UK Ringtone on a TTNC Number

If callers are dialling your TTNC Number, then the process is as simple as enabling the UK Ringtone Bolt On.

How to set-up

  1. Add the UK Ringtone Bolt On to your basket when purchasing a new number from our website, alternatively, you can add the Bolt On to an existing number from the myTTNC Store.
  2. Set your forwarding destination in myTTNC.
  3. Enable UK Ringtone on your TTNC number.

That's it, once you complete these three steps, callers to your TTNC Number will hear the UK Ringtone regardless of where you are.


UK Ringtone on your own number

We understand there are occasions when your primary contact number is not on our network, yet you still wish for callers to be presented with the UK ringtone.

There are two ways to do this, both mean you have to divert your calls to a TTNC number and then specifying a forwarding destination.

The method used comes down to one question - Are you going to be in an area with a strong internet connection (via WiFi or reliable 3G/4G)?

No - you would answer calls on a second device.

Yes - you can use our free Softphone App on your mobile.

Please note - Virgin Mobile and Lycamobile do not allow their numbers to be diverted.

1. Answering calls on a second mobile

This method requires a second device to forward calls to. This is perfect if you have a second device available (or a dual sim mobile) and are not likely to have a strong connection to the internet.

How to get started

  1. Add the UK Ringtone Bolt On to your basket when purchasing a new number from our website.
  2. Add your second mobile as your forwarding destination in myTTNC.
  3. Enable UK Ringtone on your TTNC number.
  4. Set your original number to divert to your TTNC number - this can be done:
    1. via the settings of your handset.
    2. by entering a code on your phone's keypad.
    3. by contacting your mobile provider.

See our Help Guide for step-by-step instructions for setting up the Mobile Call Divert. If you are diverting your landline number to TTNC, please contact your provider for more details.

That's it, once these steps have been done, callers to your own number will hear the UK Ringtone regardless of where you are.

2. Answering calls on the Softphone App

The TTNC Softphone App for Mobile allows you to receive calls over the internet via a VoIP User, this method requires a reliable internet connection.

Our VoIP service plays the UK ringtone as standard on all calls, so you would only need to purchase a VoIP User Bolt On. See more information about our VoIP Service and Softphone App.

How to get started

  1. Add a VoIP User Bolt On to your basket when purchasing a new number from our website.
  2. Configure your VoIP User details within your online account.
  3. Download the free TTNC Softphone App for Mobile from the iOS App Store or Google Play Store.
  4. Scan the QR Code to register your VoIP User on the Softphone.
  5. Add your VoIP User as your forwarding destination in myTTNC.
  6. Set your original number to divert to your TTNC number - this can be done:
    1. via the settings of your handset.
    2. by entering a code on your phone's keypad.
    3. by contacting your mobile provider.

See our Help Guide for step-by-step instructions for setting up the Mobile Call Divert. If you are diverting your landline number to TTNC, please contact your provider for more details.

That's it, once these steps have been done, callers to your mobile will hear the UK Ringtone regardless of where you are.

We'd recommend you check any VoIP restrictions and potential data charges in the country you're travelling to ahead of time.
