    Hey everyone, I'm a long time lurker here and I'm finally taking action and deciding to do something with my life haha.
    but anyway...
    What do you guys use for phone numbers? I need a new one for clients to use and for me to send out. Obviously I know I could go down to verizon, at&t, etc. and get a new phone number that way but I'm sure with technology, smartphones, and whatnot theres an easier way. Also anyone know how I could go about having multiple phone numbers on one phone? That would be easiest. I'm thinking there has to be an app or some service out there that can do this but I'm just not sure where. I thought of using registering one through skype and using the app on my phone but im not sure how reliable that is. Thanks in advance, and I'm looking forward to becoming active here

    Welcome to BHW and enjoy your stay!

    As far as I know you can only do this with having a dual sim phone.

    For local number in office you can use Skype

    For multiple mobile numbers in one phone you can use dual sim :) i use galaxy grand duos with my personal and business phones

    Skype is good ... plus you can take messages / vet your calls easily at the computer. Just research the number before you pick it to make sure it doesn't have any negative google results.

    I use voip integrated into my phone with an app called csipsimple, this enables all my calls from multiple numbers to come to my mobile. I personally use voipfone (uk) and have never had any trouble with them.

    One thing that you can use is a call forwarding service. So you can have any number, even a local number and any calls that it receives will get sent to yours. This can be your landline or mobile.

    Buy a skype number and pay 10 bucks and you can talk more than 1000 minutes
