Hi ... I'm curious if I could use 2 phones with the same account ? What I mean is I would just being using one at a time but be able to switch phones when needed . Like for instance I plan on going up north for the weekend but I don't want to use my original cell phone , in case I might lose it . I would like to be able to use a different cell phone with the same account and if by chance I lose it , it wouldn't matter much . I would just call to deactived and then later just use my original cell again . Can this be done ?

Create an adapter. Make sure everything lines up.

One way to do this would be to swap a SIM card between two phones. Other than that, as far as I know, each phone has to have a unique phone number - you can't have two SIM cards with the same number.

Thats the problem , one phone has the mini SIM card and the other has the normal size one , So I'm guessing it can't work unless like you say if both cell accept the same size SIM card

You could get a case with a string on it, just like you might do for children's mittens........
