Second Phone Number FAQs

Q: Can I get a second phone number in any US or Canada area code?
A: Mostly. We cover many but not all area codes in the US or Canada, so you can generally get a local phone number near where you live. For the area codes we do have, you can often find a local vanity number – it just takes a bit of searching to find just the second phone number you want. With a local vanity number, you can have digits that correspond to letters – like DUDE being 3833 – so you can have a very memorable number.
Q: How can I use the second number to improve my privacy?
A: It’s super easy. Just give out this phone number whenever someone needs your phone number and you don’t want them to have your cell. For example, when you’re applying for a credit card, or need to provide a number to a cable company – even on your tax form. When people call the number, you can set it up so they roll right to voicemail without ever ringing your phone. Of course, you can also let it ring through to your phone, while keeping your cell phone number hidden.
Q: How can I use the second number in my business?
A: We’re heard of a ton of different uses, but the simplest is to just publish your second number instead of your cell phone number. They are forwarded to your cell phone number, where you decide whether you answer or have it go to voicemail. If you don’t want to deal with them, it’s just one tap to make them think your second number is out of service. It’s a great way to filter out unwanted callers.
Q: How does the second number work with my existing YouMail account?
A: It behaves exactly the same – users hear whatever greeting you’ve set up on your main number, they have the same auto-reply settings, and the voicemails and missed calls will show up in your YouMail app or be sent to your email account on file. It takes almost no set up at all to use the number – just pick it, give it out and enjoy.
