    My new job is giving me either an iPhone 5s or blackberry z10 for work calls. I don't want to give up my personal line for obvious reasons so with my new Note 3 how can I carry both and be comfortable? I am required to be on call 24-7. No personal phones are allowed. Also email on work phone a must only.

    Thanks guys

    I don't know about 2, but I used to sell for 5 carriers, and carried one phone on each carrier on my belt. Nothing the size of a Note 3, tough. That's all I carry now, and it goes into my shirt pocket.

    The iPhone 5s is the smaller of the 2 choices and can easily fit in a pocket. Get a belt Holster for your Note 3 and you'l be golden. Unless of course you are already used to carrying it around naked In which case you can carry the Note in another pocket.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Get the iPhone 5s. Tape it to the back of the Note 3 with double sided tape. Now it's just like having an extended battery for your Note 3.

    For added points put some modeling clay on to taper the sides down.

    I have a BB 9900 for work. It is nothing more than a tool so I throw it in my bag and I have it "handy" but my Note 3 is on me at all times. That's how it goes.

    For work I have an iPhone5. Small enough to fit in my pants pocket. Galaxy Note 3 not so much but fits in jacket pocket without feeling too much bulk. I don't get a lot of phone calls on either. If I'm on call I'll forward calls to one or the other.

    My homeboy that works in I.T. carries the Note 3 and another phone (iphone) and has no problem pocketing both. I think he has a holster for the iPhone and pockets the Note 3.

    I would forward calls but I need to get my work emails too to keep track of work warnings/messages on the servers.

    Guilty. I'm a responder for disaster with the American Red Cross. On the weeks that I'm on, I have to carry another phone in case the Emergency Operations Center calls it. Thankfully, because it's only used for voice calls and occasional texts, its a small phone. I went to Target and purchased a camera pouch for my belt along with a small notepad and a mini pen. When the calls come, I have to write info and they expect me to be ready. LOL.

    Lucky for me my work phone is a Casio Gzone Ravine which is a flip phone. The N3 is on my hip in the otterbox and the flip phone is in my pocket. I use an LG stereo bluetooth headset so I only take the ravine out of my pocket when I'm dialing someone. Like mentioned above the work phone is a tool. I have no problem carrying it in a pocket with keys or my knife.

    I've just got back from a journey through six countries and I took another phone with locally bought SIM(s) through three of them. Roaming charges are still ridiculous. I used to run two phones when I was regularly in one particular other country.

    Nope Security at work will not allow anything on personal phones. They use the GOOD APP for emails and all work related stuff.

    I've carried two smartphones for years. Currently my Nexus 5 is my primary personal phone. For work my Note 3 is just stellar, it's so good I don't let the size impact me one bit. These are the finest phones I've had, and I've had nearly every current make and model of Android phone. What an improvement from the G-1 days.

    In the past year I had to carry two phones. One for job and a personal one. I tried to find a dual smartphone both sim active. It seems there is not available right now.

    I think you can adapt a SmartPhone to take two SIMs?

    I do, but not because I have to. :-D My Note 2 is my regular phone, but I also sometimes carry this AT&T Nokia 520 I got off Amazon for $40 new. I mostly carry it for it's better offline GPS.
