Support ⋟ Frequently Asked Questions
What are Virtual Numbers?
Virtual Numbers are private, disposable phone numbers that give you the privacy and control you can't get with regular phone numbers. With Virtual Numbers you'll never have to give out your real phone number again. And if your new private phone number ever become less-than-private... just toss it and get a new one!
Why do I need Virtual Numbers?
Virtual Numbers are used by anyone who is concerned about their privacy. When you use a Virtual Numbers anonymous telephone number, your real phone number is kept private. And unlike traditional phone numbers, your Virtual Numbers are disposable. If you ever need to change your phone number you can do so in a matter of seconds and as often as you want.
What's the difference between Virtual Numbers and Extension Numbers?
Virtual Numbers are just like any phone number you've ever dialed -- dial the number, and it rings! Extension Numbers are like the extensions most people use at their office. They are regular phone numbers with a 5 digit extension (212-555-5555 ext. 53100). Virtual Numbers are normal phone numbers with no extensions. When callers dial your Virtual Number they do not need to enter an extension and calls are immediately connected to your forwarding number. Virtual Numbers can be added to your account for a small monthly fee.
