Virtual Number

A Virtual number is a normal mobile or cellular number used exclusively for receiving calls from mobile or phone devices. Messages can be sent to many mobile networks, and response is received over the net using our web interface or can be downloaded in realtime in EXCEL format, unlike short codes that can only receive sms but virtual numbers can receive calls. These are typically used to establish a two way communication channel between a SMS application or a user and the mobile audience allowing to query advertised content.

Importance of Virtual Number

A virtual number, also known as DID or access number, is a telephone number without a directly associated telephone line. Usually these numbers are programmed to forward incoming calls to one of the pre-set telephone numbers chosen by the client; either Fixed, Mobile or VoIP. A virtual number can work like a gateway between traditional calls (PSTN) and VOIP. Subscribers to virtual numbers may use their existing phones, without the need to purchase additional hardware.
