Does FQTV and FQTS still exist?

I'm specifically referring to the ability to input two FF numbers (one for status, another for crediting miles). The last post I see referring to this is back in 2011, premerger, where some people said that it was still possible to do this, while some people said it wasn't.

Phone agents have told me twice it's not possible, though I did manage to change my frequent flier number at the gate on a recent flight and still retain (most of) my benefits.

It's finally time I jump off the United bandwagon.

I do this all the time with SQ; FQTV = UA and FQTS = SQ, which is how I got 1K and PPS.

What's the benefit of doing in w/ UA? Would they give Global Services just on spend even if you earned your miles elsewhere?
