Thumbs up Get a Business Telephone Number on the cheap

For 5 a quarter you can get an additional telephone number, that is associated with your current home telephone line, but just rings in a different tone. A good idea for those running a business from home, who don't want to shell out for a 2nd line, but also want to give a professional image by answering business calls in the right manner.

Info from BT below

Get an additional number with a different ring tone
1.75 per month

If you're tired of being your children's receptionist or fed up of answering other people's calls then Call Sign is just what you're looking for. You'll know who each call is for, or who is calling, because calls from certain numbers will have a different ring tone.

We'll give you an additional number for your phone, which will have a separate ringing tone when it is called. Who you give your Call Sign number to is up to you. It could be your children's friends, or an elderly relative, so you immediately know it's them when the phone rings. You can also use it to separate business and personal calls, or calls from fax machines.

NTL??? Catch up! It's Virgin Media now! LOL

We're with the same and they have had an identity crisis from day one. Four names in the years I have been with cable. They started as Nynex, then they became Cable & Wireless, then NTL and now Virgin Media.

The only name they have not used is 'Cheap'.... wonder why!

Re: Get a Business Telephone Number on the cheap

What about using Skype?
I've recently "re-discovered" Skype, and started using it fairly active. I bought a 3month subscription (think it converts to about 3.5) and I get VoiceMail, PhoneNumber, Free calls to landlines in about 20 countries and a couple more services which I don't currently use.

The fun part is, I have a UK / N. Ireland phonenumber, and I live in Norway
Anybody can call +44 xxx xxxx xxxx from any phone, and reach my Skype. I even bought a simple wireless phone that plugs into my USB port, and I don't have to be at the computer to talk on the phone for free
