What are 0871 virtual numbers?
0871 numbers are numbers which aren't connected to a landline. Not being tied to a landline gives virtual numbers great flexibility for you to control how and where you receive your calls.
When anyone calls your 0871 number, the call comes into our advanced call management platform and from there the call is sent to wherever you want it to: a landline, a mobile, a VoIP device or even an international number. This all happens in an instant so your caller will have no idea they’re calling a virtual number. For example:
Our online dashboard gives you real-time control of your numbers and gives you access to a wealth of features to help you to use your numbers most effectively. You can change where your number points to at the click of a button, get detailed statistics on your numbers and add extra features on demand.
