Google has a FREE service that allows you to have a second cell phone number ACTIVE on your Smartphone

 Benefits and Features 

👍 Unlike other FREE Apps such as Skype and WhatsApp that require both parties to use the same service with Google Voice, you can call any number in Canada and the United States for FREE!

👍 You can initiate a phone call or receive a phone call via your carrier's network or Wi-Fi connection in the US.

👍 You can send and receive SMS messages via your carrier's network or Wi-Fi connection.

👍 You can send and receive MMS messages via your carrier's network or Wi-Fi connection.

👍 To initiate a conference call, Press 5 to bring another phone number into the conversation.

👍 Received calls can be recorded by Pressing 4. All parties will hear the "Call Recording on" announcement and the conversation will now be recorded!

👍 You can BLOCK individual phone numbers and they will hear this recording when they attempt to call you back!

👍 Both the Phone Calls, SMS and MMS Messages can be forwarded to your cell phone so that you can receive all notifications ON ONE DEVICE.

👍 If you are ever in a situation where you cannot locate your Smartphone but you have an iPad, you can use the FREE Google Hangouts APP to call any U.S phone number using the iPad's carrier's cellular network or a Wi-Fi connection!

👍 This feature alone is a great backup plan if your Smartphone is lost or stolen because you can still make phone calls using your iPad!

👍 If you are ever out of the country and as long as you are connected to a Wi-Fi network, you can CALL THE U.S FOR FREE by dialing the appropriate international dialing code.

👍 YOU KEEP YOUR PRIVACY by not giving out your real cell phone number to strangers and businesses!

👍 You can also use this second cell phone number for a business and determine the hours when you want the calls to go to Voice Mail. My business phone number 972-372-4237 is a Google Voice Number!

How to sign up?

✅ 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.

✅ Once you have a Gmail Email address and password, use a computer or laptop browser and login to www.google.com/voice/.

✅ CHOOSE A NEW PHONE NUMBER and activate the new service. Here in Dallas, all 214 area code numbers have already been taken but, there are still 469, and 972 area code phone numbers available.

✅ 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).

Download and Configure Apps

Download the appropriate App(s) from either the Apple or Android App Store.

👍 On the IOS App Store:

✅ Download the GV Connect App to your iPhone. The App costs $2.99 and there is a one time fee of $0.99 to use the new MMS features to send and receive pictures.

👍 You WILL NOT FIND ANY OTHER APP THAT HAS AS MANY FEATURES AND OPTIONS and the User Experience (UX) is very simple and easy to understand.

 My Recommendation for the GV Connect APP Settings are: 

Download the FREE Google Hangouts App On your Ipad

❌ An iPad IS NOT SUPPOSED TO MAKE PHONE CALLS.

✅ If you have an iPad, download the Google Hangouts APP so that you CAN MAKE PHONE CALLS in case your Smartphone is lost or stolen!
