Using two BB with the same Blackberry Account.

I currently have a BB 9900 and am considering obtaining a BBZ10. The 9900 has a standard sim whereby the Z10 I believe a micro sim. (I have yet to speak to my service provider re a 2 sim plan) 

 

Is it possible to use both phones at the same time, if my provider permits, with regards to BB services etc by using the same account etc?

 

I thought I would approach this topic first prior to contacting my service provider.

 

Thank you.

 

Regards.

Re: Using two BB with the same Blackberry Account.

Are you asking about with the same BBID on both devices?

Yes, to a certain extent, on data.

Email, and social accounts such as Facebook and Twitter will work fine.

BlackBerry Messenger will only use one BBID on one device at a time.. if you have the same BBID on both devices, you will have to choose which one will have your BBM active.

 

Of course, the main question to this is if your mobile provider will allow two SIM cards with the same account. Doubtful.

Re: Using two BB with the same Blackberry Account.

Thank you for your prompt reply. The answer would appear to be yes with the exception of BBM. The latter is not greatly necessary as most of my friends have migrated to iphones and android. I didn't want my service provider to agree then find I wouldn't have any BB facilities. I'll speak to my provider and see what response I receive. Thank you. Regards.

Re: Using two BB with the same Blackberry Account.

Good luck with your mobile provider issue.

They may make it work, I am not sure since each SIM card has unique identifiers to indicate a SIM card provisioned with your correct plan, I am not hopeful they will allow such.
