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


How do I change or add divert locations?

When you need to update the call forwarding destination for your virtual phone number, simply follow the instructions below-

Click to select your number

Here you can add multiple destination phone numbers as well as add VoIP users. Anyone listed here will be called when someone phones your virtual number.

Each virtual phone number on your account has its own destination group, however if you have multiple numbers and want them all to point to the same group then simply raise a support ticket and we can do this for you. This will mean that whenever you edit the destination numbers for any number then all the group destinations change, as they all point to the same group.
