  • 08 and 03 numbers are cloud based numbers that work by being “pointed at” the nominated landline, which is usually the current main advertised number, or perhaps a phone line that has been set up for a specific purpose or service. Inbound callers can reach you in two ways: by dialling the normal landline number, and/or by calling your new 03 or 08 number. Which one they use is down to your marketing / advertising approach. Every 08 and 03 number has phone bill statistics where you can measure your marketing success by analysing inbound call traffic for each 08 and 03 number.
  • Set-up and number rental is free. Call charges will vary depending on the non-geographic number you choose.
