One cellphone, or two?

As much as I love my customers, sometimes I just want to be unreachable … like after hours, or weekends away. At the same time, I want to make sure my close friends and family can keep in touch with me.

So the question is: One cellphone, or two?

Option 1: keep my existing phone but ignore the calls I don’t want to take. The downside is that the phone is always ringing, bleeping or blurping with SMS, Whatsapp, emails and calls. Also, some clients don’t like to have their calls constantly diverted to voicemail.

Option 2: Get a second phone, give this number only to close friends and family. It does mean that during a “normal” day I have to carry two phones around with me.

What would you do?

    On a recent trip to China a friend bought a phone that takes 2 sim cards. Not a mainstream brand name like Nokia or Samsung. Works brilliantly for exactly these reasons. Not sure about email and other apps tho’.

    I carry 2 phones, close friends and family know to try my second number when they can’t get me on 1st. Also helps for 2nd phone not to be a smart phone.
