    "This app is simply intuitive. This app is not free but it has like a 3-day trial. Well, I use this for my events styling business to find my clients and so i think the most efficient and affordable plan for me is the 5 usd per month. I completely trust this app when it comes to keeping my privacy because it lets me choose a different number to use for calling and texting. "

    "I never thought I could call and text from a new private number of my preference. However, the validity of this app is within US and Canada only. My other business partners are now in Asia so they couldn't use it very well...Just a little inference, I think this app is called Burner because it lets you BURN your number after uising it like you can toss it ot and get a new one in seconds. To those who do not want to pay, it has a trial period."

    "Of all the choices, I think this offers the most affordable plan monthly. It's only 2.99 a month and it instantly removes all the ads. You actually become a 'PRO' user. Just be cautious because this app uses your carrier service so you will be charged."

    "I can add up to 4 numbers of my choice even the area code. Unlike the other choices international phone numbers from UK to Netherlands to Sweden are available . The good thing about this is that the mobile numbers are real and it can do exactly the same things you can do using a regular phone number from your service provider. "

    "International calls are pretty cheap using this app, although if you reside in the US amd Canada call is absolutely free. However, this works just like the other apps that you should be in the US or Canada to choiice your phone number for your choice. Sending MMS for free is also one of the pros."

    "Whoa there, 5 different numbers in one cellular phone is cool. Ive always wanted to keep my true identity but I have no idea how to. Apparently, only later did I know that I can also choose the area code I want for each of the 5 numbers. High quality connections and calls is what I love about this app."
