070 Personal Numbers
What are 070 Numbers? Well, they couldn't be any more simple.They are virtual numbers used to cover up the actual phone number being called. They are used for keeping phone numbers private when they need to be. These numbers are also known as ‘Personal Numbers’ or ‘Follow Me Numbers’.
As Personal Numbers are not classified as premium rate numbers, it is not a requirement to state the cost of the call to the caller, but we recommend that you do.
Why use 070 numbers?

- They provide continuous communication as you or a staff member can receive the call no matter what.
- No inbound call costs.
- You can keep the same number even if you relocate.
- You can cancel the number at any time so people can no longer contact you.
