toggling usage between 2 phones - both have a rogers sim with the same phone number

Greetings

 

Is it possible to toggle usage between 2 phones both of which have a rogers sim with the same phone number? One is a unlocked iphone4 and the other an unlocked iphone6 - only one be would used at a time with the 416 area code number.

 

The use case is I have a unlocked iphone6 - when I go to the states I use a tmobile 3 buck daily plan with their sim card - so I just remove the rogers sim and insert the tmobile sim. the problem is if anyone called my normal 416 number I would not know - so I was thinking I would just power up an old iphone4 that has it's original rogers sim and same 416 number (which hasn't been used in in a very long time) that way I would know if anyone called.  Would doing that have any sort of negative impact regarding sim associations or anything else I would need to be aware of. 

 

If the iphone4 had a nano sim it would be a no brainer - just swap the sim temporarily - but it doesn't so 2 different sims are needed

 

Most people will know my US number when I am away so shouldn't be a major problem- but still nice to see any missed calls in case someone doesn't have that number

 

Thanks

Dean

Sorry but they only allow 1 sim card per phone number so when you got the new namo sim the micro sim is disabled.

Thanks for your response - I may just keep my old iphone 5 to accomplish this - but was hoping to use a much older phone for that task.
