  • Can't save contacts in app

    The app works fine for me, I mostly don't even mind having to pay for it because it's functional- except that it lacks one of the major things I want it to do. I use it as a separate number to deal with a whole separate part of my life; but the only way I can save numbers is to save them to my main contacts. I want to be able to have my sideline numbers in sideline only and to keep everything totally separate. Instead I have to guess who everyone is from text convo context because I can't add names to the conversations. If I found another app that did the sane things but let me have a contacts list I would jump ship instantly. Update, this still isn't a feature and I drove 40 min out of my way for no reason today because of a message that was delivered 2 hours late. So glad I'm paying for this app now. I'm counting the days til a competitor comes up with a working version of this so I can switch.
  • Nice app

    Great and has many good features. Nice design, minimal and clean. Just that I wish they had a cheaper live tier. I don’t use it too often. I’d rather have a $5 plan wit fewer mins and messages. And the current plan for those who need to call and text more on their service.

  • Not a reliable 2nd phone as the first—deceptive advertising

    I purchased the Sideline app on 30 July 2016 to have a second number, besides business and personal, to give out to people who I didn’t want to give me a personal number to yet. Had no issues when come September 2017 they informed users they had to subscribe in order to use it for $70 a the year. I had liked it so far and figured, “what the hell“. The first six months I have the app, I got received voice messages from an automated system through a prison looking to reach someone. After sharing the app with others they mentioned that it was a burner number. On 16 October 2017, I purchased a VPN app to protect the privacy and security of my devices. Beginning sometime around the second quarter of this year, the app started not sending messages. Troubleshooting led to the fact that it wouldn’t send messages many times when the VPN was on, as well as phone service did not work at all. Even with the VPN off, a couple times it still made me retry sending the text I was attempting to send on WiFi. With it happening more and more on the VPN, and the fact that I attempted to use the phone number as a contact for GOOGLE I was not allowed, I have chosen not to re-subscribe to this app which ends on the 14 September 2018. Me not being able to use as a contact number for things, tells me that people were correct in the fact that this is a burner number. In contacting the company sharing about not being able to use as contacts with some companies, never addressed in responses back, as well as that they are jeopardizing my privacy and security to being told that they do care about customers privacy and security but don’t allow VPNs for the reasons they gave. When responded that it is an oxymoron statement, to be told again the reasons they don’t allow and they do care about customers privacy and security. There is ABSOLUTELY NO reason any app or someone needs someone’s private IPN, unless they are using for it mischievous reason. While great to have another number, the fact that some companies don’t accept to be used as a phone number, and that in order to use one must jeopardize their privacy and security it is not worth it any more. If the app was free, it would be one thing. Charging $70/year for a number that can’t be give for contact to many, and forcing me to release private information unnecessary for running an app it is not worth the cost when my privacy and security are at risk. EDIT: Forgot to point out that while I had to turn off the VPN to sent or call, never had an issue with texts or calls coming in.
  • Terrible

    I thought this app was going to be great. Until i found out that i have no access to the numbers that call me. I tried to call back a customer and give them the information they asked for and couldn’t because it was some made up number by the sideline app... i then went on to try and get the number by chatting live with the management and they pretty much got me no where.... 8 hrs later and i still don’t know how to contact a customer and could have possibly lost money. I will be deleting this app ASAP!! Very disappointed.
  • I use this for work

    By KaoriMommy
    I use sideline for work and have been doing so for over a year now. The call quality was great when it started but now that I am actually paying for the service, the call quality isn’t as good. It is hard for people to hear me clearly on sideline and I end up just hanging up and calling them directly from my normal phone number. I really wish someone can fix this issue.
  • Changed back to 4 Stars

    You can turn off the notifications so Your phone doesn’t ring. New issue: for some reason when I try to make calls sometimes the phone never starts ringing. And then after like 1 minute a message comes on telling me that in order to keep my phone number private I need to call through the app... which I’m already doing. Please fix that. I need to be able to make calls.

  • Lots of glitches

    I set up a voicemail greeting on sideline for my second business. When I get calls, the primary voicemail on my iPhone answers not the one I set up on sideline. This is bad because they are two separate businesses so the voicemail greetings need to be totally different. In addition I have tried a couple of test calls to myself from another phone and the phone with sideline on it doesn’t even ring and the wrong voicemail greeting answers!! Good thing I’m in the 7 day trial. I may have to cancel. Lastly, it is causing my main line to not ring when I get a call! It goes straight to VM each time. Lots of glitches here!
