Using a free US number in Nigeria is not something that is difficult to understand. By the time you are through reading this post, you will see that it is not rocket science.
Using a US phone number in Nigeria might sound suspicious because Nigeria has gotten a bad name due to the menace of Yahoo boys. But for the sake of the good people of Nigeria, we have decided to share this information and will not be responsible for any misuse.
There are many good reasons someone in Nigeria might want to use a US number. Maybe the person wants to verify their identity on websites that accept only US numbers but do not accept Nigerian numbers. For example, to become an Amazon affiliate, a US number is required for account verification, among other similar cases.
Another reason for using a US phone number in Nigeria is that you may not want to give your real phone number to people.
Yet another good reason is that when you use a US number in Nigeria to call or receive calls from family and friends in the USA, neither you nor they will be charged at international call rates.
The beautiful thing about using a US phone number in Nigeria is that your US phone number will be linked to your Nigerian phone number. Therefore, you can give out either of the two numbers, and when the US phone number is called, your Nigerian number (MTN, Airtel, Glo) will ring. Also, when you call somebody, what the person will see is a US number instead of a Nigerian number.
The importance of using a US number in Nigeria cannot be overemphasized.
There are many methods one can use to get and use US numbers in Nigeria, both paid and free. But the one I am going to show you is free and easy to set up.
Now, without wasting too much of your time, let me quickly take you through the steps to get a free US number in Nigeria. But before I go into the steps, there is a vital thing I would like you to know: You need an Android, iPhone, or iPad device with an internet connection.
