How to setup 2 or more iPlum numbers on same device?
Important: iPlum app holds one primary iPlum number but you can add and configure additional iPlum lines in primary account to receive their calls in same app by using Call Forwarding feature on those additional lines.
You will setup call forwarding from multiple iPlum lines to main iPlum number to receive all incoming calls in the same app. Call forwarding caller-id feature allows you to see on which iPlum number the call came in to distinguish between numbers. You can also route unanswered calls to that number’s voicemail greeting. If you need to use outbound calling in iPlum app showing each number separately you would either need to logout of one account & login to another or install them on different devices. It can be a phone or a tablet.
You can send & receive text for primary number in iPlum app. For your secondary numbers you can text online at iPlum portal https://my.iplum.com
Or you install iPlum app on a different phone or tablet.
Note: If you need live help or technical consulting for your advance setup, you can book a paid video call with our in-house specialists using this special link. They will walk you step by step.
Let's say you have already setup an iPlum phone number X. Now you want to purchase an additional iPlum number Y. The goal is to receive calls from both numbers on the same device.
You can repeat this process for any number of additional iPlum phone numbers on one device.
A. Setup Additional iPlum Number (Y).
Note: If you have already purchased additional iPlum number, you can skip this step.
