How to get a Virtual Phone Number for SMS

What to do if the site requires your cell phone number for verification to apply for website services or to register as a member? This verification process is found on many popular resources.

SMS verification is one of the ways to confirm your identity by receiving an SMS with a verification code. But what if you don’t want to give out your personal cell phone number? So you can get the verification code to a virtual number through the online service.

In this article, we’ll talk about virtual phone numbers and how to use SMS verification service to bypass phone number verification for any website or application.

What is the difference between a virtual number and a personal cell phone number?

Virtual numbers are a type of phone number that can be used to receive calls, texts and faxes without the need for a physical device. Virtual numbers are also known as virtual PBX lines or virtual business numbers.

Physical SIM card: a personal cell phone number, regardless of the service provider, basically has a physical SIM-card. Even the current ESIM laid down requires a physical card. 

A virtual number is basically similar to ESIM, except that a virtual number has no physical SIM card at all.

Benefits of the virtual phone number 

  • Worldwide Availability: Virtual phone numbers are available worldwide. You can get a virtual phone number of any country being anywhere in the world. All you need is an Internet connection
  • Inexpensive to use: thanks to VoIP telephony the cost of such a number is much lower than the cost of a physical sim card. 
  • Mass account registration: many applications require a cell phone number to register. With virtual numbers, you can register as many accounts as you want. Registering accounts with virtual numbers in social networks, messengers and other applications is very easy.
  • Remain anonymous: with a virtual phone number, you can keep your private information safe. You can use it to get rid of unwanted calls and texts or to create a professional brand without having to give out your personal number.
