    Hey everyone. I currently run two different offline businesses, and this is what's going on...

    I don't want to have a bunch of phones everywhere, and I want to carry only one phone.

    And what I'd like to do is remain professional by knowing who's calling me, so I can answer the phone accordingly... maybe through sending any callers through an automated system and it somehow advising me it is coming from entity 1 or 2? or even 3, 4, 5, 6, Etc...

    Is there such a solution?

    If anyone can help me with this, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Ah ok...

    But then, how do I differentiate which entity they are calling?

    And would that be the only solution to that? Is there some sort of internet service that could do that?

    It will tell you if the call is from 'Sim 1' or 'Sim 2', so you can easily differentiate on who is calling. Even several phones come with quad-sim.

    Regarding any internet service, never heard of.

    Well hey, that's a start! I do appreciate your help... I will look further into it...

    I'm curious to know if there's any other options as well? Can anyone chime in?

    If you post this in the Blackhat Lounge section, you will receive a better response.

    It's totally overkill, but, it will do what you want it to do. You can set it up so that when you get a call, it will 'whisper' the introduction, that is, play a short introduction like "call incoming for Bobs Beetle Bugs", then you answer as per normal.

    That said, I think a dual sim phone is the best solution - no ongoing cost!

    Virtual phone service, like Vumber. Get all the numbers you need and full tracking, and change them and point them whenever and wherever you want.

    You can always see the phone number the customer dialed to reach you if you set it that way.

    Like Tex Said,...get a voice forwarding service like VUMBER. I'm pretty sure there is an ANDROID ap, that will set a DISTINCT RING TONE for each different source. That should give you a heads up on who's calling...and what to say.
