(Or maybe companies don't roll these out in the US? It is standard in Europe and China)
Sure apple doesn't but apple's just like what 16% of shipped phones worldwide?

So I still haven't found a real answer why someone would have 4 phones unless he plays multiple tables on mobile apps - I'm guessing this is the main reason

Don't know what they use all these phones for but I'm pretty sure you don't want your number to be found on any of them after the first one.

Oh yeah, I get that they're available - just far from standard. Especially on this side of the pond.

On the side they drive for both Uber and Lyft and it's easier to manage on separate phones.

Poker players are generally too lazy to have multiple phones for any legit productive purpose.

One phone for playing poker. Another phone for dealing pot.

Re: Why do some players have multiple phones?

Four is best.

One for the money and the free rides
Two for the lie that you denied
Three for the calls you've been making
Four for the times you've been faking

I rest my case

Maybe one for cryptocurrency transactions only, another one that no one knows for 2FA only, and another one that is a regular phone.

Or maybe they are multi-accounting PPPoker or other poker apps.

I have 2 phones so I can use one to call the other one and have it vibrate.

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.
No offense but these are pretty dumb reasons to haul around 3 phones. 1 phone could accomplish all of that, its 2018 you know. I suspect a real reason is people like to show off and pretend they are big time when they have multiple phones. Bunch of losers.
