.

Does anyone know the exact differences and maybe their logic behind this?

The 1841 supports two WIC Cards as you can see in the below datasheet

do you already have both of the WIC slots used ?
if not, you can buy a second wic card and use it
The 2900 series is the replacement for 2800 series
