Line2 iPhone App: Adding A Second Phone Number To Your iPhone

Back in January, during the CES2010, we talked about the Line2 iPhone app –  a virtual service that adds a second phone number to your iPhone. The app is available in the app store for $0.99 and the service is $14.95 after a free 30-day trial. There’s no long-term contract.

The services competes with Google Voice and it is most appealing to business users because of it’s enterprise-level virtual PBX..The Line2 app can provide a local number, an 800-number, or you can transfer an existing number. It offers unlimited calls in the U.S. and Canada and cheap international rates. One thing that Google Voice offers and Line2 doesn’t is SMS.

It has an easy-to-understand UI, visual voicemail, and a powerful contact management system that integrates nicely with Address Book. The main attraction of this app is the  online PBX system. Configured through the browser, it offers a host of advanced call-routing features like call screening, auto attendant, do not disturb, conferencing, and after hours call handling.
