Ratings and Reviews
Love this app
Hi I have been using Sideline for a couple years now. I Got this app to have a second number so I could run my business off of it and still have my personal line.
I wasn’t quite sure how I was going to like it but after the first month I was sold on it. I’ve had it for about two years now and have switched from a couple different phones as I have upgraded and I haven’t had any problems switching over.
Anytime that I have had a tiny issue they have responded within a few minutes and have fixed the problem a few minutes there after.
I have told many of my friends and coworkers about Sideline and they are using it also. I also noticed that I don’t get any spam calls on this number so somehow spam doesn’t recognize it which is a plus.
One thing about it that I don’t like is that when I’m filling out certain applications online such as bank accounts and have to leave a phone number, they don’t except this phone number they say it is a faulty number but that’s OK I’ve used this number for two years and couldn’t want anything more thank you sideline!!

Stuck with it
I gave 2 stars because I actually use it. But only because I have to. A few years ago I signed up when it was still free. Things were fine for a little while and then had to pay to keep it. Not long after that I started having the issues. But I paid and the number is on my business card. So I’m stuck. I’ve talked with multiple customer service reps regarding the issues. I’ve un-installed and re-installed it which caused me to lose 2 years of worth of data. But the problem stays the same. When I open the app, I have to wait at least 5 minutes (yes I have timed it) for it to un-freeze so I can use it. If I get annoyed and close it out to the re-open it, it’ll short out and close out on me anywhere from 5-20 times before it’ll finally pull up and then I wait another 5 minutes minimum for it to unfreeze. The only way to have it instantly work is by doing a soft reset on my phone. Then that first time of opening it usually goes faster until I close out of it, because once I close out of it and then re -open I’m starting over. I used to think it was just sideline but recently I downloaded a couple others and they do it too. Not anywhere near as bad but they do. But my cards have this number so I’m stuck. Unless anyone can recommend something. But I waste a TON of time waiting to be able to use it.

BAD BUSINESS MOVE!
This app was pretty decent, with a few dropped calls. Recently, the caller id quit working. It only says "sideline incoming call". Calls were also beginning to drop. I use this as a business line. On top of all that now they want to charge for an app, that's less than 80% functional, uses my cell data/wifi services I purchase from a provider. If that's the case I could purchase an additional line for $10. The way sideline broke the news to current app users was through an ad/text message. So if you missed it, oh well. I prefer to go with an app I know I have to pay for upfront vs. a text from a free app. This action reminds me of how Netflix treated their customers by quickly increasing their prices, if I'm not mistaken they are still trying to recover. I have also been reading where they are charging $20 to port your number out. Well I brought MY number to sideline, with that being said if I am charged to port MY number out, I will have to take further actions, because it was my number to begin with. This is one of those apps you have to read the fine print. Be cautious with this app.
Update: I decided to try it out. It was ok, not like it was but ok. Since this most recent update, the app crashes ALL the time! This is a business number. Meaning I get paid with my business!!!! If you charge for an app make sure it works! My business is just as important as this app!!
