Typical Usage Scenario:
Let’s say you are selling some furniture on Craigslist. You want to post your phone number, but you’d rather not keep getting calls for weeks after you sold your couches. So, you set up a temporary phone number here at NotMyNumber and tell it to forward to your home or mobile phone for one week.
You post your new temporary phone number and every phone call that comes in on that number gets forwarded to your home or mobile. After the week is up, hopefully you sold your couch, and you won’t get any more calls on that number.
Using the windows phone app you can place outbound calls and send sms messages to people and it will show as though the call came from your temporary number!!!
Pretty cool concept and the pricing seems reasonable for the privilege of not giving out your number.
