Can I use Virtually Local as an individual?

Indeed you can! Our platform is ideal for both home and business users alike. If you have any questions or queries, please do contact us.

Can I choose my own Virtual Phone Number?

Absolutely! Select the relevant area code and you will be presented with a comprehensive list of available virtual telephone numbers. Numbers are displayed in groups of standard, gold and platinum. Simply select the virtual number of interest and follow the simple sign up process.

How long does it take for my virtual landline number to go live?

Once your virtual landline order has been placed, the number will be activated instantly. The entire virtual landline order and activation process should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete. The final step is call forwarding, you need to decide where to point your new number.

I have an existing number, can I use it with your service?

Yes, in most cases it is possible to “port” your number across to our network. We have a knowledgeable and dedicated team of people that will make the transfer process as easy as possible for you. The only thing we will need you to do is sign an industry standard Letter of Authority, confirming your request.

Do my callers know they are being diverted?

No! That’s the beauty of virtual landline numbers. Calls are seamlessly routed to their destination number. The caller has no way of knowing if they have been diverted to a single number or around a hunt group.

How many virtual landline phone numbers can I have?

You can have as many virtual landline numbers attached to your account as you want. Some customers have just the one number, whilst other customers who require a presence in many different geographical locations, have hundreds.

What happens if I move premises?

Nothing changes! The primary benefit of a virtual landline is the great flexibility it offers. Should your address and STD code change, simply log into My Virtually Local and change the destination number as required.

What is the minimum contract length?

There is no minimum contract length. If your virtual landline telephone number becomes inactive for a period of six months, its ownership may automatically transfer back to Virtually Local for resale.

Do I need a separate account for each Virtual Number?

No you don’t. You can have many numbers on one single account. Each virtual landline number can be easily managed within the My Virtually Local number management portal. Plan upgrades can also be managed using the My Virtually Local portal.

How do I keep my numbers topped up with credit?

During the signup process, you will choose a plan for your numbers that include bundled minutes and features. Each month we will take payment from your chosen credit or debit card. Payment information is stored securely with our payment processor Stripe.

What destinations are included in my minutes?

Your minutes include calls to UK fixed landlines, starting 01 and 02, and calls to the four major UK mobile operators (EE, Vodafone, Three, and O2) only.  Calls to other destinations will be charged as per our standard tariff at out of bundle rates.

What happens if I exceed my bundled minutes?

If you exceed your minutes allowance, we will charge a small “pence per minute” rate which is payble with your next invoice.  The charge is 1.5p per minute if you are diverting to a Landline, or 6p per minute if you are diverting to a Mobile.  If this happens regularly, we would recommend upgrading your package.

  • We approached Virtually Local at least three years ago now. We wanted a landline telephone number automatically diverting to our engineers’ mobile phones. We now advertise the same telephone number on all marketing material including company vehicles. The level of service we receive from Virtually Local is brilliant. I find myself recommending these guys to friends and customers at least once a week.

  • Responsible for the 24-hour delivery of medical equipment to hospitals within our region, the diligence and politeness of the support we receive from Virtually Local is unparalleled when compared to our previous supplier. Virtually Local’s online portal provides us with a very simple method of changing our call divert profile 24/7/365 and I can rest assured that if we need support it’s right there when required.

  • Starting my own company was no easy task, especially daunting with the local competition within the security industry. Virtually Local came as a recommendation. I contacted Virtually Local by email with my requirements which was soon followed by a return phone call. My new telephone number was setup and working within the hour which is now printed all over our merch.

  • We started as a one-man driver chauffeur company; but quickly realised we needed more cars and more drivers. With that comes the necessity to be able to handle more enquiries and more calls. Virtually Local provided us with one central telephone number that is diverted to a team of 4 remote operators – any available operator can handle the call. Would I recommend Virtually Local? Without a doubt.

What are the benefits of having a virtual landline telephone number?

Landline To Mobile Numbers

Landline to mobile numbers have many useful applications for both individuals and small businesses. The rise of mobile and fibre internet means traditional static landlines are either not relevant, or not available. Whilst the phone lines no longer add value, their numbers certainly do. Customers will always feel more comfortable dialling a local phone number for products and services. Local landline numbers instills customer confidence as businesses are perceived to be well established. Callers to local landline numbers benefit due to cheaper local call charges.

Landline To Mobile Divert

Landline to mobile number diverts (call forwarding) are perfect for modern small businesses looking to effectively deal with incoming phone calls. Using the Virtually Local number management system, users can quickly and easily divert their number to any mobile or landline number. Other system features include sequential and simultaneous routing. Sequential routing allows calls to be routed to destination numbers in sequence one after another. Simultaneous routing allows calls to be split and sent to multiple destination numbers all at once.

Outbound Calls

Making calls from your virtual number is easy. Calls can be recorded and viewed on the call history page within the number management system (MY VL). Outbound calls are included in your plan.

Call Recording

Recording your calls is a great way to keep track of what has been discussed or to resolve disputes.  Recording is ideal for those customers who are legally obliged to record their telephone calls.

Local Phone Numbers

Local phone numbers are available for every part of the UK. You can easily acquire virtual phone numbers for your neighbouring localities and have those calls diverted to your mobile or landline.
