Thank you for visiting this page of The Virtual Number Company which is for people wishing to purchase an 0844 number to be pointed to an existing mobile phone number. If you are actually looking to purchase an 0844 number that can be pointed to a landline number, or if you want an 0844 fax to email number, then please click on the appropriate button above. If you are ready to buy a new 0844 number then please go straight to the list of numbers at the bottom of the page. However, if you would like to know more about 0844 numbers to mobile please read on.
A key feature of an 0844 number is that it is a non-geographic number. Non-geographic numbers, often abbreviated to NGNs, are numbers with codes that are not connected to any one geographic area in the UK. For example, a number starting 020 is recognisably a London number, whereas a number starting 0844 could be anywhere within the UK. The benefits of this are that you can move your business to anywhere in the UK and retain the same number without losing customers. It also means that you don't exclude any potential customers in the UK. For example, if you had a Leeds area code, potential customers in the south west might think you were a north east company only, whereas with an 0844 number you are recognisably a national company. Therefore, if your aim is to be national company then an NGN will help to give you a national feel.
To set up your 0844 to mobile number, we simply point your new number at your existing mobile phone number. If you order before 5pm during a normal working week then we can usually have your number set up for you within minutes. You will then receive 0844 number calls to your mobile phone alongside calls to your existing mobile number. If you want to know which calls are to your 0844 number as you receive the call, you can set up our call whisper feature on your number. To read more about this and our other fantastic features, click on the box below.
When your customers call your 0844 number from a landline they pay a flat rate of 5p per minute, and you pay 8p per minute to receive the call, although this increases if your mobile phone is on the 3 Mobile Network. If customers call your number from a mobile then they will be charged for the call by their mobile provider.
