How do Ghost Numbers work?

A Local Phone Number is "pointed" at your landline. You can ask us to change where the Local Phone Number is pointed to which we will do at no charge. We bill you every month. The bills are by the second - we don't round up to the nearest penny.

I am in and out all the time. Can I divert my Ghost Number?

Your Ghost Number will automatically follow any diverts set up on your landline. For example if you routinely divert incoming calls to your mobile when you leave your office then inbound calls to your landline made on your Ghost Number will follow the divert to your mobile.
