Virtual SMS Number Availability
The service is month-to-month, no long term contract
For example you could be located in the USA but have an office in Argentina or simply have
callers located in Argentina. You can buy an Argentina international virtual phone number. The callers located
anywhere inside Argentina can then call your Argentina Toll Free number at no cost to them and reach you at any
worldwide phone number you choose. And they can use their mobile phone because the virtual number is mobile accessible.
between Local and Toll Free: The big difference is whether or not you need a number for your callers
to be accessible from a small geographical area (local) -or an entire country (toll free).
Local Virtual Phone Number Call Forwarding A local number enables your callers to access
your new phone number at no cost to them 'if' they are calling from the same geographical area as your
selected local number or area code.
Callers from outside the new local phone number calling area will be able to
call your local number from any country, however, long distance surcharges will be charged by their phone company, whoever that may be.
For example, you can own a Rome, Italy local phone number. It would be a local call for any caller located in Rome.
It would be a long distance call for someone located in another country. They would need to pay long distance charges
to their phone company as they would any other international phone call.
As an example, a person in the UK could call your Rome, Italy local number and would need to pay their own phone
company for that International Call from the UK to Italy.
Another example, if you decide to own a Paris, France local number, your callers in the city of Paris could call
your new local Paris phone number at no extra long distance cost to them. You would pay the per minute rates from
Paris, France to your 'ring to' number based on these rates.
Toll Free Virtual Phone Number
You can Select
Your Local or Toll Free Number in 150+ Countries.
Example - you can buy a toll free number in the USA, France, UK,
Hong Kong, Canada, Australia or any of 150+ countries.
Your dedicated toll free number is accessible to the callers inside your selected country at no cost to the caller. This toll free call forwarding number will be a 'country specific
toll free number' for the country you select.
It's possible that your new toll free number may be accessible from other countries at a surcharge to the caller
imposed by your callers phone company, whoever that may be. We have no way of knowing if/what those charges would
be as they are not imposed by us.
Most customers acquire a toll free call forwarding number specifically for callers inside a certain country.
Your costs would be the per minute rate and fees from your selected toll free country to your 'ring to' number
based onthe rates.
Let's assume that it's
important to you to provide a New York City phone number to your callers. Just as an example, you can order a local
number in many different area codes in the State of New York as with many other U.S. cities.
To continue with the New York example, if you chose a New York City number with a (646) area code, many New Yorkers,
not all, could dial your 646 number and not have to pay any additional long distance fees to their local phone
company to reach your virtual number.
A local virtual number will permit a caller within the same city or area code
of your chosen local number to connect to your local number without any cost to the caller within that same area
code, and many times depending on the rate plan your caller has with their local phone company, the call to your
purchased virtual number may be totally free to them.

Advanced free features
The features below can be enabled and disable by the customer through the Customer
Management Control Panel. In other words, after your account is activated and you are provided with the login link,
you can login to your account and easily set up these features based on your usage preferences.
Maximum wait time on answer
This feature defines how long the system will wait for leg B to answer before
considering it failed and moving on to a second 'ring to' number, etc. Ring time adjustments range from 15 to 40
seconds. The times are approximate, but are within +/- 5 seconds. This means that if you set the ring time to your
'ring to' number to be 20 seconds, this may in actuality turn out to be 15 seconds or as much as 25 seconds. By
default the ring time before a call is deemed failed, is four rings.
Therefore, if your circumstances dictate that you need a longer ring time, you can use this maximum "wait
time" adjustment. Many customers experiment with this setting until it works to their benefit or they leave
the default setting in place.
"Local Ringtone" feature
The system can play a localized ring tone (the tone you hear when you call someone
and it's ringing). You will have a selection of 40 countries or the choice to use the remote-end ringback tone,
which means the audio is passed through from the destination (this is the default).
Once you activate this free feature, you will increase local appeal when callers dial your Toll Free or Local number.
The caller will hear the normal dial ring tone of their country which will make the caller feel more comfortable.
We currently have 40 distinct country local ring tones that customers can choose from. The rest of the countries
around the world use one of these ring tones.
Both of these settings are available on the advanced forwarding settings page (accessible from the Customer Management

Quality of call forwarding
This service is based on public network infrastructure (PSTN). It is not a VoIP
Calls transported over (VoIP) the Internet are subject to uncontrollable transport, bandwidth and other issues.

non-existent with Global Call Forwarding service.

the calls to divert to.

Become a Local Business in another Country
Global call forwarding utilizing a virtual phone number is an excellent strategy for any
company that desires to do business in a country outside of their own local area.
Do you have customers overseas? No doubt you probably have a web presence for your product or service. You may
depend heavily on that web site which has a 'contact' link and a local phone number (in your country) for potential
new customers or existing customers to reach you.
Your contact form and a local phone number on your web site may be the only method a potential customer can use
to reach you or your sales department.
What happens if your existing local phone number is at your headquarters in Miami, Florida USA but a large portion
of your customer base is located in Panama or Brazil or some other country?
Your overseas caller is then faced with an obstacle, they either must call your USA phone number and pay international
long distance fees or send an email or use a contact form. All of these methods are acceptable but really do not
compare to providing a local number in the caller's country or city.
Of course, it depends on what type of product or service you offer on the web. Some web based companies prefer
not to display any phone numbers.
But if you are offering any type of product or service with a significant purchase price, you'll do more business
with a virtual call forwarding number or remote call redirection located in the country or city where your caller is located. A call
forwarding number can be a solution.
Therefore a web presence does not solve the issue of removing the long distance call obstacle that faces your current
or future customers should they want to place an order immediately or reorder or simply gain a comfort level that
you are really a viable company and are sincerely interested in getting their business.
Many enterprises buy a local number
or international phone number.
For example, you can be located in the USA and decide to own a local Paris France or Hong Kong phone number and
have the callers automatically redirected to your Los Angeles or New York main office phone number. By doing so,
you have effortlessly created a local presence in Hong Kong or Paris or many other available countries and cities
around the world.
Currently we offer availability of approximately 2,000 possible cities and countries including Local numbers and
Toll Free numbers globally.

