Want to save money on your phone number? You’re in the right place.
A phone number is a necessity. You need a phone number for the basics of daily life: working, socializing, emergencies, and everything else.
Want to order something online? You need to provide a phone number.
Filling out a job application? Include a phone number.
Setting up a profile on a dating website or application? You know what’s next: phone number.
Now, having just one phone number for all those different facets of your life is not ideal. But it’s easy to see why most people make do with a single number—that one number can already be expensive.
According to the Pew Research Center, 96% of Americans own a cellular phone, and 86% own a smartphone. Consider as well that the average price of Apple and Samsung’s flagship cell phones are now in the $1000 range.
So, do you want to pay for two phones?
Your default response is probably something like, “No way, I don’t want to pay for two phones.” We don’t blame you! You’re probably imagining the compounded cost of that imaginary extra line. Not to worry, Hushed can help you save money on your phone number, and get as many numbers as you want.
Luckily, Hushed is here to cut down the costs. A second line won’t cost you more than your traditional phone number, so don’t worry about doubling or tripling your phone bill—it will actually cost you way, way less. Depending on how long you want that second number to last, it will cost as little as $1.99.
Hushed is a privacy-focused mobile app. Separating out the different aspects of your life into different phone numbers will help you to keep some parts of your life private. Let’s say you want to keep your business distinct from your home life—that’s what the second number is for.
Hushed numbers are so inexpensive because they are not your typical contracted phone numbers. Our numbers are VoIP numbers (voice over internet protocol).
To use Hushed, you do need to have an internet connection. Hushed works with both WiFi and mobile data, which you likely already have as part of your traditional phone plan.
But the use of VoIP numbers isn’t the only reason Hushed is so low-priced. Hushed also doesn’t try to sell you anything extra. Because Hushed is an app, so we don’t sell phones, only phone numbers. You simply use your existing mobile device.
Hushed doesn’t charge for fancy add-ons like voicemail and call forwarding, we just provide them as features along with your number. There are no contracts or extra fees. Hushed provides numbers and plans to suit your specific needs. You’re in control of how much you want to spend, and how many extra numbers you add.
Do you want a number just for the dating scene? You can do that.
Thinking about adding a business line in a different different area code? Hushed has you covered.
