Hello! We would like to offer you a very warm welcome to The Virtual Number Company, and thank you for choosing to look at our site as you consider purchasing 0844 numbers. This page is solely about 0844 numbers which point to an existing landline number. If you want an 0844 number pointed to an existing mobile phone number, or alternatively if you are interested in purchasing one of our fantastic 0844 fax to email numbers, then click on the buttons above! If you are ready to make a purchase, then please proceed to the list of numbers at the bottom of the page.
0844 numbers are a type of non-geographic number. These are often abbreviated to NGNs. This means that the 0844 area code is not associated to any geographic area in the UK. Instead, an 0844 number could be pointed to any phone in the UK. The benefits of this are, as a company, you don't become associated with one specific area of the country. For example, if a company has an 0207 number, someone living in Scotland might not bother calling it because they would assume it was a London business by looking at its area code. A number starting with 08 gives the message that you are a national company and there to do business with the entire country. NGNs are also ideal because if your business moves premises or relocates to a different part of the country, you can keep the same number and so not lose any customers.
An 0844 number to landline is ideal for companies that receive lots of calls, because not only do you not pay to receive the calls, but you also get a 2p per minute rebate on calls received on your number. So, not only do you not get a large phone bill at the end of each month, but you also get money back for the calls received! Customers calling from a landline only pay a slightly increased cost to make the call, but it means that your business can top up its income from phone calls received.
If you choose to purchase an 0844 number from us then we will not need to install any expensive equipment or make any changes to your landline. We just "point" your new 0844 number at your existing landline number. This means that if you order online before 5pm on a regular weekday, we can usually have your new number set up within minutes. You will then receive calls to your 0844 numbers on your landline phone as well as calls to your existing number. If you want to know which calls are which as you receive them, we recommend adding our brilliant call whisper feature to your 0844 number, which will tell you if the call is to your 0844 number.
