Yes, in most cases it is possible to "port" your number across to our network. We have a knowledgeable and dedicated team of people that will make the transfer process as easy as possible for you. The only thing we will need you to do is sign an industry standard Letter of Authority, confirming your request.

No! That's the beauty of virtual landline numbers. Calls are seamlessly routed to their destination number. The caller has no way of knowing if they have been diverted to a single number or around a hunt group.

You can have as many virtual landline numbers attached to your account as you want. Some customers have just the one number, whilst other customers who require a presence in many different geographical locations, have hundreds.

Nothing changes! The primary benefit of a virtual landline is the great flexibility it offers. Should your address and STD code change, simply log into My Virtually Local and change the destination number as required.

There is no minimum contract length. If your virtual landline telephone number becomes inactive for a period of six months, its ownership may automatically transfer back to Virtually Local for resale.

No you don't. You can have many numbers on one single account. Each virtual landline number can be easily managed within the My Virtually Local number management portal. Plan upgrades can also be managed using the My Virtually Local portal.

During the signup process, you will choose a plan for your numbers that include bundled minutes and features. Each month we will take payment from your chosen credit or debit card. Payment information is stored securely with our payment processor Stripe.

Your minutes include calls to UK fixed landlines, starting 01 and 02, and calls to the four major UK mobile operators (EE, Vodafone, Three, and O2) only. Calls to other destinations will be charged as per our standard tariff at out of bundle rates.

If you exceed your minutes allowance, we will charge a small “pence per minute” rate which is payble with your next invoice. The charge is 1.5p per minute if you are diverting to a Landline, or 6p per minute if you are diverting to a Mobile. If this happens regularly, we would recommend upgrading your package.
