Virtual Phone?



Not sure if this is in the right section, but does anyone know if i can obtain a (local) business number from BT but have it diverted to my home number or mobile? Basically this is so I can work at home without giving my home number out on the marketing materials. The business requires a local number also, as opposed to a 0800 etc..


Many thanks

Hi Kelly


BT Offer a service called Remote Call Forwarding. BT's Remote Call Forwarding (RCF) is a facility for transferring incoming calls to a different location. It is used when you has moved out of the exchange area do not wish to lose calls, or if the you wish to advertise a number from a certain area where you do not actually have a physical presence.


This is an expensive service, as you have a connection charge and rental of a number at the exchange, you would also incur some call charges. But you can other cheaper diversion features.


If you are interested in this service please contact us.


Kind Regards
