    Is this possible? I want to keep my current cell number but want my house number to go to the same phone. I have Sprint. My contract is about 5 months from running out so I'll be buying a new phone.

    It's not possible on any cell phone, BUT you could use call-forwarding on your home phone. Alot of VoIP company's will do that for free.

    Nextel's business communications can connect you with a forwarding system that dedicates your secondary number to your primary cellular phone.

    There are a lot of phones that are capable of dual MTNs... I have yet to run into a provider that will let you use them both consecutively though.

    On another note... check with your landline company about Call Forwarding. That way when someone calls you it will ring ahead to the cell.

    Your not actually having a phone with two numbers then, just a phone with one number and another number with an expensive call forwarding bill. Any carrier can do that.

    You can't. Nextel does not allow this.
