Carrying around separate phones for business and personal use is now a thing of the past thanks to the introduction of the My Numbers app on Verizon.
My Numbers lets you add up to four additional (virtual) numbers to your existing smartphone with unlimited domestic calling and texting.
The My Numbers app is available at the Google Play or Apple App Store and it is compatible with 4G iOS and Android smartphones. The next step is to choose the number (U.S.) you wish to add from the available list and you’re all set. Each added number costs $15 per line per month. You can have a local phone number for business and another for personal use on a single phone, with separate voicemail and text messaging boxes.
As a note, when you travel to another country, you will need an international data roaming plan or Wi-Fi connection to use My Numbers. The same limitations apply when you access My Numbers within or outside the United States.
You may also download the app on up to 5 smartphones and activate any one of your My Numbers subscriptions on those devices.
