About SCG Wales Virtual Phone Numbers

A virtual telephone number can be an area code that is specific to a town or city location in the UK – for example, 0207 or 01792.

That means you can control what your number is – rather than having a randomly generated phone number provided by your service provider. Or if you cover a certain geographical area, but don’t have a physical landline there, you can appear more local to customers by using a virtual phone number.

We can also provide memorable advertising numbers with the prefix 0800, 0300, 0845, 0844, 0870 or 0871.

At SCG Wales we provide all our inbound call diversion customers with an online portal, which allows instant control over any of the businesses inbound numbers. You can log in 24/7 to make changes to any of your numbers, call forwarding, voicemail and 1:1 services – making analysis and insight quicker and easier.

How will my business benefit from a virtual telephone number?
