What is a Virtual-Phone-Number?
It is a regular phone number that is not tied to a physical line, and can be assigned to your existing phone line as a 2nd number, or any other phone of your choice ( Swiss or International).
This is transparent to the caller, as it is a regular phone number. It can be dialed from anywhere in the world. It will ring at the phone of your choice; home or office (or even mobile), This service handles incoming calls only. It has no effect on our outgoing calls (phone calls you make).
Why would I need a Virtual-Phone-Number?
√ Home-office use
√ Telecommuting (Working remotely)
√ If you would like to cancel your landline, but would like to keep your phone number. You can transfer it through Télésonique to become a Virtual Number ( i.e. not dependent on a physical line). Télésonique will forward your calls to any phone in Switzerland or around the world.
√ Separate private and business telephone numbers
√ Cost savings; No need to install and pay for another phone line, if you just need a 2nd number
