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
Can I forward calls internationally?
Yes, you can forward calls to any telephone number which includes international destinations.
Some low cost non UK destinations (most landline numbers in mainland EU and the US) should be included to use with the free test credit that is automatically added to your account when you start, however if your call does not connect when testing then simply top up your account in order to pay for the international call forwarding leg of the call.
We suggest that non UK destinations use VoIP/SIP instead of a destination number. To do this simply enter your normal destination number when signing up for the free account, and then when you have access to the portal simply remove the number under the FORWARD CALLS TO section.
VoIP/SIP will allow your unlimited free inbound calls over the internet.
