Since then, I’ve gotten an email invitation to go get my number.
The way Grand Central is supposed to be used is they give you a free phone number which you can use for the rest of your life. When anyone calls this number, it rings whatever phone you have it set to ring. This could be useful for people who move around a lot, people who use prepaid mobile and get new numbers often… There are all sorts of possibilities.
I used it for something else. I got a phone number that is local to the town where my mother lives. Now she or anyone from my hometown can call me toll-free. It works great, sounds like a regular call and is easy. The only time a computer is needed is to request the number and set it up to ring your mobile or landline. On my mom’s end, all she has to do is dial that local number.
Since my mobile doesn’t work in Europe, I buy prepaid cellular while there. I usually visit more than one country each time, so I find myself buying a lot of sim cards and having to forward the new phone numbers…long story short, I am within reach, but at what number?
I’ll have to see if this thing works internationally.
