Mobile VoIP to the Rescue!

25 May

It has happened ten times.  There have now been ten different situations where I was elated that a person called the second line on my mobile phone.  This line is for people I just met, or don’t want to speak to, and I let all those calls go to voice mail.

I cannot tell you how happy I am with VoX.  I downloaded a mobile VoIP app from VoX and I got a second phone number and voice mail.  I give it to everyone I don’t really want to talk to.  I use it for outbound calling too, because I don’t always want people to have my primary cell phone number show up in their caller ID.

So, here it is.  Ten times I gave out my VoX phone number, and when they called me back, I let the call go to voicemail.

  1. I signed up for a mortgage quote online.  They don’t give you any useful information until they have your phone number.
  2. I filled out a credit application.  Heck, every creditor should go to voice mail.
  1. I toured a timeshare, and got my $75 dinner voucher in exchange for my phone number.
  2. I took a test drive, and they wanted to call me for the next 5 days to see if I had decided to buy it yet.
  3. I sat next to a dude at the ball game and he thought we had made a connection.
  4. I wanted to buy something on Craig’s list.  I called them on my VoX line, and I never gave them my primary phone number.
  5. I did that online dating thing and had to give a phone number so we could meet.
  6. I met a person that I thought was really cool, but it was 2:00 AM.
  7. The neighbor had an open house, and I had to see the inside.  The selling broker won’t let you leave without a phone number.
  8. I met a businessman in the street who asked me if I knew people who might want to work in the new office he was opening up.  He would not leave until I gave him my phone number, and he punched it into his cell phone and called me while I was standing in front of him to make sure he had the right number.

See, you need to get a second phone line on your smartphone.  Let all those calls go to voice mail if you want.

VoX has several calling plans, including U.S. at 2 cents a minute and huge savings on international calling.  I don’t use international yet.  If you want the Pay and Go plan, then for only $1.00, you can get a real phone number that rings on your mobile phone. It comes with its own voice mail system, so your VoX line can have a different voice mail greeting from your primary line.

VoX saves me every day.  You can see it at
