Planet Numbers 03 Numbers: how they work
You simply choose which of your existing phone numbers you want your Planet Numbers 03 to be linked to. So when your customers call the 03, all their calls are instantly and automatically redirected to your selected 'destination' number. And, for maximum convenience and flexibility, you can change this number as often as you'd like to - absolutely free.
This means that, for example, if you move to new premises or you need your 03 calls rerouted to another phone for a while (perhaps when you're away from the office on business), your 03 is unchanged and your clients are none the wiser.
Like 0800 and 0845 numbers, 03 numbers are sometimes called 'non-geographic numbers' (or NGN for short) because their numbers don't designate a particular town or area, unlike 0207 and 0208, for example.
You don't need to buy additional kit or rent additional phone lines
Naturally, you can continue using the phone your 03 number is linked to on exactly as you did previously - that's for incoming and outgoing calls. All the call rerouting is done by Planet Numbers remotely (and automatically) so your normal phone service carries on uninterrupted.
For the same reason, this means that when choose a Planet Numbers 03 number you never need to buy any additional phones or equipment or rent any additional lines from your telephone service provider.
Want to divert your 03 calls to your mobile?
If you're often away from your main premises, perhaps meeting with customers, clients and suppliers - particularly if you're a small or one-man business, you might like to pick up your 03 calls on your mobile instead of on a landline.
Needless to say, your callers will have no idea they are calling a mobile and naturally they won't pay the normal charges for doing so! When you choose a Planet Numbers 03, you can divert your incoming calls to a mobile of your choice for just 9p a minute whenever you need to, either permanently or just every now and then.
Moving to new premises? Take your 0333 number with you

This is because, with Planet Numbers 03s, your 03 number remains constant even though your actual geographic location may have changed dramatically - perhaps to the other end of the UK! To your customers, you're still in the same place you always were.
