How to Get a Dual SIM Card for the Same Numberthumbnail
You can create a second SIM card with the same number from an older SIM card.
There are two types of SIM cards in use today: V-1, or pre-2001 SIM cards, and V-2, or post-2001 SIM 
cards. You can use a SIM-card duplicator to make a copy of a V-1 SIM card and have two phones that have the same SIM card and phone number. However, it is not possible to clone or copy V-2 model SIM cards because companies have incorporated anti-cloning and anti-tampering features that will prevent a copy from working. So as long as your current SIM card was purchased before 2001, you can have a dual SIM card for the same number.



things you'll need:

  • SIM Card to be Copied
  • SIM Card Duplicator
  • Blank SIM Card

      Locate the International Mobile Subscriber Identifier (IMSI) number on the SIM card. The IMSI provides a unique identifier to each phone on the network. In the United States, it's a 15-digit number. Write down the number for your reference.

      Insert each SIM card into a separate phone. Note that, depending on your network, you may need to turn one phone off in order to use the other one.
