Why use a dual sim phone?

As we put more and more information into our phone, it becomes difficult to separate our work from our private information.

When we move jobs, quite often we have to hand back our company issued phone and SIM card. If we were using this as our personal phone then we could potentially lose our data, our contacts, and our phone number.

By using a dual sim phone, you are able to put the work sim in one slot and your personal sim in the other. You are able to allocate your contacts to ring out on the appropriate sim, whether a business or a personal call. When calls come in the name of the person comes up (if they are in your contacts), and the SIM that they have dialled in on.

Calls can come in simultaneously on each SIM and if your carrier supports call waiting then a possible four simultaneous calls could occur.

Of course it is also important to keep your texts and data separate, with each of these functions being configured under settings.

CheapIntlCalls provides the solution with their dual SIM / dual standby mobile phones.

The phones offered by CheapIntlCalls are fully featured smart phones running the latest Android operating system. More can be found here


What can a virtual disposable number do?

  1. Do you give your phone number out to competitions?
  2. Do you use your phone number as a contact point for your loyalty programs?
  3. Do you give out your phone number on Craigslist or eBay?

If so you may be at risk of identity theft and should look at the protection of a virtual disposable number.

You may not realise how much information is given away with your phone number. Quite quickly you appear on lists for telemarketers, your identity profile is started to be constructed and control is suddenly lost.

A simple reverse lookup will tell anybody the name and registered address of the owner of the phone. Couple this with same basic searches on Facebook and Linkedin and you can start to build a very quick profile of the person.

We need our phone to interact with in everyday life whether that is texting or for making calls, but should we be so blasé with our phone number.

Technology of course has a solution. In this case it is a virtual phone number.

How does a virtual phone number work, in simple terms it is a number that forwards to a designated number. This has been happening for years with 1800 and 1888 numbers and now because of technology is available to you.
