I have 2 phones, and I want to use both under the same number, is it possible to have 48 send me another sim and use both the phones ?

or will they deactivate the old sim ?

 

Thanks.

As far as i know this is technically possible (e.g. see here: http://support.en.belgacom.be/app/answers/detail/a_id/11778/~/two-sim-cards-for-the-same-phone-numbe...) but I don't think that many carriers support it and I very much doubt that 48 do. Log a support query to ask support about it though just to be sure:

You can order and activate as many 48 SIMs as you want.

 

https://community.48.ie/t5/The-Knowledgebase/Getting-Started-Order-Your-FREE-48-SIM/ta-p/53098

 

But you cannot have two SIMs that operate on the same number.

Each SIM will have its own separate number.

And each SIM will be linked to a separate account/email address and use a separate membership, add-ons, cash credit etc.

 

Hope this helps.
