Pocket landline numbers

With a pocket landline number your business can have a fixed phone line number – but have the flexibility of answering the call whilst you’re out and about, ensuring that no important calls are missed.

Get Started

A pocket landline number is also known as a call forwarding number or a virtual landline number. It is a process where you can activate a FREE cloud based landline telephone number and route it to your mobile phone, landline or international number.

Number people offer a wide range of pocket landline numbers for the UK, so you can have a phone number for any UK area code – which is vital for any small business as customers prefer to call landline numbers which are local as it increases credibility.

A pocket landline number is also a great way of expanding your business into new areas, without the cost and risk of taking on new premises and staff, just order a FREE pocket landline number for that STD area code and forward it directly to your mobile.

You can even make outbound calls using your new Number People number as your outbound caller ID. This is done by adding a VoIP/SIP extension to your number, which will then also allow you to receive calls for free. You can find out more about this outbound calling service here.
