Planet Telecom 0844 and 0843 numbers: how they operate

0844 and 0843 numbers are sometimes called ‘non-geographic numbers’ (or NGN for short) because these numbers don’t designate a particular town or area, unlike an 0208 number, for example.

You simply choose which phone number you want your NGN to be linked to. So when your customers call this number, all their calls are instantly and automatically directed to your selected ‘destination’ number.

And, for maximum convenience and flexibility, you can change the destination number as often as you’d like – using your online ‘dashboard’ – absolutely free. For example, when you’re away on business your 0844 or 0843 number can be redirected to a new number and your clients are none the wiser.

Free routing plans

For even greater flexibility, you can automate this re-routing facility. So, for example, you could set up your 0843/0844 number to automatically switch to a different number at a certain time of day. Naturally you can change or cancel the redirection as often as you want, all from your online dashboard.

Free divert-to-mobile & free voicemail

You can also divert your Planet Telecom 0844 or 0843 to a mobile, free (this would be paid for by your revenue payment) So you could advertise your business with an 0844 number and take all the calls on your mobile. (Needless to say, your callers will have no idea they’re calling a mobile and naturally they won’t pay the normal charges for doing so.)

Our free voicemail service simply records your callers’ message and then emails it to your computer or smartphone as a wav soundfile.

Fantastically flexible!

Free divert-to-mobile, free voicemail and free automatic time-of-day routing in combination mean you could take your 0844/3 calls on your mobile during working hours, for example, then redirect them automatically to our the voicemail service after a certain time of day – if you didn’t want to take business calls on your mobile after 5pm, for example.

What customers pay to call a Planet Telecom 0843 or 0844 number

Since last year, calls to 084 numbers are now split it to two distinct parts: A service charge (the part of the call that the service provider collects) and an access charge (the part of the call your phone provider charges for calling these numbers).  Calls to the 0843 and 0844 numbers available for sale on this website carry a 7p per minute service charge.

How to advertise your 0844 or 0843 number

Naturally, it’s not practical to tell your customers what all these new access charges might be! The new rules mean you have to clearly state the first part of the call’s cost right by the number, anywhere you advertise it – websites, advertising, packaging, vehicles and so on – in a certain way…

The suggested wording you could use for a Planet Telecom 0844 or 0843 would therefore be:

Calls cost just 7p a minute plus your phone company’s access charge.

You might want to add something along the lines of “Contact your phone company if you don’t know their access charge” although this isn’t compulsory.

No additional kit or additional phone lines required

Naturally, you can continue using the phone your Planet Telecom 0844 or 0843 number is linked to exactly as you did previously —for incoming and outgoing calls. All the call rerouting is done by Planet Telecom remotely (and automatically) so your normal phone service carries on uninterrupted. For the same reason, you never need to buy any additional phones or equipment or rent any additional lines from your telephone service provider.

With your online dashboard it’s incredibly easy to control your Planet Telecom 0844/0843 numbers The Planet Telecom online dashboard makes managing the day-to-day operations of your 0844/0843 numbers a piece of cake. So, for example, say you needed to reroute all your incoming 0844 calls to voicemail during the weekend: a couple of clicks on the online dashboard and you’re done! Want to redirect your 0844 calls to your head office while you’re there on business? Want to take calls on your mobile automatically after 6pm, say? No problem. It really is that simple.

Moving to new premises? Take your 0844/0843 with you!

With a Planet Telecom 0844 or 0843, when you move to a new office or new premises, you don’t have to reprint your promotional materials or amend your website to show a new phone number.

To your customers, you’re still in the same place you always were.
