No to phones from me
Why go for two phones, if you can have 10 in one. I don't mean a android phone but maybe it's also possible that one. But I personally would not choose them android phone, because android phones got too much issues like insufficient storage available. I would go for a Windows phone because you can have everything you wish for like Skype in combination with all kinds of social communications like Facebook with camera. Especially nice development is the new feature which is groundbreaking in my eyes, I mean then that you know Nokia Lumia with 22 to 40 megapixel camera which makes the android camera zoom FX APK app like a cheap toy.

Re: Personal/work combos
I still have my personal mobile and a work mobile. I keep the two separate--for cost reasons when traveling overseas especially--and also for sanity's sake. I can leave the blackberry at home when doing family stuff.

Re: Personal/work combos
That's true.  Every individual must balance privacy concerns and risk with the cost and convience of having their own personal line.  Given that Google has infiltrated our personal lives so much, I'm sure many have already thrown in the towel.

Re: Personal/work combos
That would solve the need for having two devices, pzernik, but it doesn't necessarily address who owns the phone's data, right? If you have work email, contacts, enterprise apps on your device, does that all belong to the company? Can they potentially request to see your texts or contacts if you quit?

Re: Personal/work combos
I think a phone with two numbers can be solved with google voice - not a special phone model - yet another mis-step by RIM.   As long as the email is secure (we use Good Client), one phone is all I need.

Re: Personal/work combos
Ahh, yes, thanks, seven. That makes sense. Who owns the data is a really big deal, especially in sales.

Re: Personal/work combos
Sales people want to use their device to call their contacts at their customers.  And basically only use the company phone to call internally.

That way when they leave they take their customer info with them.

Re: Personal/work combos
That is a good question, Liz. I imagine it comes down to individual company policies. If your company bought the phone, they get it back, but if you bought it, then the enterprise side just gets wiped, and it goes back to being a personal-only device. Since it's just software, I imagine that's pretty easy to do with the right policies in place.

Re: Personal/work combos
I think that it is not just sales people who carry 2 phones...I know an engineering manager who does just so that work can't see what he and his wife are communicating.  He carries both all around the world!  Now men usually have both pockets and belts with which to carry multiple instances of the same devices...women, well we usually have neither and must resort to either hands or purses, both of which are inconvenient at best.  I vote for split personality phones...although in the case of somebody being fired, I wonder who gets the phone and the personal info???

Re: Personal/work combos
So do drug dealers and cheating boyfriends...

Do you think split-smartphone software like AT&T's Toggle or BlackBerry Balance could do the trick for sales people, or does the nature of their work really make two (three!) phones neccessary? I've only ever sold Girl Scout cookies, and not well, so I really don't know.
