To setup a SwitchUp account and start your free trial, first go to the Apple App store and download the SwitchUp app.
Launch the app after it's done downloading and sign in with either your Apple ID or Google account.
Signing in with your Apple ID or Google account keeps all of your conversations and preferences sync'd. Should you ever restore your phone or get a replacement, your conversation history is all backed up to the cloud.
- You must sign-in with either an Apple ID or Google account for SwitchUp to function.
Next, you will enter the area code you want your SwitchUp second number (SwitchLine) to start with. If no numbers are available in that area code, as is the case with older area codes, the app will suggest some other area codes near by. You can choose to continue with the suggested number or tap "Search More" below to perform an advanced search for the perfect number.
Tap continue to link your mobile phone to your account and your SwitchLine.

After entering your mobile phone, SwitchUp will send a Two-factor Authentication (2FA) SMS to ensure that you are the owner of the device and the account signup process is not fraudulent.
You should receive the 2FA code in a few seconds. Enter the 6-digit code to complete the account registration process.
Next, you'll need to grant SwitchUp permission for Notifications and Contacts.
