With Planet Numbers 0845 numbers your incoming calls are completely FREE
With our 0845 telephone numbers, incoming calls are totally free to receive. Compare this with a BT 0845: you'll fork out over 4p a minute on every single 0845 call you get! Imagine how much that will cost you over the course of a year! It's no surprise, therefore, that so many businesses are choosing our telephone numbers instead of BT's.
0845 Numbers: how they work
You simply choose which of your existing phone numbers you want your 0845 to be linked to. So when your customers call the 0845, their call is 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 0845 calls rerouted to another phone for a while (perhaps when you're away from the office on business), your 0845 is unchanged and your clients are none the wiser.
0845 numbers are sometimes called 'non-geographical numbers' (NGN for short) because these 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 0845 is linked to, 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 choosing a Planet Numbers 0845 you never need to buy any additional phones or equipment or rent any additional lines from your telephone service provider.
And now most of your customers can call your 0845 for free!
Because the majority of consumer calling plans now include 0845 numbers in their inclusive monthly packages, your customers can effectively call your new number for free. But even if a customer's tariff package doesn't cover calls to 0845 numbers, they'll only pay 2p a minute between 6am and 6pm and only half a pence at any other time (that's if they call you from a BT line).
With your online dashboard it's incredibly easy to control your 0845 numbers
The Planet Numbers online dashboard makes managing the day-to-day operations of your 0845 numbers a piece of cake. So, for example, say you needed to reroute all your incoming 0845 calls to a different phone line during the weekend: a couple of clicks on the online dashboard and you're done! Want to redirect your 0845 to your head office while you're there on business? No problem. It really is that simple.
Or divert to your mobile instead
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 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 0845, you can divert your 0845 calls to a mobile of your choice whenever you need to, either permanently or just every now and then.
Moving to new premises? Take your number with you!
With Planet Numbers, when you move to a new office or new premises, you don't have to reprint your promotional materials or amend your website to show a new phone number. This is because, with us, your 0845 number remains the same, 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.
