Line2 gives you a second number on your smartphone that can text and make calls using Wifi or 3G. It’s cheap and may, for instance, be a good way to do personal calls on a business phone. I really wanted Line2 to work for me, and sometimes it did. But half the time the quality was atrocious. Since this is the second line, it’s not like you don’t have options. Speaking of options, there are other such services including Skype, which work better for me.
Best Part: Cheap, good UI
Needs Work: Call quality is inconsistent at best. Should try to transcribe voice mails like Google Voice and others do
