The perks of porting.

Porting your phone number

Have you ever wished you could return customer’s calls and text messages from your cell phone without sharing your personal number? With Ruby’s Choose Your Caller ID feature, you don’t need a second device or a VoIP service with spotty quality to do just that. By porting your business number to Ruby, having a business and personal number all in one device is finally possible (and super easy)!

When we host your business number, you can make calls and text from your business number on your cell phone through Ruby’s app (available for iPhone and Android). When you dial out or send a message with this feature, your contacts will see your business number and your cell phone number will stay private.

For small business owners, there is often little to no divide between work and personal life. With a Ruby-hosted number, you get to maintain a little separation in keeping your personal number private and driving call traffic to your company’s business line. Even when you’re out and about, calling from the app lets you maintain your professional presence from wherever you are. No need to be tied to in-office phone equipment or a second business-only cell phone. All you need to run your business is your personal device and the Ruby app!

In addition to the Choose Your Caller ID feature, having a Ruby-hosted business number empowers you to turn your Ruby service on and off with a single tap in the Ruby app. Forward and unforward your calls to align with the rhythm of your daily schedule, or quickly activate your receptionist service to accommodate life’s surprises.
