For example, your business can set up a virtual phone number and have the calls forwarded to your main office line or other locations. This can help your business better manage call flows while expanding your global presence.

How Does a Virtual Number Work?

Virtual numbers work using VoIP and cloud telephony technologies. When people call your virtual number, incoming calls can be forwarded to:

  • An application on your agents’ mobile phones or computers.
  • Multiple devices according to preset rules.
  • Directly through the PSTN to mobile phones and landlines.

We use the highest-quality termination and routes to provide outstanding call quality and better value over time.

F A Q | Virtual Phone Numbers

A virtual phone number is a telephone number that is not tied to a specific phone or location. It enables you to receive calls and route calls to another phone number at your convenience.

A virtual number works similarly to a normal phone number. However, the call connection is routed over the internet using VoIP technology. When a virtual phone number is purchased, you can assign a destination number to it. This number is where calls are routed automatically. Using the "Outbound Calling" feature allows you to make calls using your virtual number, so this number appears on the receiver's caller ID.

If you want to buy virtual phone numbers, the process quite easy. All you have to do is go to our pricing page, select the number you would like to purchase, and enter your destination number where calls will be routed to. Then just complete the checkout process and verification and you're all set! In many cases numbers are quickly provisioned and available to use in the same business day.
