Frequently Asked Questions.

A call diversion service enables you to advertise one number for your business but take calls on a different number, for example your personal cell phone and you want to keep that number private.  In such a scenario, customers and other callers phoning the business will only ever know the advertised number, yet the business owner will be able to see whether or not an incoming call is connected to their business.

A call diversion service can provide a simple, fast and economical way for a business to appear larger or to expand its presence interstate or nationally. An entrepreneur who runs several businesses, each with their own advertised number, can also use a call diversion service to have calls for all businesses answered on a single number (whether a cell phone or a number at physical business premises).

As an example, typically on a cell phone, an unanswered call would go through to the telecommunication provider’s own voicemail service.
