New York Virtual Phone Number in Action |
New York virtual phone numbers are a flexible telecommunications
method that provide you with a more affordable way to facilitate international phone calls between New York and
Let's take a look at some example uses of New York virtual phone numbers in action.
Using a New York Phone Number from Abroad
Many international companies seek to have a local presence
in New York, one of the world's fastest-growing economies in the nation.
While many companies occupy local offices, others have opted to use New York virtual phone numbers to establish
a local business presence and have the calls divert to their phones in another city, state or even outside of the
Here's how it works:
In this example, the importer is a sole proprietor
who frequently travels to New York. During his trips, he changes the destination number to his local mobile phone
number so that he can receive calls wherever he is. When in USA, calls ring to his New York City office; when in
New York, they ring to his mobile phone.
1An international business looking to establish a local telephone
presence in New York orders a toll free virtual phone number from us. The number works in New York and is toll
free to callers as expected; however, its "destination" or "ring to" number can be set to any
phone number in the world where it will ring. For example, a US gemstone importer has set thering to number to divert all incoming calls to its main office in New York City.
2Calls can be answered live as they come in or sent to voicemail
based on several factors that the account holder can control such as time-of-day or a certain number of rings.
3The New York virtual phone number can also be configured as a virtual
PBX with extensions and interactive voice response menus.
Virtual New York Phone Numbers for Local Businesses
Businesses in New York also use virtual phone numbers,
both domestically and internationally. Having a toll free number lends a degree of professionalism to the business
and can make a small business appear larger. PBX features reinforce those impressions. In addition, toll free numbers
reassure callers that they won't be charged for the call.
For local businesses that frequently call other countries, having a virtual phone number dedicated to making outbound
calls is a great strategy to keep calling costs low. Since you can change the destination number on the fly, a
few simple steps are all that's needed to make cheap international phone calls from New York.

on a month-to-month basis, they can be used for short-term or temporary international assignments and projects.

needs a convenient, cost-effective way to communicate with his office during his stay.

the US office.
Each week, he calls the office with a status update simply by dialing the New York toll free virtual phone number
which instantly rings to the US office phone number.
There's no complicated country codes, exit codes, or calling card codes to deal with and no reason to get an international
operator involved in order to place the phone call.
Because our New York phone numbers are mobile accessible, the consultant can call from his landline or mobile phone.
