Default Two SIMS - one number Orange ?

Morning all

Quick one - before I waste my time launching myself on Orange CS.

I have two phone - one I leave in the car and one I take with me. Is it
possible to have two phones with a sim mapping to the same number?

Potentially both may be switched on simultaneously.

TIA

Cheers

Alan

Only if you're on a business tariff I believe.

H'm that's interesting as although strictly speaking I am a personal
customer as I have three SIM's registered to my account Orange appear to
treat me as a business customer.

Might give them a bell.

Many thanks


Regards

Alan

Business customers can get to speak to a British human being (often) by
dialling 345 rather than 150.

Am I correct in saying two SIM cards with same number or do I have it
totally wrong?

No


Incorrect answer.

I'm "mobile" at the moment with only a GPRS connection for company so I
won't go trawling the Orange site for links, but "Single Number" is the
product you need.

As another poster has pointed out, there may be a requirement to be a
business customer.

Regards

Jon.

Orange - No, unless there has been a very recent announcement.

Vodafone offer this.

Wrong. Orange do offer this -- only to business customers.
