On the next screen, you can get a number by area, zip code or city and enter a word or phrase or number if you want something specific. When someone calls on your Google Voice number, it will ring in Google Hangouts by default.
However, you can go into the settings page on Google Voice and have the calls forwarded to your main number if you like. In addition, you can record your own voicemail greeting and your name.
If you don’t have a large data plan and you’re not connected to Wi Fi, this could cause problems for some users.
Sideline is the only app that uses your carrier network to make and receive calls, thereby reducing data usage.
There are basically only five recommendations I have for apps: Google Hangouts, Sideline, Burner, Skype and Line 2.
In terms of cost, Google Hangouts is free, Sideline is a month, Burner is a month, Line 2 is a month and Skype varies depending on the number.
If you currently use your main phone number for everything under the sun, you might have noticed that those annoying telemarketing calls have started appearing on your cell phone.
Another nice advantage to Google Voice is that you can still receive calls on your phone even without Hangouts being installed.
In my opinion, you should start with free first and go from there until you find the app that works best for you.
If you’re not running a business of any kind, then Hangouts will probably be more than enough for most people.
Unfortunately, if you use your main phone number when signing up on Craigslist or Airbnb or when applying for a credit card, the number may eventually find its way to these telemarketing companies.
Luckily, you can add a second phone number to your current phone that you can use anytime you don’t want to share your main number.
