How does Global Call Forwarding work?
It's simple. You must first set up an account with us. To set up an account, use the above link. You must select the city and area code of your local number, or virtual number, in UAE. Using the drop-down menu on the sign-up form (where it says "Select Your New Phone Number"), you select "UAE" and then "Dubai (+971 4)." You must then use the drop-down menu to enter your "ring to" number (your destination number) in the U.K.
Once your account has been set up, the virtual number is active. Your callers in the UAE dial your assigned virtual number in Dubai. When dialing the virtual number you have selected, the callers are automatically connected to your U.K. mobile number or U.K. landline number. You can divert your calls to any telephone number in the world when and as your circumstances require. You can customize your settings and route calls anywhere in the world – when, where, and how you want it.
How can I forward calls from my existing UAE phone number?
Forwarding calls from your existing UAE phone number, whether it is a fixed land line or a mobile phone, is simple. You simply forward calls from your existing phone number to the virtual phone number that you have purchased from us. When callers dial your existing phone number, calls will then forward to your virtual number - which, in turn, forwards to your destination (or "ring to") number in the U.K. There is NO delay in the call transfer. The fact that the call is being forwarded to the U.K. will be undetected by the person calling your number.
Manage "ring to" number online
You have complete control via online account management as to "where" your virtual number will ring. You can easily change your "ring to" number via the web, 24/7. You simply login your account and change the destination number to any other landline or mobile phone number - in real time.
Calls routed over the PSTN
Unless you specifically choose to route your calls to a VoIP or SIP address (which our system does allow), it is important to highlight that our service is an international call forwarding solution that routes calls over the public switched telephone network (PSTN). The PSTN is the network of the world's public circuit-switched telephone networks, which includes mobile as well as fixed line telephones. It is the world's collection of interconnected voice-oriented public telephone networks, both commercial and government owned.
Call forwarding services that route their traffic via VoIP can be subject to packet loss and therefore result in negative call quality. To the contrary, we will forward calls from your virtual number in Dubai to the U.K. over the PSTN (unless you have specifically chosen to route calls to a VoIP or SIP address).
Establish a business presence in Dubai
Setting up a virtual phone number in Dubai allows you to establish a business presence in Dubai - and UAE - without having a physical location. If your company has clients and prospective customers located in Dubai, our service will allow these clients to call you just as though they were making a local call as opposed to an international call. We can help your business grow faster. Furthermore, one of the benefits of having a local call forwarding number in Dubai is that the number is accessible from virtually any country, as opposed to toll free number in UAE (which would not be accessible from outside UAE).
Clients in Dubai more likely to call a local number
than dial direct to the United Kingdom
It’s a simple fact that clients in Dubai or elsewhere in UAE are more likely to dial a local number or, at least, a toll free telephone number as opposed to making an international call to the U.K. Having a local number in Dubai not only gives you the business presence in UAE, but it also indicates that you are serious about doing business.

What does the caller pay?
Your caller in Dubai is responsible for local charges assessed by their local telecom provider for dialing your virtual or local phone number. If your caller is calling from outside UAE, he/she will incur whatever charges their long distance provider assesses for making an international call to UAE.
If you opt for getting a UAE toll free number, the caller pays nothing since this call is toll free from anywhere in UAE.
What does the account holder pay?
As the account holder, you pay the rate of forwarding the call from your virtual phone number in Dubai to your "ring to" telephone number in the U.K. Your rate depends on the plan (i.e., Basic, Value, Power, Premium or Enterprise) that you select (see below). Your "ring to" number may be a fixed land line or a mobile phone, and you may change it to another number in the U.K. or anywhere else in the world via online account management.
Virtual numbers available in other countries, as well|
