Virtual Phone Numbers: Create a local presence in more than 60 countries

Don’t have a number to transfer across? Looking to create a local presence somewhere else? No problem - we have over 250k virtual phone numbers to choose from.

What is a virtual number?

A virtual phone number is one that’s not tied to a specific fixed landline. When you’ve got a phone number that’s not associated with a telephone line, it opens up a whole world of possibilities.

Combined with a cloud-based business phone system, like CircleLoop, a singular virtual number can work on numerous devices, but you can also direct multiple virtual phone numbers to one person or app.

Virtual numbers make location no object. Add local numbers instantly.

Virtual phone numbers also give you access to local numbers, so even when you’re based somewhere else, you can make and receive calls via numbers local to that area. This makes them an incredibly powerful tool for startups and established businesses alike, whether you want local numbers for your sales teams or a virtual call center for a not for profit organisation.

No matter where you’re based you can add extra UK 01, 02, 03 numbers as well as 07 phone numbers in your CircleLoop app, then dial-out and receive calls instantly. Any number you add is ready for use immediately with no activation waiting times. International numbers are also available instantly, on request.
