Roamware Debuts Two Numbers Per SIM Service

Article Comments  2  

Oct 13, 2010, 7:11 AM   by Eric M. Zeman   @phonescooper

A company called Roamware has announced the launch of a Temporary Number Service (TNS), which allows wireless network operators to temporarily provision an existing customer with a second, active number for their SIM card. TNS would let users who need two separate numbers access them from one device, rather than necessitating two devices or two SIM cards. In order to use the service, customers dial in a special code, select from several available temporary numbers, and then activate the service. Users can make/receive voice calls, as well as send/receive text messages from the temporary number. No information was provided about costs of the service, nor which network operators are allowing it.

Hasn't Nextel done that for years?

I don't get the significance of this announcement. If Nextel, with it's aging iDEN 2G technology has had dual-line phones as standard for well over a decade, what is so special and/or different about this offering?
Yep. This sounds EXACTLY like what Nextel has already offered for so long. Nothing to see here. Move along.
