I have three phones. Each one serves a role and purpose. Even though I have three phones, I only give out one telephone number. This is to allow for call management to be done through a smart forwarding service which in this case is Google Voice.
The first phone is an Ooma HD3 which is the home phone. I use this phone when I am doing something related to my home only. An example will be to order a pizza. This is also to allow the delivery driver to bypass my call management system and therefore, reduce any unforeseen instances where they might go to voicemail.
The second phone is an Apple iPhone SE. This phone uses Life Wireless as my service provider, and almost always rings when someone calls my Google Voice number. This will also mean unknown callers will ring this phone. The rationale of this is I could set the phone to silent when I don’t want to be bothered by unknown callers.
The third number phone is an Apple iPhone 12 Pro. This phone uses Visible as my service provider and rings only when contacts call me. In addition, I have the phone set up where an unknown caller calls my Visible number directly, the phone will not ring. This is useful as I don’t have to worry about being SPAMed on my Primary phone.
