Heck, StarTac(Tek?) was making two line phones 10 years ago, Korea and India are enjoying some two line CDMA phones, some using R-Uim and some just normal with switching enabled Numeric Assignments. I would love to have one phone with two numbers (home and work)! C'mon Sprint unlock and unbrand your phones so we can get with the times and have some cool stuff!
In addition to Nextel iDEN phones having two-line capability, the billing system is designed to be set up so that Nextel will send the bill for the work line to your employer's address and the bill for your personal line to your house.
Two lines in one phone, with separate billing - you can't beat that.
OMG What an indescribeable nightmare putting two lines on my Nextel Phone.(i335). I will spare you the gory details but it was the worst CS relation I have had to date. And it is NOT over. I have the two lines but, they are trying to convince me now that I may not call out from the second line. That the phones are not designed to do it..... BS BS BS BS BS BS BS. Tell that to the i1000 I had back in 1998 and the i90c I had in 2002. I have talked to so many CS reps including escalations and tier 2 tech support. Even the guy who got the two lines (incoming -one out) doesn't know what the hell he's doing. He is the one being told by others that it only receives and doesn't make calls on line two. Furthermore, I can't use a shared plan for some odd reason but, hey he said he will look into it we will see....
