    LINE vs Google Voice opinions
    This alternative is disputed. LINE is still a legitimate alternative to Google Voice, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    It's not an VOIP/SMS/MMS service, it's a proprietary chat service that could be compared to Google Hangouts (but not Google Voice).

    Seems to be one of only two listings which are actually capable of placing calls and texts to real phones, although it's unclear whether it's possible to receive calls or texts.
