Ways to use a virtual phone number:

In reality, there isn’t too much difference between a virtual phone number and a regular phone number, and in fact, it’s helpful to think of a virtual number simply as a regular number that happens to be hosted by a virtual service provider. Here’s what you can do with your virtual phone number.

  1. Make Calls: Make outbound calls from your existing phones with your virtual number. You can do this even if the number is not attached to your phone.
  2. Receive Calls: People can dial your virtual phone number to reach you just like any other phone number, and the experience is exactly the same for the caller. The only difference is that, when the call comes in through your virtual number, it is then immediately routed to your phones and begins to ring those phones.
  3. Send & Receive Text Messages: Text messaging can also be enabled on a virtual number. To your customers, it appears and functions exactly like normal text messaging, and to you, it’s actually augmented. Manage and organize your messages.
  4. Add Extensions: Add traditional extensions. You can do it in the same way that you would with a conventional wired office system.
