How many numbers can I have ?


There is no limitation.

You can have one phone number or tens of thousands of phone numbers – in one or many different countries.

It’s up to you.



What does it cost?


The easiest way to find out is to look in our price list. But here are the general principles.

The following charges apply to all phone numbers:


Monthly fee

All phone numbers have a monthly fee (from $1.49).

You can reduce the monthly cost with up to 55% by opting for a longer subscription.


Call forwarding cost

If you forward the incoming call to a mobile phone number or other number there is always a call forwarding cost – usually at the cost of a local call.

If you have Premium – call forwarding is free in many countries.

 

The following charges apply to only a few numbers:

  • One time set-up fee
  • Some more expensive numbers and “Gold numbers” (easy-to-remember numbers) come with a one time set-up fee.
  • Per minute fee for incoming calls.
  • Toll free numbers and a few others – such as numbers in China, Alaska and Hawaii – have an additional per minute fee for incoming calls.



What is the cost of forwarding calls?


The cost of forwarding calls is exactly the same as the cost of making calls.

As an example: If you get an incoming call to a US number and forward it to a mobile number in India – the cost of the call forwarding to India is exactly the same as the cost of making a call to India.


How can I answer incoming calls?

You can answer calls with your mobile phone. No app nor software is needed since incoming calls are forwarded to your regular mobile phone number.

Here are the different ways available for answering incoming calls to your numbers.

Forward calls to your regular phone

The standard approach is to forward incoming calls to a phone number anywhere worldwide (mobile or landline) at the cost of a local call.
    
Answer with Voice response
    
If you want to sound more professional, you can instead connect the incoming call to a Voice response service (“For sales press 1”) which thereafter can forward the call onward to you or someone else in your team – or take a message.
    
Answer with IP telephony
    
You can also answer incoming calls with a standard IP-telephony phone. This includes software apps that can be installed in laptops and mobiles, as well as office phones that you can have on your desk.
    
You can also (if you are really, really techie) forward incoming calls to a so called SIP-addresses.
    
Have multiple phones ring at the same time
    
If you enter multiple phone numbers for call forwarding (your mobile and your home landline etc.) in your personal settings, while perhaps also having multiple IP-telephony phones connected to the service – then they will all ring at the same time when  there is a call for you, giving you the opportunity to pick up the call with any of the phones.
