Handle9: If they want you to have a mobile they should either provide you with one or pay for yours via an expense claim.


The problem is that noone wants the hassle of carrying two phones with them, and some companies may be reluctant to fund a mobile phone by means of expense reimbursements due to a desire to get discounts by bundling their company mobile fleet onto a collective account.

I guess the only answer is for employees to stand firm and tell their employers that although lodging expense claims for their own personal mobile is likely to be more expensive than having a company mobile, they are simply unwilling to carry a separate company mobile if one is provided.

Thats one reason why manufacturers came up with dual-sim phones.  Unfortunately it still seems to be a "fringe" feature, rather than one available on the handsets we like to use.

I know someone who lost a great number this way because their work went broke and they were not able to transfer it back to a personal account.

Dont do it. Phones are small, carrying 2 is no big deal and it means you can accidentaly leave the work one at home and your friends can still get you.
