About our 0844 numbers

In the last of our posts about our main categories of numbers, we’re going to be looking at our 0844 numbers. 0844 numbers are non-geographic numbers, meaning 0844 does not indicate any specific geographic location in the UK. They therefore give you a national presence.

If you have one of our 0844 numbers pointed to a UK landline, you will receive 2p per minute on every call you receive, and are not charged to receive the call. If you have one of our 0844 numbers pointed to a mobile then you are charged 8p + VAT per minute to receive the call, which increases to 27p if you are on the 3 Mobile Network.

Your customers calling your 0844 number from a landline, whether it is pointing to a landline or a mobile, pay 5p per minute to make the call. However, this varies according to their provider if they call you from a mobile phone. Whether your 0844 number is pointing to a landline or mobile, you pay an initial £5 + VAT set up, and then rental of £5 + VAT per month.

As with all of our numbers you only need to give 30 days’ written notice to cancel your number. You receive a fully itemised monthly bill, and if you order from us anytime between 9am and 5pm Monday – Friday we will aim to have your number connected within minutes.

About our local numbers

Number three in our series of posts about our range of numbers is local numbers, also known as virtual numbers and ghost numbers. These are numbers which can be pointed at your existing landline or mobile phone, and that give you an area code for an area that you want to appear local for. For example, if you are based in London but want to also have a Birmingham phone number to appeal to customers in the midlands, then you get one of these pointed to your phone and you have a Birmingham number as well as your London number. They’re also great for companies wanting to appear to be based in London, but cannot afford London prices so base themselves outside.

Local numbers are ideal for companies that have one central head office but want to appeal to lots of different areas, or for companies that operate using mobile phones as they are mainly on the road but want to appeal to have local premises. Often calling a mobile will put potential customers off, so this is a good way to avoid that.We have a wide range of local numbers for 479 different UK area codes.
