Have you ever wondered if it’s possible to get a landline number for your mobile? With a Planet Numbers’ virtual landline number, you can.
One of the great things about having a virtual number is that it’s not tied to any specific handset or phone line. You can choose a landline phone number for any UK town or city, and have the calls routed to your mobile phone. For example, you can select a central London number, (0203, 0204, 0207 or 0208) even though you might not be based in London – and answer the calls anywhere – on your mobile.
