Download Sideline: Second Phone Number v12.3.1 for iPhone/iPad by Pinger, Inc. directly from Apple Appstore. This app version requires iOS 12+ to be able to install and run.
The app works great except for the fact that every time I try to make a personalized voicemail it plays back as a harsh loud static.
Why is my Sideline not opening up. I use it for business and I can’t get into the app.
The only problem is that the new update made the app super slow and hasn’t work the same since.
The app works reasonably well but there is actually a huge business drawback. There is no way to log in to the web and print out a verifiable call log. If you are ever called upon to prove a record of communications, you are out of luck. For example, if you are involved in a lawsuit, you can’t adequately prove you communicated with a client and when you did. I recently had to cancel a contract for cause when a client would not take my calls. The client insisted I never made any calls to them. This might not matter to most people, but if it ever does, you will be up the creek. Until this service provides web downloadable phone logs (and maintains them for a reasonable period of time) it can’t be relied on fully.
App used to work great when it was free. I used the number for my business line so when they started charging I was stuck with it since that’s the number All my customers have. Now the last couple weeks the app is glitchy and I can’t get it to open half the time. I can’t respond to my texts since I can’t open them and I am losing money because of this. If it’s not fixed in the next few days I’m gonna have to cancel
I have been using the app for several months. The $10 per month cost seems reasonable for all that it includes. I have never had any missed or dropped calls. The texting works very well also.The one complaint I have is that the caller ID does not come up with the persons name or number. It just says incoming Sideline call.I hope the developers can work on this and get it to function properly. PS. I received a response that the problem is with iOS 14.4. However, I now have iOS 15 and the problem persists
As stated in the title, I’ve been using Sideline for many many years for my business. I do love the basic features of the app, but it needs a serious overhaul. My squabbles are: many of my texts (I’m guessing it’s length related) come out as random symbols to some recipients, the interface has become seriously laggy, there’s no dark mode, and some additional features would be nice. The core issues I have with the app are speed and interface issues. Both could be considered minor, but all these problems have been persistent for a very very long time with no improvement or changes. Would be great to see this awesome app developed more thoroughly.
-Read reviews -Chatted with..someone, heard what I needed to hear, SOUNDED good -Bought Annual Membership -TOOK OVER 5 WEEKS JUST TO PORT MY # -NO REFUNDS FROM SIDELINE -DOES NOT WORK WITH iPAD EITHER-I was told it did -75% OF MY TEXTS SEND & RECEIVE TWICE -CALLER ID DOES NOT SHOW-SL CALLS GO TO CELL PHONE/PERDONAL VOICEMAIL-CANNOT CHANGE TEXT SIZE FROM ITTY-BITTY, its useless most the time, have to have SIRI dictate it, OH WAIT, THAT DOESNT WORK WITHIN THIS “FULL OF BULL” APP EITHER So, it was a horrible decision to come to SL. If this saves just ONE person from the brain damage it will cause, then it was worth the rant. For real, this service is NOT a deal! NOW, 1 YEAR LATER-STILL HAVE DOCUMENTED MILES OF “SUPPORT” EMAILS AND ZERO- Z E R O RESOLUTION AND JUST A COMPLETELY HORRIBLE YEAR OF MISSING APPT CALLS, LOSING CLIENTS CAUSE SL MADE ME LOOK LIKE SKIPPY THE PUNK WORST DECISION E V E R IN BUSINESS FOR ME!
I forgot my password, the messages they use to recover password won’t work and there is no one to contact. So I payed for a whole year and not able to use the app anymore. I’m stuck!!!
I do not appreciate being “forced” to give access to my contacts list. I wanted an app to do business only and keep my personal life from being involved. Now they REQUIRE access to my contacts and that stupid banner requesting it has become annoying. So I’ve canceled my subscription and told everyone I referred to do the same. We can take our business elsewhere. I don’t appreciate harassment. You don’t need access to my for a “better app experience”. My experience was fine as it was.
