Extra Line is a virtual phone number that you can forward to your cell so you can answer inbound calls, or you can forward it straight to voicemail. You can also make outbound calls that display the Extra Line number as the caller ID. While you can receive text messages which are left in your voicemail inbox, viewable online, you are not able send outbound text messages at this time. The Extra Line feature is available on the Professional plan.
To activate your Extra Line on the Android:
- Open the YouMail app
- Open the Menu (three lines) in the upper left corner.
- Click on the Settings
- Click on Phone Numbers
- Click the Three Dots in the upper right corner
- Click Virtual Number Settings
- Select Virtual Number Dialing
- Select either Android Dialer or In-App Only Dialer*
You can now start using your YouMail Extra Line!
*Note: this decision is best determined if you makes most of your calls through the Android Dialer or through the YouMail app*
