    Hello!

    So I'm a tech enthusiast, specifically with phones. Been on the mobile nations forums for years now. And quite honestly, I've never had two phones because I personally don't think I have enough going on in life to warrant it, but I really would like a second option. Does anyone else have a second phone? I was thinking of getting a Blackberry Keyone because of the keyboard

    Yep, I have a Moto E4 just to play with Android activated on Verizon prepay. The bad thing about the Verizon E4 is the bootloader is locked and it can't be rooted. It's still a fun phone to play with and keep up on Android.

    The phone was cheap $69 bucks at Walmart and I'm impressed with the speed and quality of the E4.

    I have a basic prepaid flip phone with Tracfone. It’s only in case something happens to my iPhone.
    I don’t have a land line which is the only reason for a second phone, for emergencies.

    My daily driver is the X and I use the 8 Plus alongside it.

    I almost always have a current iPhone and a current Android phone. For me it's more about just loving tech, and like to keep up to date with both OSes. That being said, the only phones I currently have are my iPhone X and a Nextbit Robin as a backup. I've been trying to decide which Android phone I want to get this year. I'm leaning toward the Sony Xperia XZ2.

    I don't! I personally just don't see the need, but I do "get" that others here really embrace the technology, and for them, that's awesome. I respect them, and it's nice hearing their opinions.

    I have 2 phones, which one is meant to be a backup but I do switch between the two when I feel like it.

    Although I currently have two iPhone models (iPhone X and iPhone 8), I only use one of them. The other is in its box. I purchased the iPhone X after having had the iPhone 8 since launch day and I had every intention of returning it within the two-week return period. Well, I made the decision to keep it and then told myself that I would switch back and forth between the two....yeah, right!....That didn't last long at all. It's been all iPhone X for quite some time now. With that being said, if you don't have a need for two devices then don't bother getting two.

    No. Unless I am given a work phone I (speaking for myself and no one else) see no need for a second phone.

    However, I have 6 sewing machines.

    I have a 6s and a SE as my second phone. It is convenient to have 2 phones for me, especially when both are attached to the same iCloud account.

    Why ? why would you need two phones ? are we to assume that you who do,carry both of them ? I,like most people have old phones that still work, as potential back up in the event of damage or loss but don’t cart them about ! Gadget freakery I can sort of understand.

    Some people have a separate work/business phone from their personal phone. There are many professions that require people to have more than 1 phone. In my case I rarely carry 2 at the same time. I do it because I like to try different devices and OSes.

    I do an iPhone X & a Nexus 6p. Most likely to get a Pixel 3xl later this year. Google should have this whole cellphone thing figured out by the third rendition.

    My personal device is an iPhone X but I did activate a line with Cricket and use a Moto G5 Plus for that line. The Cricket line is now my work phone which I got because my iPhone is on T-Mobile and there are some places I work that T-Mobile gets little to no coverage but AT&T still works great at.

    I have two phones not by choice though! I have my personal which is my OG Pixel. My work phone is an iPhone 6s. I hate carrying two phones, too much to keep up with!

    I have the X as my main line but I have an old Tracfone sim that still triples the card you buy so I set it up on my jailbroke 6s. I use that line when I need to get away. Only my family have that #. It’s nice on dates with my wife to have a phone that only 3 people have the number to.

    I only use my iPhone X and my iPad Pro 10.5. That's enough for me. I did let my daughter borrow my iPad so I'm thinking about getting a cheap MacBook.

    Technically, yes.

    Several years my company rolled out the BYOD program and wanted us to install "work" apps on our personal devices. I refused as this is my PERSONAL device, and unless I'm getting any reimbursement for it, no "work" apps will be installed. So they got me a (pos) Samsung Galaxy S4. However, it stays in my office. I never take it home.
