There are many dual-SIM Android smartphones available around here, and even some with three SIM card slots. Although they are mostly popular in Asia and South America. It's pretty useful, because it means that you can use two numbers or three numbers on the same phone. Which means work and personal numbers together, instead of carrying around two smartphones. Now there's an app that hopes to accomplish that. It's called Flyp. It allows you to use up to 6 numbers all on one phone. That's pretty impressive right?
One reason to have multiple numbers, other than work and personal numbers, is illustrated in the video that is down below. If you go on a date and not sure you want to give the guy your number, you can give him one of the six numbers you have in Flyp, that way you can just ignore the guy if you want and he doesn't have your personal number. Which is also a pretty good idea.
The app is free, but does do in-app purchases. You get one number for free with the app, so you are able to test it out see if you like it, that sort of thing. Each additional number is $2.99/month or $29.99 per year. You can also choose separate area codes for each one as well, which is a nice added benefit. Flyp also promises call quality identical to what you have now on your mobile carrier. And this goes for all six phone numbers. You can control texts, calls and voicemails for each phone number individually through the app, which is actually pretty sweet.
We're not sure why anyone would need as many as 6 phone numbers, but having the option is always nice. If Google does every get rid of Google Voice, we do have an alternative that will work great on iPhone and Android. Working on both platforms is always a great thing too, in case people switch platforms from Android to iOS, or vice versa. You can pick up Flyp from the Play Store using the link in the sources below.