Virtual Phone Number Forwarding for Global Call Redirect
When it comes to international communications, high tech solutions
aren't always the right answer. In fact, a seemingly low tech service, for international call forwarding is a practical
solution that delivers international callers to the phone of your choice. Here's what you need to know about using
international call divert as part of your global communications strategy.
What is International Call Divert? International call divert is a type of call forwarding, except it
involves virtual phone numbers. As you may or may not know, toll free phone numbers are specific to each country
or region. For example, a typical US 800 number only works for callers in the United States or Canada. If a company
has international customers, they need their own country-specific toll free phone numbers. Using international
call forwarding, those international calls can be forwarded to the company's designated call center located virtually
anywhere in the world. Using international call forwarding, a single call center could receive calls from the United
States, Canada, Spain, Argentina, Australia, Germany, and other countries.
Why Use a Call Divert Service? Using international call divert delivers callers from around the world
to the phone of your choice. It is a practical way to centralize operations. While call center operators are the
obvious choice for international call divert, many smaller companies use international call forwarding to their
For example, when testing a new overseas market, you could order a local phone number and then forward it to your
main office. This immediately creates a local presence without the need for renting office space in a distant land.
International call divert is also commonly used by business travelers to ensure that they are readily accessible
despite a complicated itinerary.
International call divert may not be as exciting as newer technologies such as web conferencing and mobile apps.
However, it is a tried and true communications method and international call forwarding delivers practical results.
How International Call Forwarding Works In order to divert your international calls, you'll need to find an
international call divert service that supports the countries involved. Let's say that you want to forward calls
from Hong Kong to a call center in Malaysia. Depending on your preferences, your call divert service would issue
either a local or toll free virtual phone number for Hong Kong and then forward callers to the designated ring
to number, in this case your Malaysian call center. This virtual phone number would look like any other local of
toll free Hong Kong number, yet instead of ringing to an office in Hong Kong, it would ring to your call center
Generally speaking, international call divert services charge for
international call forwarding by the minute based on the originating country's rates. These calling rates vary
from one country to the next. In addition, calling rates may be higher when callers use mobile phones to dial your
international virtual number. Make sure to look up your call divert service provider's rates for each country and
for each country's mobile users to ensure that you're getting a fair price. Keep in mind that some countries have
a much higher percentage of mobile users than landlines.
International call divert services often use VoIP to route calls. Though this "high tech" communications
method leverages the Internet to route calls, audio quality continues to be an issue. That's why we advocate traditional
phone carriers for international call divert. These networks are tried and true and audio quality is exceptional.
They may seem low tech in comparison due to their long history, but make no mistake, the technology delivers!
How Mobile Workers Can Benefit From International
Call Forwarding Today's workforce is increasingly mobile. Not only do workers often
work in the field, many work from home some days. Others may work at different branch offices throughout the week
while others may spend time at client locations for extended periods. While your mobile team members may each have
their own mobile phones, issuing a virtual phone number for each mobile worker is a fantastic way to control calling
costs while ensuring that workers are readily accessible no matter where they may be working at any given time.
How Does a Mobile Virtual Phone Number Work
with International Call Forwarding? A virtual phone number is an extremely portable phone number. Rather
than being tied to a single phone line or mobile device, a virtual phone number can be configured to ring to any
phone number of your choice. Moreover, you can change this designated ring tone quickly, easily, and as often as
Why Use a Virtual Phone Number when Mobile Workers Have Mobile
Phones? Whether your mobile workers bring their own devices or use company-issued mobile
phone numbers, it is not always desirable to give out a mobile phone number to clients, prospects, and others who
may call at all hours of the day or night. With a virtual phone number, workers can configure when calls will be
routed to their mobile phones and when they should be routed to voicemail or an alternate phone number.
In addition, many workers take mobile phone calls when they're seated inside an office with a perfectly workable
landline or VoIP line. This uses up valuable mobile phone minutes, results in higher costs, and is not as comfortable
for the user. The ability to switch the virtual phone number's ring to destination at will allows the user greater
control over which physical phone to use.
Which Mobile Workers Can Benefit from a Mobile Virtual Phone
Number? While most anyone who works on the go can benefit from a virtual phone number, those
who may benefit the most are those who frequently work from different locations such as their homes, main offices,
branch offices, client job sites, and temporary office spaces. A virtual phone number is also a good choice for mobile workers who
travel overseas frequently. For example, when visiting another country, there's no guarantee that your mobile phone
will work. Even if it does work, international roaming fees will make using the phone cost prohibitive. With a
virtual phone number, you could purchase a cheap disposable phone inside the destination country and then use the
international call forwarding feature of your virtual phone number to that temporary mobile phone.
Virtual phone number forwarding and your BYOD policy. Instead of giving customers their personal mobile phone numbers
and worrying about boundaries, they can give out their virtual phone numbers and configure international call forwarding
so that those calls are only forwarded to their mobile phones during business hours.
