How to divert landline calls to a mobile

on Wednesday, 26 April 2017. Posted in Industry News

Diverting a landline number to a mobile is a simple straight-forward solution with our service. It allows you to make the most of your incoming calls and keep your business and personal phone numbers separate.

As a start, you need to sign up for a Virtual Landline number (or port an existing number), then type the number where the call will be diverted to.

The person who is calling you dials the UK landline number you have chosen, but the call is put through your mobile. This gives you a professional presence and complete control over the calls.

Call Diversion to Mobile Number

The advantage of diverting landline calls to a mobile number is to ensure that when a customer calls, you are there to receive this important for the business call. Having a UK Landline number also offers a level of professionalism but without the need to be tied to the office. You can easily divert calls to mobile or landline numbers, choose on what device to take the incoming calls, place the caller on hold or transfer them to voicemail and more. 

Get All Your Diverted Landline Calls to Follow You

By using a combination of our free app and option to add up to five divert numbers, you can make sure that anyone trying to call you has the best chance of reaching you in the UK or overseas. 

The Virtual Landline app will work anywhere with access to the internet, either via 4G/3G or Wi-Fi. If you are not certain about the 4G/3G coverage in the area, you can always set up the Follow Me service (adding up to five divert numbers) to ring all your other possible numbers to try and track you down. 

If this fails our voicemail service will forward any messages to your chosen email address, so there is no chance of callers slipping through the net. Many of our customers set up numbers in the UK that divert calls overseas, where the app works just the same, and there are over 50 destinations worldwide where you can use your inclusive minutes for diverted calls.
