幾天前筆者曾介紹一個免費收語音與文字簡訊的 SMS Receive Free 服務，在註冊一些需要收認證碼的網站時非常好用，而 iOS 中其實也有一款 Ring4 App 可提供類似功能，只不過它的主軸是建立屬於自己虛擬門號，讓需要有兩支門號...
Ring4’s deadline was November 3, 2018

A business phone line from a mobile carrier costs between 40-100 USD per month in the US, and the inconvenience of carrying two phones often discourages entrepreneurs to invest in a phone line dedicated to their business.
Sharing your personal phone number and any other personal data online is not safe. Your number, if made publicly available, can be spammed, or even used to gain access to your web services and bank accounts via social engineering techniques and hacking.
Ring4 lets users manage several phone numbers on a single smartphone, texting and calling directly from the Ring4 app.
The Ring4 numbers are real mobile phone numbers. Ring4 has entered into partnership agreements with telecommunications providers to offer phone numbers in seven countries, including the US, Canada, the UK, Australia, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Austria.
Ring4 comes as an extra telecommunication layer on the smartphone. Users can add a new phone number independent from their existing SIM card. The Ring4 app works over Wi-Fi or data (3g/4g/LTE). Calls and texts neither use the carrier plan minutes nor the text allowance.
By design, the Ring4 numbers can be used anywhere in the world, as they are operating 100% over data. Ring4 also offers cheap international outbound calls in 25+ countries and is currently expanding its coverage to make cross-border communications seamless.
Ring4 is integrated natively with the phone operating system (OS). The user experience of receiving calls or texts via Ring4 is the same as with a traditional mobile carrier. There is no barrier for adoption.
Ring4 offers freelancers an easy and affordable option to get a phone number for their business. Ring4 also lets small businesses provide employees with a work number on their personal phone. This market trend is known as bring your own device (BYOD).
*An installation is counted when the app is opened for the first time on the device it was downloaded into, provided the device has an active internet connection and has opted into providing analytics to the developer.
Ring4 is uniquely positioned to answer the market need for a light solution to a second phone line and expand internationally.
Ring4 (yourVirtualSIM Inc.) raised $225,000 from four investors in the first half of 2018.
