The 070 numbers, or 'Personal/Follow Me numbers' are great if you're someone who's always working on the move, around the country, even around the world. Just beware that these aren't mobile numbers, so your callers will pay 50p/min to call you from a BT landline.

It's quite common to use an 070 number as an alternative number (or temporary number) in adverts, chat rooms or anytime you want to keep your 'real' mobile or landline number private.
It's happened before. These numbers have been mistaken for a mobile number and the caller has been blissfully unaware (that is until they get their bill) that calls to these numbers can cost up to 50p per minute (that's how much they cost with us). So, in order to try and limit this issue:
Some providers will charge you to make the simplest of changes to your virtual numbers; but we don't believe in that. We want you to have control of your numbers and give you the tools to really make the most of them.
