  • Didn’t respond right away when answer a call.

    By Jaceyp29
    I had to say hello at least twice before the person who called me could hear me. There was not an immediate connection like my main line and was not a great impression for incoming business calls. Now looking for new second line app. Also I had four calls all asking for different people or businesses, so wondering who else is using the number I paid for. Other than that, worked fine.
  • Great app, still room for improvement

    By Rebecca in VA
    I manage a very large group of doctors & mid-level providers in several hospitals, & I used to have to carry 2 cell phones every day. Sideline lets me use my personal *phone* without utilizing my personal *cell number*. AND you get to select the number you want to use. Improvements I would like to see: - if you’re in a text message, there’s no number notification in the left corner to show you there are other text messages waiting - there is a lag in the calls, no matter how fast your internet speed is. You don’t hear the lag, but there’s a delay in the other person hearing you, so the conversation can get very confusing very quickly. - you can’t send GIFs in messaging. This is a small issue, but would be a nice addition. Otherwise this is a great app, very dependable, and I use it every single day!
  • Forced subscription!

    By JeffLamp
    Was a good 4 Star app but now it forces you to pay $10 PER MONTH!!! Oh no!
  • Whatttt it’s not PRIVATE

    By SabiatNova
    I thought this app was AMAZING until I called my sideline number It went to voicemail AND GAVE OUT MY REAL NUMBER ON THE VOICEMAIL. That’s ridiculous!!!
  • Don’t waste your money

    By jsgoodrich
    I started using this as a free app. It was worth what I paid for it. Then in October it went to $9.99 a month. I looked at other plans and said sure I will try. They said if I stay for one month and don’t like it I could port for free. Shocking had to pay $19.99 to port. As talked about from other people calls don’t come through, they have issues with voicemail. Try to get support they don’t read what you send they send back faq pages you have already seen and read. It seems like trained monkeys could do that and have a better response. I paid their fee to port and out of the $60.00 for service I paid them it will be the best money I spent. They never forward calls from the same number so you never know if it a call from sideline coming in or a scam call. I have talked to more scammers in the last 6 months than ever. I hope that you look at this and pass this app by. I agree that they hold numbers hostage as reported by others. Ps of the developer wants to respond the only response I want is a full refund. Your product is junk. The app crash all the time. It is a joke.
  • Not free! False advertising

    By Hot Vegas Nights
    When I heard about this app, I was skeptical wether or not I should try it or not but when I read the apps usage and in store purchases I was like okay! I’ll try it since it’s free. Well I downloaded the app and it took a few days to get the app going because when I would pick a number for the app it would say I’m already registered and there’s to many attempts anyway long story short I sent a email explaining and sideline fixed the issue but now they want me to pay monthly fees. No thanks
  • Buggy

    By Dubba Dubba
    I really want to like this app. If it worked properly it would be well worth the monthly subscription. Unfortunately, if I don’t answer a call to my sideline number it will go to to my personal voicemail about half the time. I’ve tried all sorts of different settings to no avail. Support hasn’t been able to find a solution to the issue. I’ve been using the app for almost a year but I’m going to have to go back to carrying a second phone for business :(
  • Advertised Falsely

    By ScorpioVixen0
    Advertised as a free service but it’s $10 a month. Smh
  • 2nd subscription

    By Mikey514
    When advertising that an existing customer to get a second subscription there should be a discounted price for both lines that would encourage people to add on the second line as a choice
  • Great, awesome!

    By Deb the pianist
    I had been looking for something like this, and thinking of getting a second cell phone to have a different number for my banking that I want to keep private. Now I have it! I love the fact that I can choose a different ring tone from my regular ring, so then I know it's a private call. I am blind, using my iPhone with speech, so I sometimes have trouble accessing my voicemail, and cannot find how to put it on do not disturb, but, if you can help with that, the App is excellent!! I also love being able to turn on call forwarding when I can't answer calls, but still can answer if I get calls on my regular number. This App works so much better than others I've tried. Thank you.
