Why Do I Need Line2?
Line2 is great for freelancers who want to keep their business number separate from their personal number. Since Line2 is compatible will all mobile devices, including iOS, Android, and iPad, you can install it on any device and receive phone calls no matter where you are. If you set the service up on your iPad, you can even have it forward your calls to your actual phone number, so your customers are calling your business line but you receive the calls on your personal number.
Even if you don’t plan on using Line2 as your business line, if you’d like to have a second line available to give to acquaintances to protect your personal number, Line2 is perfect for that. You can still receive their calls and with the app if you ever decide you want to stop receiving calls from that person, you can block that number with the touch of a button.
Line2 is also great for parents who aren’t quite ready to get their child a fully featured phone. It can still make and receive calls as long as there is WiFi service available, so Line2 on an iPod Touch is the perfect way to get a young teenager acquainted with the responsibilities of carrying a full-fledged smartphone without having to worry about data overages.
The best part of the Line2 app is that there is no contract to use it. For high-definition calling from your iPad and other mobile devices, you can get a plan starting at only $9.95 a month. The iPad app is beautifully designed, with contacts laid out at the top in a carousel style animation that you can flip through to dial the right person. Adding people to conference calls is easy and texting while talking is possible as well. Overall, Line2 is the perfect solution for iPad owners who want to make calls and send texts. It’s also perfect for mobile users who want to add a second line to their currently existing line without paying for an extra data plan.
