Local phone FAQs:
How can I order my local number and when can I start using it?
- During the signup process, RingCentral will ask whether you want a local or freephone number.
- Once the process is complete, you can start using your new number right away.
- Every RingCentral Office customer can order additional numbers for multiple locations, all of which will be synchronised within your account.
Why get a local number as opposed to a freephone number?
- A local number gives a sense of being local to potential customers.
- Local customers also have the convenience of making a local call to reach you.
- For example, an estate agent in Greater Manchester with an 01706 area code may want to advertise a phone number closer to the centre of Manchester in the 0161 area code. Phone calls to the 0161 area code number can be forwarded to a mobile phone, home phone, etc.
How can I instantly reply to voicemail using my phone and/or computer?
- You can dial in to your account and listen to your voicemail at any time.
- After you listen to your message, your Auto-Receptionist will ask you if you want to reply, if so, just press a number on your phone to automatically connect to the caller.
- You can also reply to callers from your computer.
- All calls and faxes are logged in to your online account, and all phone numbers in your account are active links.
- Click on the link and you’ll activate RingOut click-to-call dialling.
- RingOut seamlessly connects you via the network phone you’re currently using, with VoIP service.
Can I get multiple local numbers from different parts of the UK, even if I don't have offices there?
- Yes. You can order as many numbers with as many local area codes as you need.
What do you charge for local numbers?
- Your plan includes one company-level fax number and one company-level main number which may be freephone or local numbers.
