- Follow Me Phone Number
What is a Follow Me Phone Number?
- A follow me phone number
is a type of "virtual" phone number that you can configure to follow you from one physical phone to another.
Callers who dial your follow me phone number are routed to whichever phone you've designated such as the phone
at your office. You can even configure the number to follow you.
For example, if you don't answer the phone at your office desk in a certain number of rings, the call could be
forwarded to your next designated number such as your mobile phone.
- Benefits of Ordering a Follow
Me Phone Number
- When you order a follow me phone number, you make it easier for callers to reach you no matter where
you might be. If you've ever been frustrated by having to dial multiple phone numbers to finally reach someone,
then you can understand how your callers might feel if you too have multiple phone numbers.
Instead of asking callers to first try you at the office, then at your home office, then at your mobile phone,
and so on, simply provide them with a single follow
me phone number. Depending on your preferences
you can either configure specific call routing routines or change the ring to number on the fly as needed.
It can also follow you internationally. Simply change the 'ring to' number by logging into your account and modify
the 'ring to' number to your international phone number and your calls will be redirected internationally to any phone
- in any country to a mobile, landline, fax, PBX or VoIP.
While you likely have a mobile phone, many professionals prefer not to give out its direct phone number. After
all, incoming calls consume valuable minutes and it's frustrating to take a mobile call when sitting at a desk
with a perfectly functional landline.
In addition, when callers have your mobile number, you have less control over your phone hours. With a follow me phone number, you can receive calls on your mobile phone when it's practical
for you. When it's not practical to receive calls at all, you can configure your virtual number to ring directly
to voicemail by using the 'do not disturb' option. You could even have those voicemail messages routed to your
email address if desired.
