RingMeMaybe from yourVirtualSIM enables anonymity and the context of the caller, with an unlimited amount of phone numbers on iPhone, iPad, and iPod.
September 06, 2013
We’ve all been in a situation where we didn’t want to share our real phone number - especially publicly - on online classified ad sites like Craigslist or eBay, a dating site, or with someone we just met.
Mobile telephony provider yourVirtualSIM Inc., based in San Francisco, has launched RingMeMaybe for iOS, an app to create, manage, and delete an unlimited amount of phone numbers for iPhone, iPad, or iPod. RingMeMaybe is the first mobile app to leverage yourVirtualSIM’s IP-based virtual telephony platform.
After downloading the app, it takes less than five seconds to generate a real phone number, according to the company. All calls to that number will then automatically be directed to your iOS device—even if the app is not open. You can then associate a tag or caller ID to each number so you know who’s calling you and why; for example “‘my job listing on Craigslist” or “my contact number on LinkedIn.”
RingMeMaybe is available for free on the Apple AppStore, with 20 credits—the equivalent of two new virtual phone numbers. All calls to these numbers are free for RingMeMaybe users. Virtual numbers expire after a week, but can be extended indefinitely by applying more credits. Users can buy more credits ($0.99/number/week) or earn them free by clicking on ads.
