Do you own a small business?  Are you tired of your personal mobile phone number being displayed everywhere?  Do you wish you had a separate, inexpensive number for your business?  Well, enter an App called AT&T Virtual Receptionist from AT&T and RingCentral.
With AT&T Virtual Receptionist you will receive a toll-free 800 or 888 number that will actually ring to your iPhone.  The customer calling will hear a message while the call gets transferred to your iPhone.  If you don’t answer, a voicemail is left within the App (or you can choose to have the call forwarded to another number).  When you call your customer from within the App, your call shows up as your business phone number not your personal number even though you are using the iPhone – very nice!  You can also receive faxes (if you purchase a plan).
So what’s catch?  You get 60 free minutes a month and will get notified as you approach the limit.  After that, you can pick from one of several plans, (i.e., $5 for another 100 minutes).
I have a small business and have been using AT&T Virtual Receptionist for a week.  It works perfectly and after a very easy setup, I’ve been receiving calls and making calls to customers.  I will probably step up to a paid plan in the future but what a small price to pay to have a toll-free business number and to make my small business more professional.  Thanks, AT&T and RingCentral.
