Re: Why do some players have multiple phones?

Johnny Vibes told Joey Ingram that he spent 20 hours a day on his phone for one day in question. Man those phones are toxic. I try to use mine as little as possible.

Oh, it seems I figured it out. That would expose him and make it quite difficult to carry a boatload of prepared food without dropping it on a table of customers.

Re: Why do some players have multiple phones?

If you use a phone number for 2FA it should be a number that no-one knows. It's easy to "steal" a number by porting it.

Could be an extra phone for poker sites/crypto 2FA.

Re: Why do some players have multiple phones?

If it's Poker pros w multiple phones I would guess that at least 1 is for personal use and at least 1 is for playing OFC and/or an app. Not saying it's impossible that they would have phones for other reasons as well, but if you know how prevalent these poker apps/mobile clients are, you prob wouldn't be wondering.

I'm too lazy to put all of the apps + all of the info from the previous phone on to the new one, so I just carry 2 around. One for the normal use, and the second for the info or in the case that the battery dies on the main one. I also have multiple Facebook/ Pokemon Go/ E-mail accounts, and having multiple phones helps with this, especially when I intend to use 2 accounts at once.
The 3rd iphone I use more or less just for music/movies. It's like an ipad.
what a nightmare

Re: Why do some players have multiple phones?

The number of phones is probably correlated with how many people the player owes money to.

Re: Why do some players have multiple phones?

Judging by reading this thread, it is not widely known that you can get mobile phones with 2 (theoretically more) SIM cards.

I use two sim cards for fairly mundane purposes (the Isle of Man has its own mobile phone network, so I can maintain my UK number when visiting there more easily for cheaper data etc) but many of the use cases described in this thread would benefit from using one phone and two SIM cards.

If the above doesn’t work, the title is: “Back up your iOS device with iCloud”

Then download/restore from backup when you are setting up you new iphone

iCloud back up is ready at hand on the device and a no brainer. I did point out "all" in my first post, but anyway:

iCloud back up=only important data back up
Computer/itunes back up=full back up

Maybe years ago the above was correct, but for both the iPhone 6s and iPhone X that I bought, I fully restored (set up the new phones) from iCloud. Only apps that didn’t download properly were the ones that had not been updated for the new phone at the time.

Everything else was on it in full, up to date apps, photos, iMessages, WhatsApp messages, etc

In the eyes of Apple, you are the optimal customer.

I'm not even going to bother asking you to justify this.

If by "pretty standard" you mean not found on the world's top-selling phones, then yeah, I guess it's pretty standard.
