sorry not possible,1 sim card 1number.

Just use you SIM card in the older phone, and switch the sim when you want to use the nice one.

@vincep Get a number from fongo.com then a second SIM card for the old phone. Forward your preferred numbet to fongo and answer it from the old phone. See:  100% SERVICE

Technically, not impossible, but...

 

Public doesn't have any time of "share" plans or any type of offering that allows customers to have one number but 2 unique/different sim cards (think of one for a phone, but another for a smartwatch, etc.).

 

When I say technically not impossible, because Public Mobile doesn't allow 2 different sims to be active on the same account/same phone number,  the way to do it would be to clone your sim card.  Saying that, don't do this. I am not sure about the legality of cloning your sim card, but if you did and both happened to connect to the network at the same time, even for a split second, your service is going to get cancelled.  Carriers would see this as someone stealing service and/or trying to pretend to be you.

 

So sorry, but if you want to going back and forth between different devices, you'll need to either pay for 2 plans or you'll have to keep moving your sim card from one device to the other.

Another two SIM idea.

 

Get a sim for both your devices, and activate a plan on each.  Setup a VoIP.ms account for setting up your own calling Centre telephone receptionist, and use the service to send the call to both phones.

 

Ive not done it, but it is doable.
