VOIP or alternative phone number? : Advice please
Until recently I've been using my mobile phone to handle what little business calls I need to receive but because a side-line is starting to take off I've noticed the need for a separate business phone number that can avoid confusing potential or actual customers with our personal answerphone message.
In truth I've really not bothered to learn about VOIP because time has been taken up with a hundred other things but I'm aware that it could be a potential solution and I'd rather not have to pay out for a separate line as I suspect that's overkill.
So, here's casting my net wide and asking for suggestions on where to look, possible solutions, etc...
Just as a guide the general guidelines or spec's I have are:
Kit (ie: what I have):
- landline = BT
- ISP: Be There Broadband
- Vario III - T-mobile with data package
- ability to try landline, then mobile
- cut to system or mobile voicemail before getting the landline (personal) voicemail
- low cost
Having spoken to someone in the know to a point (although not so much with VOIP) I'm really after recommendations on suppliers because my head is spinning at high rate with all the information.. Simple would be appreciated.. :)
Thanks in advance.
