One phone with two numbers! Your existing number will work just as before. But you'll have a second number available (inbound only) that you can share for things like bank accounts, credit cards, etc, to stay private, or for work purposes.
How Free, Second Number Works
Your free, second phone number can be set-up to go straight to voicemail or ring your phone just like your primary line. You can also choose your preferred area code. Your additional number can be answered directly by YouMail, effectively becoming a dedicated voicemail mailbox, or you can set it up to forward calls to your mobile phone when the number is called.
Why a Free, Second Number is Important
It's private, giving you an opportunity to screen calls from unknown numbers, or have all calls go straight to voicemail. You're able to stay anonymous! You can easily separate personal calls from business calls on the same phone for efficiency. Choose from an assortment of available numbers in your current area code.
Who Benefits from a Free, Second Phone Number?
It's great for anyone who wants a bit more privacy. It's also ideal for freelancers, small-business owners and others who want two lines but only one phone.

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 Plus or YouMail Professional).
