A 2nd number for your smartphone—that’s your Sideline. Sideline is the fastest-growing phone solution for businesses, teams, entrepreneurs, freelancers, and anyone who needs a 2nd number. Your second number comes with all the features of a regular phone number such as calling, texting, voicemail, and more. On top of that, everything works with your existing carrier network (instead of Wi-Fi), making Sideline the most reliable and highly-rated phone app out there. The Sideline Subscription gets you unlimited access to all of the great calling, texting, and voicemail features with premium support. ($9.99/month or $99.99/year In-App Purchase Required) WHY SIDELINE? – With Sideline, there’s no need to carry two cell phones, stay tied to a landline, or use your personal number for work. HOW IT WORKS – Your two numbers simply live in different apps. Separate caller ID, notifications, and ringtones make it clear who’s contacting you—and on which number.  CUSTOM NUMBER SELECTOR – Choose your area code and search memorable numbers like, “(555) DOG-WALK,” or combinations that are “JUST4U.” NUMBER PORTING – Already have a 2nd number? Bring it with. Porting lets you transfer existing numbers to Sideline from another device or landline.  CARRIER RELIABILITY – Unlike other calling apps that only work over Wi-Fi, Sideline uses your phone’s existing cellular network*. This gives you the same great call quality you get from your regular number.  TEXTING & CALLING – Texting is unlimited. Calling works with your carrier plan so minutes (which are probably unlimited) get shared between your two numbers.  SEPARATE VOICEMAIL – Greet callers with a professional voicemail greeting for your Sideline number. You can even set up multiple voicemails for any circumstance. AUTO-TEXT REPLIES – Every missed call is a customer you may never get back. So Auto-Reply lets you engage customers with a text message whenever you miss their call. TEAM NUMBER – Let your phone number ring simultaneously on multiple devices so your whole team can call, text, and respond from one line. Sharing a number improves company collaboration, responsiveness, and customer satisfaction. OPTIONAL UPGRADES ––––––– VOICEMAIL-TO-TEXT – Get your voicemails transcribed and conveniently read them as a text message. ($2.99/month In-App Purchase Required) VoIP CALLING – Make phone calls over WiFi if your carrier network doesn’t have a stronger cellular connection. ($2.99/month In-App Purchase Required) SALESFORCE INTEGRATION – Access your Salesforce contacts and leads with Sideline. Then log calls and business communication so you can always be closin’. ($9.99/month In-App Purchase Required) MANAGE MULTIPLE NUMBERS – Remotely manage multiple numbers and turn employee phones into an entire company phone system. (Enterprise account required. See for details) TERMS ––––––– The required Sideline Subscription and all other in-app purchases are automatically billed monthly or annually to your iTunes Account and auto-renew, unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period. Payments will be charged to your iTunes account upon confirmation of purchase. You can turn off auto-renew or manage subscriptions in your account settings. Cancellations take effect at the end of the active subscription period. Privacy policy & terms of use: *Data and Internet connectivity are still required for general functionality. “Using your carrier network,” makes call quality more reliable than calls over VoIP or Wi-Fi.  Hawaii, Alaska and the US territories aren't currently supported.



  • Disappointed

    By Ty D. Smith
    They went to paid app. Claiming the ads would overwhelm. Why did you not do both and let the public decide if the ads were to annoying. They were an excellent service but at 10 bucks a month they are not that much better than most of the free services. Greed kills and I believe it will kill these guys.
  • Yes disappointed

    By Apontewife
    To change and before it was free is disappointing.. first of all the signal isn’t great now everything they offer cost.. how sad but I guess it’s others out there I’ll try them.. they charge or not so good service but oh well
  • Used to be......

    By AA_ronTX
    10$ a month...!? I can add a 2nd line on my wireless provider for that much per month and just forward the calls. I don't know where they get the huevos to think leasing a # is worth that much.
  • Paid Subscription!!

    I can’t believe that I paid for an app that doesn’t even work. Will not be renewing my subscription. Back to Google Voice.
  • Shame on Sideline! 😦

    By Island Life
    Shame on Sideline for abandoning longtime users and attempting to force us into a subscription. Sideline was okay as an ad supported app, but pathetic at best as a paid app. The bulk of the 5 star reviews are for the old free version of the app and should no longer be considered representative of its quality. Look at your reviews - there’s no demand for a forced subscription, so don’t lie to people who gave you a chance and even recommended the service to others. Sideline deserves zero stars for the nonsense PR responses they’ve been pushing. Fellow users: No way is what Sideline is offering worth $10/month. There are much better options out there for your money. Plus, Google Voice is FREE and has become even better recently! Sideline: You guys missed an opportunity to grandfather in a group of users that could have been cheerleaders for a premium optional subscription. Folks who were using the ad based Sideline should have been treated as early adopters and shown some loyalty (instead of the frankly insulting offer to pay $70 a year for what had been free). I hope you guys reverse course on the forced subscription, but these days it seems like everyone is ready to power through with poor decisions.
  • Is not working as good as it used to

    By Artistic Professional
    This use to be a (mostly) reliable phone line. However, since I paid $70 to use it, most of the time it is not working. I am risking the loss of important business calls. Please fix the app.
  • Greedy developers

    By 61guitarman61
    It is a very disappointing move for the developers to go from a free service to a very expensive subscription service. They waited for a year to blindside their users with this nonsense. They waited until business users had established their service and printed business cards with the sideline number and had clients and associates using the sideline number for a long period of time and then WHAM! “Now you must pay!” Dirty rotten move! There are no negative stars otherwise I would use them. And I will NOT be using sideline any longer. Bye bye! UPDATE: The developers answered with their standard form letter response/apology/justification for their going from free to very expensive product. I can understand wanting to get some revenue from their effort. But to go from free to $10 per month is ludicrous. Had they said two dollars per month or three dollars per month I may have considered it. But to go all the way up to nearly as much as what a cell phone provider would charge for a second line is ridiculous! Apology not accepted! Pure greed will indeed kill your nifty idea and your business.
  • Worthless app

    By BagofMagic
    You can do the same thing for free with google voice. This app charges a lot of money for things you can get add sponsored other places. Avoid the app and find a free one.
  • Lame

    By Cindy_8440
    This was a great app up until they either wanted $9.99 a month for $69.99 for a year subscription.
