BlackBerry Now Lets You Use 9 Phone Numbers In A Single SIM Card


Forget dual-SIM phones, as now you can use as many as 9 numbers in a single card. Wonder how? Well, one of the leading phone maker BlackBerry is coming out with a concept of using 9 phone numbers in a single SIM card. The company is planning to implement this by the end of this year.

BlackBerry is in talks with telecom operators and regulatory authorities in India over its thorough implementation. “We are seeking clearance from regulatory authorities. We are also conducting pilots for the solution with operators here. We hope to launch the virtual SIM solution by end of the year,” BlackBerry India Managing Director Sunil Lalvani told media in the press conference.

He further said “The technology allows an individual to have both, a personal and business number on a single mobile device, with separate billing for voice, data and messaging usage on each number. People can switch between business and personal profiles easily without carrying multiple devices or SIM cards,”

However, the company dint furnish any details on the list of their partners. The solution has already been implemented in parts of Africa and the company is looking to expand it across Europe and Asian countries, and with India being the third biggest market in the world, the focus on the Indian market seems to be more.
