Testimonials

Sarah Bailey – Absolutely excellent service and support

Absolutely excellent service. I would recommend this company to anyone who needs a virtual phone number. They even went the extra mile in spending hours helping me to set up my VoIP phone to configure it to receive and make calls, and were happy to answer any queries I had. Absolutely fantastic support cannot recommend enough. Well done guys!

Ian – Easy and very quick to set up

Easy and very quick to set up. Loved that there are no upfront or recurring costs so a low risk option for start-ups with flexible options.

Skyfpv – The very best and the cheapest !

The very best and the cheapest !
After endless searching of considerably more expensive companies I came across “The Number People”.
Their system exactly fills my requirements in every way from costs to an amazing memorable number that was free.
Telephone customer care is also second to none

FAQs

Is there a usage policy?

Number People have a usage policy in place, which helps us to maintain our low cost, high quality service delivery.

Firstly, you will need to test the service using the free test credit within the first 30 days by making a test call to your new virtual phone number, and making sure that the call connects. If you do not make a test call to the phone number within this initial 30 day period then the number will be automatically removed from your account.

Additionally, our usage policy means that if your telephone number is not topped up within a 180 day period, or if during any 180 day period your telephone number does not receive any connected call traffic, then we will deem this number to be inactive and remove the telephone number from the account.

If there is no usage on the virtual number then we email you a reminder after 90/120 and 150 days, and if after 6 months there is still no usage then we will automatically remove the number from the account.

As long as your telephone number receives activity in the first 30 days and then within any given 180 day period then our systems will deem it to be active.  Activity is defined as either a top-up or connected calls to the number concerned.

TIP – If you want to keep your number but do not expect any call traffic yet then simply call your virtual phone number at least every 90 days, and make sure that the call is answered and the cycle will restart.

More information on our policies can be found in our terms and conditions which are available from the links at the footer of our website.
