Did you know…
- When you forward calls to an external number, you pay forwarding costs? We charge the same tariffs as for outgoing calls. These are billed by the second and not rounded off to the nearest minute.
- You can add multiple forwarding numbers in a Call group so that they will all ring simultaneously when there is an incoming call.
- You can also make outgoing calls with your business phone number if you download the Voys app on your smartphone.
