  • Hi Ronald,

     Thanks for reaching out. Your Ting number can only be active on one phone at a time I'm afraid. There's no way around this. The closest thing you could do is if you are on GSM you could move the SIM card (which holds the number) from one phone to the next if they both take same size SIM when you want to use each phone. Other than the only option is getting a second number for the other phone if you wanted to use both.

  • If you want to have both phones ring from the same number sign up for a free googlevoice number and install hangouts and hangouts dialer. Then add your 2 cell phone numbers in the "forward calls to" settings. When someone calls the googlevoice number both phones will ring, Whichever picks up first gets the call. Although you can answer calls with the hangouts app but it uses data, having the calls forwarded uses free unlimited call minutes and also can have better call quality. Turn off the cell phone voicemail (or set it to answer after 8 rings) so all missed calls go to googlevoice's voicemail otherwise they get randomly answered by either of the cell phone voicemails. You can also use googlevoice on your computer, tablet or an OBi200.
