There’s already a couple apps like that. I used to use 2nd phone and now I am using line 2. Why should I use your service?

@peter_bauer Hey Peter! Thanks for checking us out! The vast majority of business owners still use a personal phone number for business which is both painful for them and limiting for their businesses. If you find that Line 2 works well for you and your business and solves that problem, that's great! What makes OpenPhone different currently is our simplicity and ease of use, dedicated business address book (so your customer information is separate from your personal contacts and you see your interactions with a customer in one place), and easy to understand pricing. We offer dedicated customer support right from the app so we're always there if you have an issue and we're releasing new features all the time based on customer feedback. This leads us to what will make OpenPhone different long term - we'll let you have more control over your business phone, allow for more ways to easily share responsibility for the phone with your team, and give you a full view of customer interactions. Let me know if you decide to give us a try, would love your feedback!

Congrats on the launch, @darynakulya & @mahyarraissi! πŸ‘ What features are you planning on adding soon that'd make you stand out from the rest of the startups in this space?

@mahyarraissi @amrith Hey Amrith! Thank you! Great to share OpenPhone with the Product Hunt community. We're working on features that will allow you to have even more control over your business phone and creating ways to share responsibility for the phone with your team. Being able to team up on responding to customers is key and we're working on ways to make that easier for small businesses. We're constantly getting feedback on the product from our customers and incorporating it in what we build so if there's something you'd like to see in OpenPhone, let us know! :)

I've been using OpenPhone on Android since the launch and I've been loving it. Very smooth onboarding flow and they even helped me port an external number at no extra cost.

@francoismat Hey Francois! You were one of the first Android users - thanks for your feedback that helped us improve the app! What would you like us build next?

@darynakulya I'd like to stay on Do Not Disturb permanently πŸ˜‚

@francoismat Done :) I'm not joking! We just pushed an update that allows you to permanently direct calls to voicemail. It's on Android and iOS now. Select "Phone Settings" right in the app and then "Send calls to voicemail"

Have seen a lot of work been put into this product and it shows. For those who are thinking this may be a look-alike, I suggest taking a deeper look. Maybe make the differences more apparent in the landing page. Great Job @darynakulya & @mahyarraissi !

@darynakulya @calvinleyon Thanks Calvin, we will definitely make that message more clear.

I've been using the OpenPhone app on iOS for a month or so now. It's so simple and easy to use and just gets the job done. Definitely worth looking at if you're fed up of using your personal number and constantly balancing business and personal contacts. Congrats OpenPhone team πŸŽ‰

@matthew_morley Thanks a lot, we are so happy we could help you out with that

I have been using OpenPhone for ~4 months now, love the simplicity of it. The key part for me is that it doesn't muddle my personal contacts in there; my customers that called me through that number are there in one place, separated out. Good luck to the team and thank you for making this!

@tehsin681 Thanks Tehsin! Glad you're enjoying the app - we try our best to keep things simple. :) What would you like to see us build next in the app?
Tehsin Bhayani
@indarynakulya - Intercom integration: Would love to match the callers to what we already know about them through Intercom, where there may be a deeper history of the conversation - HubSpot integration: Would love to get leads pushed automatically into Hubspot. - Enrichment on new callers: I have no idea how feasible this would be, but I am imagining a little bubble, showing a quick summary of who is calling. Would love to brainstorm more on this, so many exciting possibilities.

Loving it so far. Great design and support by the OpenPhone team!

Such a great, simple way to get a business phone number. I’ve been putting off doing this but met the OpenPhone founders recently. Got my new number in 30 seconds. Nice job, folks!

@kwindla thanks for the kind words πŸ™πŸΌ it was great meeting you yesterday!

Huge fan! As a mom/pop shop consultant, its a life saver to avoid giving out my personal phone number to everyone. The app is well designed, super easy to use and intuitive. Pricing is great for someone like me who might expand at some point.

Hi @adigold1, thanks a lot for hunting us. It's very exciting to finally launch what we've been working on here on Product Hunt. As you guys know, the concept of a service that gives small business owners a separate line on their existing device is not a new idea, in fact I've been a user of both Phone.com and Google Voice. What drew us to start yet another product in this space was the sheer amount of potential that other solutions have left on the table. At OpenPhone, giving you a second phone number for business is where we start. Ultimately, our goal is to be an integral part of how you as a business communicate and offer great experiences to your customers. There are a lot of technologies and proven communication practices that once integrated into your phone system, can save you time, help you earn more money and make your business look big and professional. I love to be more specific but our strategy for the next little while is to operate in stealth mode until we create a large enough gap with our competitors. We would be thrilled if you decided to join for the ride!

My company, Orchid, works with a ton of coaches and therapists who love Open Phone! It's an easy way for them to communicate and arrange their schedules with clients while keeping their personal life separate. The best products have a hyper-clear problem-oriented use-case and audience, Open Phone is one of the best examples of this. Excited to see them grow!
Dave Jarrick
Been using OpenPhone for a few months and have all kinds of great use cases that i can see from a business perspective. Also found some pretty good use cases around the house - for example - we set my daughter up her own OpenPhone line on an old iPhone 6s with no sim card and gave her a number. She feels like she has her own phone now (that works when she has wifi). Great job to Daryna and Mahyar. Well designed app in what feels like a neglected market but one with tremendous need

@davejarrick Thanks! Love that we serve both of those use cases πŸ™Œ

Looks epic.

Not often do you see such a well designed product, especially in this domain. Keeping the business and personal communications/contacts separate is super helpful!! Kudos to the OpenPhone team. Excited to see how the product evolves further.

You've priced yourself perfectly. I will be signing up. :)

I started using OpenPhone about a month ago. Setting up was easy and the response speed super fast. Obviously, it is a very convenient way to get and manage a business phone number.
