Vumber as PrivatePhone Replacement
Anyway, I now have three Vumbers. One is a personal Vumber that I use as voicemail only since it is associated with my credit card and/or other credit report linked accounts so I don't answer such calls directly. BUT I can return calls to that number via Vumber and even calls through Vumber to toll free numbers, which usually reveal the true phone from which the calls are being made (even when I use call through numbers like my toll free services) will show my Vumber,, though NOT my own name! The other two Vumbers are for businesses and I can provide them to the "public" so they don't give my private business line to everyone who asks. They don't appear on my websites, though. I have toll free numbers for that purpose.
The only minor problems with the service are the phone number you get will be **someplace** in the area code you choice, not necessarily in or close to the very city you want and the name on the caller ID will not be yours (and those are only a problems if someone figures out the phone number's exchange and the name on the caller ID are inconsistent with your other personal or business details and you care, which I don't! I'll report back if I find any serious flaws but, right now, it's all gravy and the service protects my personal and business privacy in a manner consistent with HTBI and that makes me comfortable.
