FAQs 

How does it work? 

To direct the call to your phone we will use a DDI (direct dial inwards) which you will be provided with, once you have this you can contact your mobile provider and they will do the rest. 

What information do you take from callers? 

Again, this is entirely up to you, we will merely function as the messenger. Should you need a contact name and message, or a more detailed account of questions you require us to pass over. Once we are aware of what your preferences, we will only ever email you with the relevant information you have requested. 

Can you provide me with a telephone number that I can advertise on my website and other promotional material? 

Absolutely, you can have 01, 02, 03 and 08 virtual telephone numbers. Furthermore, the numbers are not restricted to your geographical location, if you work in the North of Manchester, you can still have a London Telephone number. 

How do I get my messages? 

Once you have received a call, we will send over an email detailing the caller ID, why they called and the time. If you’d prefer, we can also send you an SMS to inform you of this email. 
 
Opposingly, should you not want to be contacted immediately after-every call, we can organise a regular time or day that suits you best. This way you will be sent a list either in the form of an email or a spreadsheet attachment with the details of all of your calls/messages. 

Do I have to have my phones diverted all of the time? 

Definitely not! It’s down to your discretion, we just need enough notice so that we can organise it accordingly. We can provide telephone cover as and when you need it, if you provide us with the days and time that you are not available, we will provide the telephone cover for this time. 

How do virtual telephone numbers work? 

They are designed to suit you, in that they are virtual, and therefore do not require a landline to function. In any given situation, your virtual telephone number can divert incoming calls to any device, whether that be a mobile, home phone or office landline. With this in mind, if you only have a mobile, using a virtual phone number means that you can work from your personal handset to answer client calls.
