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

Re: Virtual Phone?

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

Re: Virtual Phone?

Going to write a full an honest reply, just so people have something to work with. I personally travel a lot, for the majority of my work in other countries that I travel to I need SMS sending/phone transferring services because of the way my business works. For quite a while I was a loyal user to Phoenix. I did, however, have a few problems here and there. After consulting with the coworkers in my business I was recommended to try After trying this product for a good and solid couple of months I came to realize that this service is just what I needed to transfer incoming calls to my employees who are in a different country. Just so you know it's a free business phone system, all you have to buy is a virtual phone number. Now, I am a much more loyal user to "sendmycall" as what they provide saves a lot of time in my work, I can now give my customers a simple, convenient way to reach me.
