You can have your own telephone number in many countries, so your friends and colleagues can make
very cheap calls to you using their local country number and your incoming
calls will be free of charge!
You have to proceed to DID (Virtual Number) page and choose a country to which your telephone number will belong. Then you just need to choose a city in the list shown and pay for the number.
- International and long distance telephone calls are made with the caller only paying local call rates. You colleagues and clients can dial local numbers, like you or your office are situated in their city. So why spend money arranging the office, if you can just buy a local number in a place, where you have business interests.
Moreover, if you are moving anywhere - to another office, city or even country, you can keep all your numbers.
- You can customize various call forwarding options from virtual numbers (DIDs) for your convenience and flexibility.
For instance, you don't have any employees at the office on Saturday, however there's an employee who can answer calls from his home or mobile phone. So all you need is just to setup call forwarding to his number(s). Or you can have one number in many remoted offices - if there's nobody to answer in one office, call is forwarded to another. (See below for detailed forwarding examples).
- Finally, there are many additional uses for local numbers. For example, consider the issue of privacy. If you place classified advertisements in a media and you wish prospective buyers to contact you without publishing your own, private telephone number, a temporary local number could be provided in the ad.
Please note, that quantity of virtual (DID) numbers per account is unlimited!
