A 2nd number is just the start.

Sideline’s suite of features lets you protect your privacy, create a professional identity, prioritize calls, connect with customers, add team members, and get more done.

2nd Number

Sideline gives you a 2nd number to simplify work and life.

Pick your number, build your identity.

Choose a local area code and search for a memorable number. Or use number porting to transfer an existing number from another device or landline.

Texting, calling, and voicemail included.

Texting is unlimited, calling works with your carrier minutes (which are likely unlimited), Sideline voicemail is easy to customize, and everything stays separate from your other number.

Reliability you can trust.

Sideline uses your carrier network for reliability anywhere your phone gets reception. Unlike VoIP services, Sideline gives you the freedom to leave your WiFi network without compromising call quality.
