But this is for temporary phone number. It is true. You can have disposable phone number; share it with others when you need still keep your number hidden from the crowd.
The temporary phone number will forward your phones on your real number as long as you want. You can keep it on or off.

How it works for you?
You have a classic jeans and put it n eBay sell. You want to give your contact number so people can contact you. But you do not want to get calls weeks after you sold your jeans pant. You can create a temporary or disposable phone number and forward it for one week on your real number. So if you have one disposable number people will call you on that number and the call will be forwarded to your number. And then you have sold your jeans turn of your temporary number.
You can use your temporary phone number to make phone calls.
And a temporary number will expire when you want to expire it.
To work for you, you need a phone number that you own. If you have a mobile number it will work best.
