Can I still use my landline that the 0800 number is pointed to?

Questions and answers about 0800 numbers:

How long will my 0800 number take to go live?
As soon as your payment has cleared it will only take minutes to get your number in service.

When I call out will people see the 0800 number as my phone number?
Not by default, however if you want your 0800 number to appear as your calling ID, you can do one of two things:

  1. You could switch to using our VoIP service to place calls, either with a VoIP phone or our smartphone VoIP app.
  2. You can speak to your existing phone line provider about adding a service called CLIP (Calling Line Identity Presentation) to your existing landline. This will allow you to call out and present your 0800 number as your phone number.

Why are Gold or Platinum 0800 numbers more expensive?
Because they are highly sought after. In today's fast-moving business environment, companies need catchy, memorable numbers to use in advertising where the potential customer may only have a few seconds to take in your message. A highly memorable phone number helps, but there are only so many easy to remember combinations. Grab yours today!
