Click to call Raul Gonzalez, a Mobile First Website Designer and PHP Developer in Dallas, TX Google Voice allows a second mobile phone number to be defined to your Smartphone for FREE!

Do you want to define a second cellphone number to your Smartphone for FREE?

WHY SHOULD YOU CONSIDER IT?

Here are two facts that you should know:
  1. Landline phones are a dying breed! Consider de-activating the landline and saving the money!
  2. According to a recent survey, over 50% of the US households use only cellphones!
The problem is everyone wants to know how to call you. Do you really want to give your cell phone number to businesses and strangers? Do you want to risk more telemarketing or unwanted calls? Do you want to keep your privacy?

THE SOLUTION

Google has a FREE service that allows you to have a second mobile number active on your Smartphone. It is called GOOGLE VOICE and these are the benefits and features: HOW TO SIGN UP?
  1. All you need is a FREE Gmail Email address. If you do not have a Gmail address, you can sign up for one at www.gmail.com
  2. Once you have a Gmail Email address and password, use a computer or laptop browser and go to www.google.com/voice/ and activate a new service. Here in the Dallas - Forth Worth metroplex, all 214 area code numbers have already been taken but, there are still 972, 469, and 817 area code phone numbers available.
  3. You will have the option to select a phone number that has certain values (i.e. you may want your phone number to end with a certain sequence like 1303 or 4237 etc so it is easy to remember).
  4. Once you have a new Google Voice number and it is associated with your Gmail email account then:
    • Forward your Google Number to your Cell Phone number.
    • Change any of the other Google Settings
  5. You will have to download Apps from either the Apple or Android App Store. On the IOS App Store, I recommend these Apps:
    • If you are just starting to use this service, download the FREE Google Voice App. Changes to the Google Voice settings can ONLY be made by login in using your web browser and, the User Interface (UI) is not very intuitive.
    • If you want to be able to change the Google Voice settings from the App itself, download the GV Connect App. The App costs $2.99 and there is a onetime fee of $0.99 to use the new MMS features. The User Interface (UI) is very simple and easy to understand.
    • If you have an IPad, download the Google Hangouts APP so that you can still make phone calls in case your Smartphone is lost or stolen.
  6. One you have downloaded the APPs, login using the Gmail email account and password and configure the settings.
