Default two line blackberry

Please Login to Remove!

I used to have a nextel cell phone with 2 phone lines. Is there a blackberry that can have two phone lines? If there isn't one, does anyone know if there may be one in the future?

If you could get skype on your blackberry. Then you could have your cell line and your skype line.

yea.... but if you think about it.... skype is cheaper than a monthly plan from a cellular carrier. skype would use data... so all people would need to do is pay for a data plan only... i dont think that carriers would like that too much.
