This is probably not an issue with the app, so I changed my review to 3 stars instead of 2. So I wanted to use it as a second number to give people I don’t want to deal with. Twitter demanded I have my phone number on file but there’s no way in hell im giving my cell phone number out to them. So I tried burner. I’d figure it’s worth $5 a month , a very reasonable price btw. Anyway, I’m not sure how but Twitter knew the number wasn’t my actual number. It said something along the lines of “invalid phone number”. How do they know? I tried another one. Same result. So, I still don’t have Twitter because , frankly, I don’t want my real phone number stored on their servers. I can live without twitter. It’s ridiculous that they require a phone number anyway. No wonder they’re going under. Aside from that, Burner does what it says. Anytime I sell something on Craigslist, etc, I use a burner number.
Really buggy app, many missed calls and text messages, not suitable for professional use. I work in a hospital and missed so many calls and messages. Wish I had used the trial instead of paying for the full year. I want my money back!
When I download this app for Craigslist, so many calls coming from unclear numbers and try to do scam & fraud to my account. This app can’t even delete or filter the scammer number. I don’t like this, it’s useless.
I’m waiting for almost an hour for my code to verify my account.. Not a good way to start off
So I got the 3 number subscription. One number started getting calls immediately. One guy said is this the bank. Uhmm sure, give me you account number (kidding). I look up the number I got and it’s listed as an ”Personal Loan Scam” on Nomorobo (Whom they partner with). What give Burner? This is unacceptable. -update. I guess they cannot tell who had the number last. I just went in and burned the old number and requested another and seeing the choices, googled the one I was interested in, made sure it was clean, and created it. We’ll see how it works. However, how do you delete a background? You can select a background, but once created, how to remove it...?
I downloaded this app because I wanted to reroute scam phone calls to this number, but then I saw that it costs $5.00 a month. I deleted the number and the app like it said to if I wanted to cancel, and I also sent an email to the listed email to cancel the account. I got an automated response and then an email saying that the account was no longer active. Still don’t know if I’m going to be charged or not. I’m irritated.
I absolutely love this app, I don’t know what I would do without it or how I would run my business. BUT. The Voicemail feature is absolutely atrocious. If I press play, then press the speaker button, it will play perfectly fine over my speaker. If while it’s playing I turn the speaker option off, click pause, then play again.. it will have an aneurism and start playing the voicemail over itself 2 or 3 times. I have tried everything to fix this so clearly it’s something on the developers end. Other than that it’s amazing!
Lots of messages fail to come through or go out. “I was messaging you and never heard back.”
I’ve been very pleased with this app. It works as advertised. I regularly use it so I don’t have to give out my real number on sites like craigslist. The service isn’t free, but I would not expect it to be. I like how it gives me the option to get rid of a temp number right after use, or keep it for as long as I may choose to. I can also have multiple lines active at once. The only issue I have had has nothing to do with the developers. Some of the numbers it activates receive an excessive amount of spam callers. This is annoying at times but that is a risk you will always run into when getting a new phone number, as it has most likely been used by someone else before.
