A free second number that works just like your first.

A 2nd number for your smartphone—that’s your Sideline.

Sideline is the fastest-growing phone solution for businesses, teams, entrepreneurs, freelancers, or anyone who needs a 2nd number. Why? Because Sideline is built for professionals and works anywhere your cell phone does. How? It uses your existing carrier network (not Wi-Fi). That means you never have to pay us for minutes. With Sideline, carrying two cellphones and paying for desk phones will soon be a thing of the past.

Still on the fence? Allow this feature list help (get you down from said fence):

AREA CODE SELECTOR – Local or not, you can select the area code of your 2nd number.

NUMBER PORTING – Already have a 2nd number? Bring it with. Porting lets you transfer existing numbers to Sideline from another device or landline. No need to pay a two service providers just to have two numbers.

CARRIER RELIABILITY – Most calling apps only work over Wi-Fi. Unlike them, Sideline uses your existing cellular network. This gives you the same great call quality you get from your regular number.

TEXTING & CALLING – Texting is free and unlimited. Calling works with your carrier plan so your minutes (which are probably unlimited) get shared between your two numbers.

CUSTOM VOICEMAIL – Greet callers with a voicemail for your Sideline Number. You’ll sound more professional keep your work and personal voicemails separate.

HOW IT ALL WORKS – Your two numbers simply live in different apps. Separate caller IDs, notifications, and ringtones make it clear who’s contacting you. And on which number.

PRIVACY – This day in age, your personal phone number is your mobile identity. Probably for life. Like a social security number, you shouldn’t give it out to everyone. So yeah, a spare phone line comes in handy.

VOICEMAIL FORWARDING – On nights, weekends, or holidays, Silence Sideline and send callers directly to voicemail. You can even set up multiple voicemails or auto-text replies for any circumstance.

VERY OPTIONAL UPGRADES – We think everyone should have two numbers. So we made Sideline free for everyone (seriously). A 2nd number, calling, texting, voicemail—the whole thing. But as business grows, sometimes extra bells and whistles are nice to have. That’s why we offer the following feature upgrades:

VOICEMAIL TO TEXT – Get your voicemails transcribed and conveniently read them as a text message for $2.99/month.

SALESFORCE INTEGRATION – Automatically sync contacts and leads. Then log calls and business communication so you can always be closin’. *$2.99 Subscription required

INTERNATIONAL CALLING – With over 165 countries supported, staying in touch with people all over Mother Earth is easy. Unlimited plans are a flat and affordable fee of $15/ month per user. *Team account required.

REMOVE ADS – One of the ways we keep Sideline free is by showing ads from time to time. If you’re not into it, you can remove them for $2.99/month.

TERMS AND STUFF – Sideline subscriptions are automatically billed monthly to your iTunes Account. Auto-renewals get charged within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period. You can turn off auto-renew in your account settings. Unfortunately, cancellations aren't allowed during active subscription periods. If you don’t want to pay for Sideline, just continue using it for free. 

See our privacy policy and terms of use (they make a great bedtime story). 

*Data and Internet connectivity are still required for some general functionality. Sideline, “Using your carrier network” simply makes call quality more reliable than calls over VoIP or Wi-Fi.

*Calling and texting support for Hawaii and Alaska coming soon.
