How Do I Divert Landline Calls to a Mobile or Another Number?

With our landline number to mobile service, it’s never been simpler to divert landline calls to your mobile or any other phone.

Why Should You Divert Business Calls to Your Mobile?

Diverting landline calls to a mobile phone, in many cases, is a service provided for commercial clients, although can be for personal use too.

In a commercial setting, new and existing customers would often prefer to call a landline number, rather than a mobile number, when dealing with companies. It offers a professional appearance and can instil confidence in the company’s legitimacy, so it can have a positive impact on customers when choosing one business over another. In many cases, the landline numbers will in fact call through to a mobile phone; for new and established companies, having the flexibility of a mobile phone as a primary contact number is invaluable.

How does call forwarding your landline number to your mobile work?

At Smart Numbers, we use the UK’s biggest Tier 1 networks and most reliable VoIP Network, including BTipex, which means we can offer the best coverage and call quality. For a small fee, we can set up the divert service which is on a monthly rolling contract, so you don’t have to worry about cancellation fees or being tied into a long-term contract.

All you need to do is choose the landline number you would like, and we’ll do the rest. We have access to every area code across the UK, so wherever you are based, we can have the right local code for you. Once chosen, the number will be yours forever, so even if you relocate or change your mobile handset, you can keep the same number.

Smart Numbers has a range of call divert options and services available for you – contact us or visit our website today to see how we can help you.

What Is a Virtual Landline?

Using a virtual landline are extremely simple to set up, easy to use and are often used for start up and local businesses wanting a “local virtual landline” representation.

Simply put, a virtual landline is what it says: a virtual phone number, which stays the same despite your location, unlike traditional landline numbers that are associated with a specific building or address. So, whether you’re working at home/office or regularly work at your customer’s location (on site or out and about), you can receive a business call via your virtual landline on your mobile wherever you go!

Your virtual landline number can be a geographically local number, starting with 01 or 02, or a national number, starting 03 or 08.

What Are the Benefits of a Virtual Landline?

Whether you’re using a virtual landline for business or personal use, the benefits can be great.

  • No need to worry if you’re at home or out and about, you can have your virtual landline number diverted to your mobile phone, so people only need to have one number to contact you, wherever you are.
  • If your business is new and going through a period of fast growth, you won’t need to change your number if you need to relocate. This means no costly changes to make on business cards, and avoiding the possibility of your customers having the wrong information.
  • Having a single phone number as a point of contact means you won’t miss any calls, plus it can have a great professional impression and will make it easier for people to contact you.
  • A virtual landline number can be much less costly than a fixed landline; there are no fixed contracts, just a rolling monthly agreement.
