Get Started

Answer calls wherever you are

You don’t need any software or technology to use our numbers. If you simply need to a new number to forward calls either to a landline or mobile number – then we are the people to speak to.

This is a great solution for people who would like to advertise a local or national telephone number – but have it diverted to an existing number to answer at your home, office or when you’re on the move on your mobile.

It’s just like having a business line for your mobile – as your inbound calls will be able to follow you virtually anywhere!

Sometimes having a mobile number or using your home number as your business number – just doesn’t work out. It can leave you looking semi professional and put off potential new customers. A local or national number can really improve the feel of your business and also means you don’t have to expose your personal mobile number.

A lot of businesses also choose to set up lots of different numbers for multiple geographical areas to suggest a presence in other local towns – expanding their potential customer base instantly!

Quickly get a telephone number up and running with instant online activation, NO upfront costs, NO monthly charges, NO contract, NO card details needed, FREE trial credit and LOW call forwarding rates.

If you prefer to be in more control of your costs, why not add an UNLIMITED call forwarding bundle onto your new number. This will then cover all of your UK forwarded calls – either to your UK landline or UK mobile. If you get either a 01,02,03 or 0843 number then the unlimited bundle is just £10 per month, and if you have an 0800 number then the bundle costs just £20 per month. You can add your bundle onto your number via the online portal once you have activated your account.

Add VoIP/SIP users at £1 per month each and make calls outbound displaying your number as the outbound caller ID (CLI). VoIP/SIP users can receive calls free, distribute inbound calls between users and call each other FREE. You can find out more about this VoIP/SIP service here.
