I'm looking for an iPhone app/service that will make all outgoing phone calls originate from another phone number.

This way all calls that I place on my iPhone X will display this other phone number on the caller ID screen of the person I am calling so that I won't reveal my iPhone X phone number.

This is something that Google Voice used to do until June 1, 2018 (due to the Google Voice app no longer integrating with cell phone providers like it used to).

What apps or services will allow this to be done?

Beautiful people of Experts-Exchange,

I have an app built on ruby on rails running on a Linode server. The app has iOS and android versions available as code in Bitbucket for source control.

The app uses cloud hosting on cloudspace.com and rackspace.com.

When I send text from one end to another for 2 registered users; it gets delivered. But when I send pictures; there is an image failure with only placeholder shown in receiver.

Log shows

OpenSSL::SSL::SSLError (SSL_connect returned=1 errno=0 state=SSLv3 read server certificate B: certificate verify failed):
  app/controllers/api/v1/users_controller.rb:16:in `auth_cloud'

The bucket has a users_controller.rb which (on branch 'auth_cloud') in api_server/app/controllers/api/v1 that looks like -

def auth_cloud
    uri          =  URI 'https://identity.api.rackspacecloud.com/v2.0/tokens'
    data         = { 'auth' => { "RAX-KSKEY:apiKeyCredentials" => { 'username' => '***' , 'apiKey' => '***' }} }
    json_headers = {"Content-Type" => "application/json", "Accept" => "application/json"}
    http   = Net::HTTP.new uri.host, 443
    http.use_ssl = true
    res    = http.post uri.path, data.to_json, json_headers
    if res                                                                                               //This is line 16
