2 SIM Cards for the same number

Does Virgin Mobile allow users to have 2 SIM Cards for 1 number so that they can have 1 SIM in a Mobile Phone & a 2nd SIM in some type of wearable tech such as a Smart Watch? So that users can make calls & send texts from either device.

I know EE offer this facility and as Virgin Mobile use EE as a carrier I hope the above facility.

Re: 2 SIM Cards for the same number

Hello

I am afraid that is not something that VM can do I am afraid, as far as a know with EE it is actually a 2nd number for the 2nd SIM card, no company can have physically 2 SIMs with the same number.

Although VM use  EE for the signal they are using SIMs supplied by another company branded for VM.

A lot of the Smart Watches don't have a physical SIM they have something called an E-Sim and again this is a service that VM don't have.

Re: 2 SIM Cards for the same number

Don't forget as EE are owned by Virgins biggest competitor BT, there not going to stay with them for long

Hi locutus, 

 

We do not allow 2 sim cards with one number as this is physically impossible. I think you are taking about an E-sim we do not do these. Chris
