Our first recommendation is Nextiva, they offer powerful tools that allow you to keep your local number if you want to use it or swap to a virtual phone number for a different geographic location. They even have call forwarding and a virtual receptionist for phone calls.

RingCentral is another powerful virtual phone number app provider for small businesses. They have phone numbers for all of the United States and Canada, toll-free 800 numbers, voicemail and more.

Grasshopper is a startup-friendly service offering similar tools to the above as well as call forwarding, voice mail, business VoIP and more.

Phone.com with its great domain name is a great option for a virtual business phone system. They offer cheaper call rates than some for European countries and Canada by counting those as local calls.

Google Voice is a free phone app with limited features. It is a good service for those starting out but as you grow we would recommend a service like Nextiva.

eVoice is a popular service offering international coverage, particularly in the United Kingdom. They include business phone systems, virtual numbers, toll-free numbers, and local numbers for different regions.

    because of your recommendation, I used the "www.ereceptionist.co.uk" and I lost all my money on my card they chatted on me.. this is what happened.
    Hi! I have a problem here!! when I wanted to activate my account (The payment process) it gives me this message
    "Sorry! There was a problem submitting your request. Please try again or call us at 0800 005 1600 for immediate assistance."

    This means that the payment process does not have to be completed. So the above message also tells me "There was a problem submitting your request. Please try again" so I tried again, and got the same message. And every time I tried, the website keeps deducted the purchase price without my knowledge!

    I lost all my money that i have in my card

    I still haven’t received any response from them(((

  5. Apparent Reflections on April 6, 2021 at 4:40 pm

    I wonder what are the "cons" of these options?



  6. laurent faraut on April 6, 2021 at 4:49 pm

    Thanks for the tutorial ! For me the best app remains SMSTUJ (on google play). It works great, with many countries and phone numbers: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ruedulogiciel.smstuj



  7. ducy samos on April 6, 2021 at 4:50 pm

    Someone is harassing me using google voice. Is there anyway to report this??



  8. Ian Mayman on April 6, 2021 at 4:50 pm

    Do any of these off phone numbers for countries that are not for America or Canada? Apps like Libon works in the UK, and Hushed offer virtual numbers for the UK. Google Voice definitely has the capital to do so, yet chooses not to. Perhaps this video is only for North American audiences (since Libon and Hushed aren’t mentioned), like just about everything on the internet.



  9. Liv Beteta on April 6, 2021 at 4:51 pm

    I’m surprised you listed ring central #2, they have some really bad reviews on pricing & tech issues on app & customer service… hmm, thank you for the video.

    Please indicate that Most of the suggested websites are offering their services in the USA and Canada Only.

    Don’t believe these fake videos! They are all just trying to scam you somehow… If you are trying to hack somebody’s viber account, then try using ViberHax0r, it is the only working hack. You’ll find it on google… 🙂
