    Pros: 

    Easy to setup, great value, near perfect call + text quality

    Cons: 

    None yet

    I have been using OpenPhone for about 6 months and love it. Was one of the easiest apps to move from trial to paid.

    I run an e-commerce store in my spare time so I was looking for a way to get a number quick. Looked at Grasshopper but ultimately found OpenPhone.

    The game changer feature is the ability to seamlessly text or call people. Many of my clients will call while I am at work in a meeting. I can simply text them back which they think is cool, and then deal with it by either calling them back, or solving the issue right there.

    They are also constantly updating the app, so all of a sudden a feature you've been wondering if they do, the just add to the app. It's great.

    Highly recommend, @kentf on Twitter too if you have any other questions.

    Pros: 

    Great features, super smooth UI/UX

    Cons: 

    Can't think of any

    As probably one of the earliest users of OpenPhone since late 2017, I have to say their app is amazing. Not just the features it provides, but also how it works. It runs so smoothly it's rare to see in early stage startups.

Hi @adigold1, thanks a lot for hunting us. It's very exciting to finally launch what we've been working on here on Product Hunt. As you guys know, the concept of a service that gives small business owners a separate line on their existing device is not a new idea, in fact I've been a user of both Phone.com and Google Voice. What drew us to start yet another product in this space was the sheer amount of potential that other solutions have left on the table. At OpenPhone, giving you a second phone number for business is where we start. Ultimately, our goal is to be an integral part of how you as a business communicate and offer great experiences to your customers. There are a lot of technologies and proven communication practices that once integrated into your phone system, can save you time, help you earn more money and make your business look big and professional. I love to be more specific but our strategy for the next little while is to operate in stealth mode until we create a large enough gap with our competitors. We would be thrilled if you decided to join for the ride!

There’s already a couple apps like that. I used to use 2nd phone and now I am using line 2. Why should I use your service?
Daryna KulyaMaker@darynakulya · Co-Founder @ OpenPhone | Product Hunt TO
@peter_bauer Hey Peter! Thanks for checking us out! The vast majority of business owners still use a personal phone number for business which is both painful for them and limiting for their businesses. If you find that Line 2 works well for you and your business and solves that problem, that's great! What makes OpenPhone different currently is our simplicity and ease of use, dedicated business address book (so your customer information is separate from your personal contacts and you see your interactions with a customer in one place), and easy to understand pricing. We offer dedicated customer support right from the app so we're always there if you have an issue and we're releasing new features all the time based on customer feedback. This leads us to what will make OpenPhone different long term - we'll let you have more control over your business phone, allow for more ways to easily share responsibility for the phone with your team, and give you a full view of customer interactions. Let me know if you decide to give us a try, would love your feedback!

Congrats on the launch, @darynakulya & @mahyarraissi! 👏 What features are you planning on adding soon that'd make you stand out from the rest of the startups in this space?
Daryna KulyaMaker@darynakulya · Co-Founder @ OpenPhone | Product Hunt TO
@mahyarraissi @amrith Hey Amrith! Thank you! Great to share OpenPhone with the Product Hunt community. We're working on features that will allow you to have even more control over your business phone and creating ways to share responsibility for the phone with your team. Being able to team up on responding to customers is key and we're working on ways to make that easier for small businesses. We're constantly getting feedback on the product from our customers and incorporating it in what we build so if there's something you'd like to see in OpenPhone, let us know! :)

I've been using OpenPhone on Android since the launch and I've been loving it. Very smooth onboarding flow and they even helped me port an external number at no extra cost.

@francoismat Hey Francois! You were one of the first Android users - thanks for your feedback that helped us improve the app! What would you like us build next?

@darynakulya I'd like to stay on Do Not Disturb permanently 😂
Daryna KulyaMaker@darynakulya · Co-Founder @ OpenPhone | Product Hunt TO
@francoismat Done :) I'm not joking! We just pushed an update that allows you to permanently direct calls to voicemail. It's on Android and iOS now. Select "Phone Settings" right in the app and then "Send calls to voicemail"
