  • Good for business, but know this

    By BlueGableInc
    We use Sideline to take calls for a 2nd smaller business that we operate. It generally integrates well with our contact list, identifies callers if in our contacts (as opposed to Google Voice which does not) and texts smoothly as expected. Voice message to text conversion is reasonably accurate as well. However, there are 2 drawbacks that we have found to be issues for our business use: 1) When sending pictures via text, the photo library is limited to just a few recent pictures. If you have pictures that are older, perhaps 2-3 weeks prior to your attempted message, you may not be able to select them to send. There is a work-around that we found by taking screenshots of those pictures in order to make them more current and available to choose from. Just causes us extra time to perform. 2) We recently needed to print a text conversation that had transpired over 2 months time. We found that there is no option to print texts from Sideline at this time. We tried a couple of different apps for printing texts, but could not find one that made the SMS texts specifically from Sideline available. Apparently this has been requested by many users for over a year, but there has been no development for this need or even a reasonable response from the Sideline developers. If you need to print texts for business use (ie - reimbursement or legal needs), this may not be the app to use. Other than these 2 functionality issues, we have found Sideline to be a useful tool for our 2nd business.
  • Adult Spam Being received

    By Leah H.
    While I have enjoyed this app to assist me in my out of state presence, I have recently began receiving Spam emails stating that my invoice can’t be paid due to a credit card issue (even though my payments are going through) and then more recently I have received adult Spam text messages in the middle of the night. I am not sure if this is as a result of my information being sold or something else but this is unwanted. Hopefully this is something that can be prevented going forward or I will unfortunately cancel my subscription.
  • It’s good buuuttttt

    By Belle7019
    Love the app & idea however if you don’t answer a sideline call the voicemail blurts out your REAL number 😡
  • Bad billing practices

    By Hood2AllGood
    The service works great; however, please be cognizant of the way they bill. They automatically deducted they monthly bill out of my account twice in two weeks. Furthermore I can’t get anyone to tell me why this happened and or reimburse me. Bad business practices ..
  • Starting out

  • Great app but not stable nor reliable

    By Habashy9
    App always crashs and take my calls to VM without ringing. Its a good app and i think the idea is great but you guys need to work on bug fixes and easier user interface! About to unsubscribe soon if it stays like that.

  • Excellent App!

    By rwcrwfrd54
    I switch my home landline to Sideline almost a year ago and have had no issues what-so-ever. Voice mail is excellent and voice to text is perfect, unlike the voice to text on my regular iPhone number. Highly recommend this App!
  • Love the line but needs more features

    By Rabbi Scott
    I have used the line for over a year and the one improvement that I would suggest is the you could do a search of words and numbers to find info or to allow you to recall a persons info. Without having to look thru individual contacts to find info.
