What is a free phone number?

With YouMail, you can get a free phone number that adds a second phone line to your cell phone. One phone with two numbers, as simple as that.

With a free phone number from YouMail, your existing number works just like before. You can call with it, or send and receive text messages, just like you might expect. But now you have a second phone number available to give out when you want to keep your cell phone private or keep your business calls separated from your personal calls.

For example, do you really want every place you shop to be able to call you or your cell phone? Do you want credit cards and your bank to harass you by calling you at all hours to remind you that you missed a payment? Or would you rather have them call a second phone number where you can have them go to voicemail by default?

Similarly, do you really want your business calls mixed with your personal calls? Or your business messages mixed with your personal messages? It is so much better to be able to answer business calls formally, while answering your personal calls casually.

Why get a free phone number
from YouMail?

With YouMail, you not only get exactly the phone number you want, with calling and texting, but you also get state-of-the-art business phone features.

Your free phone number from YouMail can be a local phone number, in your area code or another area code of your choosing. You can even get more than one, if you want to look like you have a local presence in multiple areas. If you want, you can even choose a local vanity number – a super memorable phone number so people don’t forget when you give it out, like 310-DOG-WALK or 202-777-RENT. Nothing better than a phone number that someone won’t have to write down or type into their cell phone

Your free phone number from YouMail is also very powerful and completely configurable. You can set it up to go straight to voicemail (like a dedicated voicemail box), perfect for those potential marketing calls you just don’t want to deal with. Or you can set it up to forward to your cell phone, so your phone rings, just like with your primary line.

You can use this phone number for personal or business use. The great thing is that it allows you to have a business phone line where you can manage your phone calls on the go. It also comes with a virtual receptionist that includes an auto attendant for routing inbound calls, business greetings, automatic SMS replies, voicemail transcriptions, and much more.
