Sideline – 2nd Phone Number Description:
A free second number that works just like your first.
Sideline™ is the free 2nd number for your smartphone. It uses your existing carrier network and minutes so your 2nd number works anywhere your cell phone does. Since Sideline provides carrier reliability, it’s the go-to phone solution for small businesses, entrepreneurs, freelancers, or anyone who needs a 2nd phone line for privacy. You can finally stop using your cell number for work and keep your personal number private.
GET A NUMBER IN YOUR AREA CODE
Select a local area code and get a number that works wherever you do. You get to talk and text from a 2nd phone line—and because it’s a real number, you can call or text anyone.
OR TRANSFER IN AN EXISTING LINE
If you already have a work number on another landline or 2nd device, number porting lets you transfer that number onto Sideline.
SIDELINE FOR TEAMS
Our online dashboard lets companies remotely manage, assign and reclaim employee phone numbers—all on the smartphones they already have (and know how to use). Learn more at www.Sideline.com/teams
Unlike most calling apps that use Wi-Fi, Sideline works with your regular cellular network to give you the same great quality and reliability you get from your personal number. This also lets you share your calling minutes (which are probably unlimited) between two numbers. Compared to “cloud-based,” “virtual,” or “VoIP” phone systems, Sideline uses a minimal amount of data for general functionality.
CALLING & TEXTING
Your second number is just like your first. Separate caller IDs, notifications, and ringtones make it clear who’s contacting you. For outbound communication, just open Sideline. With your free phone number, you get unlimited texting and Sideline calling uses the carrier plan you already have. *Support for Hawaii and Alaska coming soon.
KEEP YOUR PERSONAL NUMBER PRIVATE
You shouldn’t give your personal number to everyone—that’s why there’s Sideline. But it’s not just a 2nd line for work. It can be your temporary number. Your anonymous number. Your business number. Your disposable number. Your fake phone number. It’s whatever you need it to be to protect your primary cell number.
On nights, weekends, or holidays, you can always silence your Sideline and send callers directly to voicemail. You can even set up multiple voicemails or auto-text replies to customize your greeting for any circumstance.
SIDELINE SUBSCRIPTION: $2.99/ month
We think everyone should have a 2nd phone number, so we give Sideline away for free by showing ads from time to time. If you don’t want to see them, you can upgrade your account at any time.
Sideline subscriptions are automatically billed monthly to your Google Play Account and auto-renew. You can turn off auto-renew in your account settings. If you don’t want to pay for Sideline, you can simply continue using it for free.
ABOUT DATA & INTERNET USAGE:
Even though Sideline uses your carrier network for calling, data and Internet connectivity are still required for general functionality. “Using your carrier network” instead of VoIP simply makes your call quality more reliable. We understand that phrase may imply Sideline doesn’t use any data or Internet. Unfortunately most apps need an Internet connection to work properly.
