What exactly is a virtual phone number?

A virtual phone number is simply a phone number that isn’t tied to a physical location. They can be connected to hardware SIP phones if that is your team’s preference, but virtual phone numbers can be accessible over mobile devices, tablets, and computers.

How does it work?

A virtual phone doesn’t use traditional phone lines to work. Instead, virtual numbers make calls through VoIP technology. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) systems are able to make calls over the internet.

Once you are set up with a VoIP system, you will receive access to a virtual telephone number. If you already have a business phone number, you can likely port your existing telephone number. If you don’t have one or would like to change yours, you can choose between local, international or toll-free numbers.
