View Full Version : Virtual Phone number

Shout me down if necessary...

I wanted to know if it's possible to get a virtual phone number for your mobile.

I'm basically looking to get a local phone number for my business, as I am never at home to take calls. I feel that a mobile number isn't professional when advertising.

If this isn't possible, then are there any alternative numbers or methods I can use?

Yes, that is possible, though you will incur the mobile call charges.

Use an 0870 number and divert calls to your mobile?

I have been with http://www.call-navigator.co.uk/ for years now.

Hi Mike, I have been looking at your service recently. I am very interested the only thing is it would be directed to a mobile.

What extra charges would apply if being directed to a UK mobile?

Hi Joe,

Taken from callcentrefree.co.uk FAQ section:

Can I forward calls to a mobile phone?

"Because this is a free service and the cost to route a call can be up to 21p per minute we are not able to directly forward calls to a mobile phone.

However you can easily work around this and enjoy all the benefits of our service as well. Simply route your 0844 number to your landline phone and then ask your land line supplier to route the call to a mobile number!

You can switch this service on and off to suit your working day. Also, this is the most cost effective way for you to divert calls to a mobile.

(Tip: If you divert your land line to your mobile, you must “divert all” for our product to work correctly)."
