    Current client wants to give me a work phone (iPhone) for work use. The other option is "bring your own phone" wherein you use your personal phone and plan and they install UEM client on it.

    (Been a while since I've dealt with Blackberry, so I assume UEM is the client software?)

    Anyway I am proposing a third option and that is they give me just a SIM instead of a whole phone. I'll install that as the second SIM in my Android phone (Xiaomi 9T).

    Will that work, and more important can I lock the UEM to the work-provided SIM? Not a requirement, but I'd like to provide some assurance if they have never tried this before.

    BlackBerry UEM, like other EMM solutions, provides a containerised area on your device that is controlled by the enterprise. It's like having two phones in one (own apps, contacts, calendars, etc) where you can't copy any info from one to the other.

    How they deal with two SIMs, I don't know.

    Bottom line, I'd talk a little with IT and find out what solution they are using and what "client" is being installed. They might can even tell you if it will work with a dual SIM phone and if so, does it require the primary account.

    With a BYOD work profile on standard Android enterprise, your Sim means nothing other than inventory data. They have no lockdown controls over your cellular phone or data usage. About only thing hey can do data wise is provision work wifi profiles and vpn connections

    Last I checked, would only report the primary sim and cellular number, but again, since that is device owner side of phone, they'd have little to no control over it.
    2nd sim would basically just give you a totally separate work phone number, but not data unless you set it as primary / active data
    Tested very quickly on an Asus dual sim device a year ago

    Using a dual-sim BlackBerry Keyone here and onboarded to my UEM using both a regular MDM profile and BlackBerry Dynamics. I can confirm what @Rodney Wilder and others said but I will paraphrase. The profiles, etc., that are pushed down to your phone and permit it to talk to the UEM infrastructure afterwards are tied to the platform (ie: the whole device) and not a particular phone number.
