    Question "specific phone number for this app"

    I'm now translating the description of a new app into English.

    What do you think of the expression, "Request a specific phone number for this app"?

    (The VOIP app assigns a special phone number to each user in the first starting up.)

    I'm wondering whether "specific" sounds natural or not here.

    Also, if you know the better way to express the same meaning, please tell me.

    Thank you in advance.

    How about dedicated number?

    Re: "specific phone number for this app"

    Thank you, Tod!

    I misunderstood that your suggestion was "designated" but "dedicated"!

    Yes, that's it!
    I'll put "dedicated" in the translation document.

    Thanks, again!
