    So I ordered the 6 plus. Now on my other line I have an emergency phone which is samsung. There is the 5c 8 gb and 32 gb. I love working out and wanted to use that only for music when working out and as an emergency phone. The 8 gb I just have to pay a $36 activation fee. The 32 gb one I have to pay $50 and the $36 activation fee. The 5C I will be using the plus for everything. Right now my other phone is the epic 4g for a backup. THanks.

    Why not get a used iPod for the music and a flip phone as the emergency phone? Seems way more expensive to use a smartphone as an emergency phone.

    No, if I did have two iPhones I would sell one of them, or give it to a family member.

    I have a 6+ and a 5. The 5 is currently my gym phone I exercise with and will be my "temp" phone when I sell the 6+ next year to upgrade.

    6+ personal, 5S for work. Got a 4 and a 5 sitting in a drawer too, I can't be arsed with selling the old ones. As a result I kinda abuse my phones.

    The 5S feels like a toy compared to the 6+..

    No, it is far too expensive to have 2 iPhone's and there would be no point for me because they would both do the same thing and I couldn't use them at the same time anyway. One does the job nicely.

    Got a pair of 6's. One personal (AT&T) and one work (Verizon). I actually have a 5 too that is a "pay as you go" (T-Mobile) for back up and when inlaws visit (come from overseas and stay for 3-6 months) so they have a local phone.

    I ordered two phones, but one is for me and one is for my wife.

    I don't see a need for two phones, I can't recall a time where I was unable to my phone.

    Two iPhone 6s, one personal, one personally owned for work. Among other reasons, I need data/Internet access at the same time on Verizon and VoLTE isn't widely enough available.

    I had three, two blue 5c's, and a space gray 5s. Sold the 5s a while back. Last weekend I traded in one of my 5c's and iPad Mini and got the Mini 3. I had a 6 for about 24 hours but it was defective, so I returned it and likely won't replace it for a while yet.

    I was thinking about getting a 6 and swapping the sim from my 6+ depending on that day's activities. I'm still not sure if I wanna shell out another $700 after already spending $1015 on the 6+ but I'm very tempted.

    I have 2... a work owned/issued iPhone 4 and my personal iPhone 6 plus.

    I forward calls from my work phone and use it as little as possible. The battery will often last me 3+ days ;)

    I have a 5s space gray, a 4s white, a 3g white a 2g (superb). I also have a 5c from my company.
    I'd like to buy the 6 plus but it's really big, although I'm really interested in the bigger battery...:rolleyes:

    I have a Verizon 128GB iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. I use the 6 Plus with my AT&T post paid service and the regular 6 with my T-Mobile prepaid sim. Before the new iPhones come out next year I'll sell one of them before the announcement and use the other one temp.

    I have a 5C (work) and a 5 (personal).

    The '5 will be upgraded to an iPhone 6 next March when the contract on it is up.

    Also still got an old 3GS, still going strong but doesn't get much use.

    I've got one iPhone 5 which is really just a beater device now. I've also got an Xperia Z3 Compact and a Moto G.

    How do you forward the calls? I have 2 6's, one work and one personal and would love to not have to keep both in my pockets haha

    I believe it's up to your work phone carrier, it's suppose to be an option feature which cost additionally.

    I plan on keeping my 5S once I get my 6. My 5S is factory unlocked, so I'm keeping it for when I travel overseas. Plus, I'm sure I will sell my 6 prior to the 6S being released so I will go back to using my 5S until I picked up the 6S.
