Combine work and personal cell phone
T-mobile digits – two phones, one phone number
Good morning, spiceheads! If someone has firsthand experience with this, I thought they’d be on this thread. Since I was hired six years ago, I’ve been using my personal phone for job-related matters, and now I’m getting a phone from work! I’m considering a few choices and want to carefully weigh the benefits and drawbacks before making a decision. Choice A: Retain separate phone numbers for my current (iPhone SE) and work phone (Pixel XL), and bring two devices around every day. Option B: Get rid of my personal phone and port the number to my work phone, which I will use exclusively. It will save me about $70 a month! Option C: Leave personal phone at home while at work, forward incoming calls to work phone, and hold only two devices during off-hours. Since after-hours work is currently negligible and uncommon, and they already call me on my personal phone if there is an emergency, I’m leaning toward option B. Then there’s the issue of moving all of my contacts and music from iOS to Android, which should be easy. NOT AT ALL! Thanks to all for their efforts.
Digits: multiple numbers, one device | t-mobile
Even if I’m not referring to you directly, you know who I’m talking about. This is the individual who enters a business meeting with a stack of smartphones on the conference room table. I’ve recently joined the two-smartphone club, and because I’ve seen so many people struggling to do this dance properly, I felt it was time to lend a hand.
There are a variety of reasons why someone would feel compelled to bring two smartphones with them. Maybe you were in the middle of a two-year deal with your personal smartphone when your boss offered you a second one. Others tend to bring two phones to keep their personal and professional lives apart. Then there are those of us who have to bring two smartphones because our company’s IT protection policy makes it too difficult to get away with only one handset that we can use at work and at home. Whatever the case may be, you now have two smartphones in your hands. So, what’s next?
For several years, I resisted getting two phones and instead opted to use my personal iPhone for both home and work. But it all changed when my company’s IT protection protocols were updated. I just wasn’t able to reduce my personal device’s capabilities in order to keep my boss from buying a work phone for me. As a result, I took the risk. Since the whole point of getting a smartphone in the first place is convenience, I opposed this for a long time. All you might possibly need is within easy reach. But which of your two smartphones has the data you require? It can seem insignificant, but keeping track of two devices mentally consumes a small amount of cognitive load. Rather than putting your two smartphones to work for you, you have now become their servant. Instead of allowing your smartphones to confuse your day and dictate your habits, use the following tips to make the most of having two devices.

Our smartphones are now indispensable in both our personal and professional lives. Using one phone for multiple purposes in the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) period can be risky for businesses. Effective BYOD systems, on the other hand, will protect sensitive data and keep work and play apart.
If your employer requires you to use a work phone for personal purposes, there are two advantages: you save money and simplify your life. Using a personal phone for work is also a viable choice with the right equipment.
The first — and most basic — technique is to arrange your apps across several screens. You’ll know to remain on one screen for work and one for play if you switch personal app icons to a different screen from your business app icons.
These initiatives can help to separate work and personal life, but they do not resolve security concerns. To protect work data from personal apps and browsing activity, some companies use a mobile device management (MDM) solution with a protected workspace.
How to separate your business phone from your personal
The appeal of owning a smartphone has worn off, and there are now more than 2 billion of them on the market. However, our way of life has spawned a new phenomenon. Work and home life have been increasingly entwined in recent years. With work hours taking up the bulk of our day, it’s easy to imagine work-related problems spilling over into our “home” hours. If you are fully committed to your job or not, you can not understand the intrusive impact it has on your everyday life. People are attempting to combat this with a single simple solution: the possession of a second cell phone. We’ll go through the reasons these people give for having a second computer in this post.
The mere idea of owning two cell phones is a nightmare straight out of a horror tech show for some people. Before you dismiss the idea entirely, consider this: the majority of your work will pass through your computer in some way or another. When you get home and are ready to relax after a long day, the last thing you want is to receive an email that makes you feel totally different. This induces personal tension, which in turn affects those around you. When you have two phones, you can practically put the job away when you turn off the work phone, allowing you more leverage over your time. It also ensures that work and play are segregated and managed in a “sane” manner.
