I found this via Google. It literally has a landing page for expats, and the website says "it gives you a second number for work in your existing smartphone"; "moving to, it living in Europe?", "Available in France, Germany..." "Great!" I thought, and downloaded the app. The app only works with UK phone numbers (if I had a UK number, I wouldn't pay this amount for a second number). So it gets uninstalled within 10 minutes

Hi Terri, just to clarify that the Thumbtel website Another Number for Expats mentions "Easy to use App for iPhone on any mobile network" and it only provides links to the Apple AppStore to download. The 'Expat' service is currently not available for Android. Best regards.

Tried another number after my work phone packed in and I didn't want to buy another or upgrade to dual sim, and it's been great! Ported my business number over quickly and easily, and it works perfectly for calls and texts, and is actually cheaper than what I was paying for a second sim plan.

I installed and paid for a subscription, but was unable to make any calls or send any messages. After contacting the developer (they were very helpful, although unable to fix the problem) they did refund my subscription.
