When you join Vonage, there are all sorts of telephone number options available. Here are some of the ways you can make your new phone number work for you.
Traditionally, when you join a new phone company, you get a phone number with the dialling code of the town or city you live in. If you live in London, you get a London code. If you come from Leeds, it's a Leeds dialling code. With Vonage, you can, if you want, choose a dialling code that's different to the one for where you live.
Choosing a dialling code gives you the flexibility to use your phone number in the way that saves you, and those who call you, the most money. A UK area dialling code that's local to your friends or family means that they can call you, no matter where you live, for no more than the cost of local call.
Whatever dialling code you opt for, you can still make unlimited¹ landline calls within the UK or to countries included in your call plan.
Susie: kept her home dialling code when she went to university
When Susie moved out of home in Hull to study in London she got terribly homesick. So when she signed up to Vonage, she picked a phone number with a Hull code. Her friends and family can now call Susie in London at a local Hull rate. And she can make unlimited¹ calls to anywhere in the UK for a fixed monthly fee. So the chats stay cheap and everyone is happy.
Mark: wanted a local code for his local clients
Mark's business is based in Leeds, but he travels all over the country. So he picked a Leeds code. His loyal, local clients don't hesitate to call anytime, no matter where he is in the UK.
