No extra SIM slot? Use up to six phone numbers on your iPhone or Android with Flyp
Android users are blessed with many excellent dual- and even triple-SIM phones, which are immensely popular throughout Asia, and are rising in market share in the developed world, too. Apple? Well, we are still to dream about a dual SIM handset from it, so what can you do if you have an iPhone, or a single-SIM Android, but want to use more than one phone number from the same phone?

A Flyp app comes to the rescue, allowing your phone to manage multiple phone numbers, dial and get calls, or send and receive texts from them individually on the same handset, and even record separate voicemail messages for each number. The catch? Each additional number is $2.99 per month, or $29.99 for a year. For that price, you can set one for friends and family, and one for work, for instance, choose separate area codes for each, if you so desire, import individual sets of contacts, and so on. 

Flyp promises call quality equal to your current number for each identity, and its added value in terms of communication management is that all calls, texts and even voicemails done through each number, are presented in a common uninterrupted thread, so you don't have to switch between apps for calling and apps for texting.

Dual SIM? Area codes??? Sometimes I think I live in a third world country, sometimes I think it's the other way around. When most of all the people I know have been running on flat rates for a few years now and most of them have migrated to unlimited talk time packs (all 3 operators in Portugal will sell you that for 10€/month) I wonder what's the use of dual SIMs and how long will it take for other countries to follow... Area codes??? There's almost none of that left here, since cell phones arrived. And these guys come along and they have enough clients to justify asking 3$/month for that shaite??? What's the use? Why would you want multiple phone numbers in your phone? What is the benefit over having different profile groups for contacts?

I have a feeling you don't really know what area codes are and their uses.

A North American carrier needs to allow one sim for multiple phones, not this(the other way around). Whichever carrier that does this will get all the owners of multiple phones provided call quality, data speeds, and price are similar to the best. I would leave my carrier instantly if another offered this.

We need to have an app that manages multiple phone numbers that we ALREADY have from our carriers. Not provide us new numbers. I would love for my work phone to manage my work+personal number while I'm at work and then when I get home my personal phone can manage my personal+work number while my work phone is off.

Google Voice/Hangouts does the same thing for free. Why do I need this?
