About 2ndLine – Second Phone Number
The 2ndLine app designed for mobile professionals, freelancers, and entrepreneurs, to call and message without using your real. It works like your regular phone number, but uses your data or wifi connection. With the 2ndLine app, you can send unlimited messages and make free phone calls to any phone number in the US & Canada. You can also make calls to other countries outside the US, by purchasing international long distance credits.
Just like I mention above, it is a VoIP service (voice over IP), and routes the calls through your device’s data connection, not through your existing plan’s cellular connection. The service also allows you to setup your voicemail. Wondering how the service comes free, well the app comes with ads for the free service but, you can remove it by going Premium. This requires you paying a certain amount so you don’t get those annoying ads hitting your phone.
