It provides a SIM-free virtual mobile number which users can use in situations where they are compelled to share their personal mobile number. All incoming calls to the Doosra number are either automatically blocked or sent to voicemail. Users can sign up on doosra website, select a plan and get a phone number of their choice for instant activation. All blocked calls, SMSes, OTPs and voicemail can be reviewed, and settings managed through the accompanying Doosra mobile app available on Android and iOS.
