    Default Is there a texting / sms app that will keep my real ph# private?

    I'm looking to add a 2nd PRIVATE phone number from which I can send & receive txt mssgs.

    Doesnt have to be free android app but that is ideal.

    Anyone know of something like this?

    I already have a google voice acct; and done want a second account.

    Thanks.

    Google voice does exactly what you want. Am I missing something?

    I am already using a google voice account for another purpose. Are you saying I can set up TWO google voice accounts on this phone?

    If so, how. Thanks.

    You can have multiple Gmail accounts with hangout, but only one SMS account. As long as you are just using hangouts without the SMS your number would not be involved.

    It gives you a random number. For example: pretend your phone number is 123-456-7899, text plus will give you a random number such as 123-872-9164 and this number will be seen by who ever you text, but not your actually phone number

    Doesn't BBM do that - the other party doesn't get to know your phone number or email address unless you want them to?
