What is Virtual Landline?

Virtual Landline is a cloud-based telephony service that allows you to divert your incoming calls to a phone number of your choice 

You can choose a Virtual Number from a selection of all available UK geographical numbers (01 and 02) or national numbers (03 and 0800)

What is a Virtual Number?

A virtual telephone number is a number that exists in 'the cloud' which isn’t physically linked to a fixed telephone line. Calls to this number can be diverted anywhere that suits your needs, normally your mobile but also any landline worldwide. 

It’s the perfect solution if you don’t want to publish personal mobile or landline numbers on your website and it adds a more professional feel to your business.

More about our Virtual Landline app

With the app, you will be able to make low-cost outbound calls, displaying the virtual number you have selected upon choosing a plan.

You can also redirect your incoming calls to the app. For more information on the app check our apps and devices page.

Is Virtual Landline for me?

The service is ideal for small businesses or start-ups that need a local or 0800 number.

SMEs and sole traders usually use this number as a single point of contact on their websites or business cards, as well as for localised advertising on Google, Bing, Yell and other offline and online advertising channels.

Virtual Landline is also appropriate for individual users, who want a UK landline number without being tied to a physical address, perfect if you are relocating and want to keep your old number.

Virtual Landline is a much cheaper solution if you want to cut the high costs of a fixed BT line and break the chains of the 12 month contracts.

  • "We use a VOIP phone instead of the free app and really can't tell the difference between our Virtual Landline and a real one, except the cost! When we're out the calls are sent to my mobile, and no one knows. Marvellous!"
