Verizon has announced a new service, called “My Numbers” which allows you to have up to 5 numbers on one phone. Gone are those days when you’d have to carry multiple phones for your work and home needs.
The new service allows you to add 4 additional numbers to your smartphone. Each new number comes with unlimited domestic calling + texting and will run you $15/month. There are other apps like Burner, Flyp, and Google Voice that have relieved some of the stress of the business and personal phones dilemma, but this is one of the first efforts from a major carrier.
Verizon’s Director of Product Marketing, Keena Drigsby, said:
My Numbers is a great solution for entrepreneurs, customers with side hustles, and for those who just want the convenience and flexibility of having multiple phone numbers without the hassle of carrying around a separate phone.
To avail the service, download the app from the Google Play or Apple App Store. Choose the number you wish to add from the available list and you’re all set. Within the app, you can manage all of your calls and texts across however many numbers you choose to add.
