Juggling multiple phones can be a hassle, especially if you have to worry about managing different phone numbers on top of that. Fortunately, Verizon has a way to ease that pain: My Numbers.

If you’re a Verizon subscriber, you can now have up to five numbers assigned to a single smartphone, complete with calling and texting from each number. That’s three more than you could get with Google Voice, and it’s so much better than carrying multiple phones.

Small business owners may be into this so they don’t have to give out their personal phone number for work purposes, and avoid having to carry a completely separate phone. With this, they can have just one phone to carry around and be able to make calls and send messages from multiple numbers.

Another use case is if your business operates in different area codes. Calling from a local phone number may be less expensive for your clients, and may look better to those that want to support local businesses.

Each phone number you add casts an additional $15 per line per month. To get started, download the My Numbers app from the iOS App Store or Google Play Store.
