Landline, mobile ,VoIP

You can forward your calls to a landline, mobile or use VoIP

Above Example:

In this example, we have bought 0207 1234567 as a virtual number, we have then logged in and set the divert to number 0161 9876543. When a person phones the virtual number 0207 1234567, the calls are automatically diverted to 0161 9876543 without the caller knowing that the calls are being diverted. You can divert calls to landlines, mobile phones or use VoIP.

About UK Virtual Phone Numbers

Virtual Phone numbers offer people and businesses the ability to use virtual numbers in a variety of ways. Virtual numbers are essentially a call forwarding service that the caller is unaware of. So when someone calls your virtual number they have no idea that the call is being forwarded to another phone number. With this service you are able to give out your virtual number and route calls to your landlines, mobile phone or even by using VoIP.

You can also target clients by area or nationally, for example you could choose a local area number like 0207 London to target clients that want to call local businesses in the London area or you could choose a national UK number to create a big business impression for companies that don't have to be based locally to attract business. Alternatively you could simply get a personal number and route calls as you please.

You can login online anytime and change diverts anytime you please. You can also add call handling services such as: voicemail, fax to email, call hunting and a hosted virtual switchboard to your virtual number. We even have call plans to reduce your call rates should you expect large volumes of calls.
