0870 Numbers

Benefits of 0870 numbers

  • Can take the number with you if you relocate.
  • Forward your calls to your existing landline, mobile or anywhere in the world.
  • An 0870 number can be called reliably from outside of the UK.
  • An 08 non-geographic number adds a touch of professionalism.

0870 numbers are part of the range of non-geographic numbers supplied by Callagenix. They are National Rate numbers that cost the caller no more than a call to a geographic rate number (01 and 02 numbers) from a BT landline. This can be up to 10p / minute but is often less and may even be included as part of an inclusive minutes call package. Calls from other landline providers and especially from mobiles may cost more.

An added advantage is that our range of 0870 numbers has been specifically set up to allow callers from most countries outside the UK to contact you, so if you are looking to buy an 0870 number Callagenix is an excellent choice.

How are 0870 numbers used?

Once you have chosen your number it can be set up in one of two ways. Using our low cost Basic service you can connect it to any UK landline number starting with 01 or 02. Alternatively, if you require calls to the number to be handled more intelligently, or you wish to connect to numbers other than a UK landline number (e.g. to mobiles or an international number), then you can use it with one or more of our Advanced Services instead. You can also start off with a Basic service and painlessly upgrade to an Advanced service at any time when you’re ready.

0870 Number with Basic Service

With the Basic service, your Callagenix 0870 number "sits" on top of another UK landline number, such as your office or home phone. This number and line are not affected in any way. When a customer calls your 0870 number they are immediately connected to your chosen landline. There is no set-up or connection costs and call charges start from as little as 2p / min with a range of monthly and annual inclusive bundles to suit your needs.
