Establish a business presence in the U.K.

Setting up a virtual number in the U.K. allows you to establish a business presence there without having a physical location.  Your business associates and clients in London (+44 203 or +44 208), Manchester (+44 1616 or +44 1617) Birmingham (+44 1213 and +44 1214) and other city locations can phone you by calling an in-country phone number. We can help your business grow faster.

Clients in the U.K. more likely to dial a local number

It’s a simple fact that clients in the U.K. are more likely to dial a local phone number than to make an international call.  Having the U.K. virtual number not only gives you the local presence, but it also indicates that you are serious about doing business.

Can the service be used to forward calls from a U.K. mobile phone to an international phone number?

Yes, absolutely. Forwarding calls from your existing phone number in the U.K. whether it is a mobile phone with BT, EE, O2, Vodafone, Three, Tesco Mobile, Virgin Mobile or other U.K. mobile provider is simple. You simply forward calls from your existing U.K. mobile number to the virtual phone number that you have purchased from us.  Our service, will in turn, serve as a bridge.

When callers dial your existing phone number, calls will then forward to your virtual number - which then forwards to your destination (or "ring to") number outside the U.K. There is NO delay in the call transfer. We can also mask the ringtone to ensure that the ringtone sounds like a U.K. ringtone.

The ability to forward calls from a UK mobile phone to any international number is an especially popular feature for our business travelers from the U.K. who wish to avoid roaming fees that would otherwise be assessed by their U.K. mobile provider.

What does the caller pay?

Your callers will assume whatever charges their local telecom provider assesses for dialing the U.K. virtual number. If your caller dials the U.K. virtual number from outside the country, he/she will incur whatever IDD charges their long distance provider assesses for making an international call to the U.K.

If you opt instead to get a U.K. 0800 toll free number, your callers will incur no charges. The call is free of charge anywhere in the U.K.

What does the account holder pay?

As the account holder, you pay the rate of forwarding the call from your U.K. number to your "ring to" telephone number wherever in the world you may be located. Your rate depends on the plan (i.e., Basic, Value, Power, Premium or Enterprise) that you select.
