Verizon today announced the launch of a new "My Numbers" feature designed to let you add up to four additional numbers to a smartphone with unlimited calling and texting, for a total of five phone numbers connected to one device.

To add additional numbers to a Verizon account, customers will need to download the My Numbers app from the iOS App Store.

From there, Verizon users can choose the number to add from the available list, and it's ready to use alongside a device's primary phone number. This will allow customers to have one phone number for business and a separate phone number for personal use on one device.

With each number, there are separate voicemail and text messaging boxes in the My Numbers app to keep content from different numbers from getting mixed up.

According to Verizon, each number added to your smartphone will cost $15 per line per month.

Verizon's "My Phone" feature is similar to what Apple is doing with dual-SIM functionality in its latest iPhones, but it's not cross-carrier.

In the U.S., carriers (including Verizon) are not yet supporting the eSIM, which means the dual-SIM feature that allows for two phone numbers to be used at once is not yet available.

This is why eSIM needs to be adopted rather than individual carriers coming up with their own solutions. An iOS-integrated dual number system is a better option for consumers than an app from the carrier (this opinion is based on the quality of previous apps I've used from multiple carriers compared to the integration of carrier services into iOS).

I really need this feature right now. Spent half the morning looking at shady second line apps so I can firewall my main number from what I fear will be a marketing onslaught from a set of calls I need to make.

This is enough to make me consider switching to Verizon...
Nothing is worth switching to Verizon, lol.

I wonder if this is Verizon's way of thumbing their business nose at eSIM.

lol, I didn't think of that when I wrote it. I mean, you can create a throw away gmail account in order to get the Google Voice number. Would that help?
Silly human, thinking you can outsmart the Google. Google knows.

Seriously, though, I’d probably go with one of those shady VOIP apps before giving Google another vector to my data...

I did that wrong.

A phone can easily be left at school. A watch is on their wrist. Plus calling to be picked up or texting. GPS if their in trouble. I have one kids that’s autistic. That would have come in handy a few months ago. Thank god the sheriff found her first.
