Disposable phone numbers for iPhones. RingMeMaybe.

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, November 14, 2013

Disposable phone numbers for iPhones.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     A company called YourVirtualSim is out with an app called RingMeMaybe for iOS devices that lets you create disposable phone numbers.   What for?   Founder Alex Botteri …

“So you can use this number for any occasion you want.  For example, if you want to do dating online or if you have to publish an advertisement on Craig’s List, then you can use this phone number that can be an alias and people can call you on these numbers.  So you can have unlimited phone numbers on one, single phone.”

By default, the numbers which cost 99 cents expire after a week….but they can be extended for as long as you need.   The RingMeMaybe app is free to download…and it gives you two phone numbers to try out for free.    An Android version is scheduled to arrive next year.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
