Q: Can I get a free phone number in any US or Canada area code?
A: YouMail has free phone numbers in many area codes in the US or Canada, so there’s a good chance you can get a local phone number. It’s also possible to get a free local vanity number. (A vanity number is a number that spells a word or words with the telephone keypad. For example, 7665 spells “pool.”) With a bit of searching, you can find a local vanity number – so your free phone number is exactly the free phone number you want – that becomes unforgettable to others.
Q: How can I use my free phone number?
A: Most customers use it to preserve their privacy if/when they give out their phone number. For example, if you are opening an account with bank, etc, your free YouMail phone number is ideal. Also, depending upon your business, you may not want to publish your cell phone number where everyone can see it (think a realtor’s bus bench or another type of ad). Just publish your free phone number and set it up to forward to your cell. It will ring right to you, but gives you the option to play ‘number is out of service’ if needed.
Q: How does my free phone number work with my existing YouMail account?
A: There’s no difference at all – users will have all the same settings (think: greetings, auto-reply) and their YouMail inbox will show all the messages and hangups to that number. It really is easy.
Q: Is the free phone number really free?
A: YouMail’s free local phone number comes with any premium YouMail plan as an extra bonus. That means customers get the benefits of a free YouMail account, plus a host of amazing features (depending upon if you have YouMail Premium or YouMail Professional).
