Planet Numbers 0844 and 0843 numbers: how they operate
0844 and 0843 numbers are identical in the way they operate and the way they're charged. They're 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 simply choose which of your existing phone numbers you want your Planet Numbers 0844 or 0843 to be linked to. So when your customers call this number, 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 - using your online dashboard - absolutely free. For example, when you're away on business your Planet Numbers 0844 or 0843 can simply be redirected to a new number and your clients are none the wiser.
Free time-of-day routing
For even greater flexibility, you can automate this re-routing facility. So, for example, you could set up your 0844 or 0843 to automatically switch to a different number at a certain time of day. Naturally you can change or cancel the redirection as often as you want from your online dashboard.
Free divert-to-mobile & free voicemail
