Are you wondering what exactly Sideline is meant to do?
Sideline is a 2nd number for your personal smartphone. Sideline is the free phone solution for small businesses, entrepreneurs, freelancers, or anyone who needs a 2nd phone line. Now you can keep work and life on separate numbers, not separate phones.
ADD A FREE NUMBER IN YOUR AREA CODE
If you need a local number, just select the area code and get a number that works wherever you do. You get to talk and text from a dedicated business line—and because it’s a real phone number, you can call and text anyone, even landlines.
CALLING & TEXTING
Your second number works 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.
CARRIER CALL QUALITY, FROM AN APP
Sideline works with your carrier network to give you the quality and reliability you need to work from anywhere. This also lets you split your calling minutes (which are probably unlimited) between two numbers. Unlike “cloud-based,” “virtual,” or buzzword phone systems, Sideline doesn’t rely on a perfect WiFi signal or expensive data plan to keep you connected.
KEEP YOUR PERSONAL NUMBER PRIVATE
You probably shouldn’t give out your personal phone to just anyone. That’s why there’s Sideline. But it’s not just a second phone line for work. It can be your temporary number. Your anonymous number. Your work phone. Your disposable number. Your fake phone number. It’s whatever you need it to be to protect your primary cell number.
On top of your free phone number, Sideline comes with nifty features such as SMS text messaging, MMS picture messaging, group messaging, custom voicemail, stickers, and emoji. All for free.
