What is a second phone number?

A second phone number lets you make and receive calls, send and receive texts, on one mobile phone without having to reveal your main phone number. Ideal if you want to separate your work and personal life without having to use a second physical phone.

With a second phone number, you do not need a second mobile phone, any more SIM’s & no second mobile contract!

How is a second phone number protected against unwanted calls & texts?

A second phone number is protected from unwanted calls and texts when known bad actors are blocked from ever reaching you.

Another Number uniquely offers a second number with a smart call blocker that secures the privacy of your second number, eliminating scam calls & texts from a Rolodex of unwanted callers. These numbers include scammers, telemarketers & spammers.

Our technology stops the call or text ever reaching you, protecting you and your second phone number from these bad actors. In the coming months, we will be adding the ability to add numbers to the list, including anyone you would no longer like to receive calls or texts from.

How a second phone number will help your business

A second phone number will help you get you up and running with dedicated business numbers in minutes, without having to wait for activation or delivery and save you money. It’s ready to go as soon as you sign-up.

A second number will particularly help your business:

If you are looking for business phone numbers and want to save money
If your team need mobile phones but don’t want to carry second devices
If you don’t want to commit to long contracts
If you want to encourage your team to have a work-life balance

What coverage do you get with a second phone number

Another Number uniquely offers the choice of making and receiving calls depending on your situation, using your dedicated mobile voice network when on the move and VoIP in those places your mobile network doesn’t reach.

Why is this important? Because other second number services do not offer this complete coverage as they only offer either just VoIP or they use the mobile voice network using unconventional callbacks to complete your calls.
