2.Keep your number even if  you relocate. Whether it’s the growth of your team or a change of location, you’ll always be reached on the same phone number.

3.No physical landline rental needed. Don’t spend landline rental (usually $35) on a physical phone line. Save money and don’t be tied down by a physical landline.
