We've got a fake UK Ringtone so you can go away

Services /

I don't literally mean go away. This week's blog post will look at how you can go away, leaving the UK behind, but still answer your calls with the customer being none the wiser that you're in a different country.

If you're the kind of person who travels a lot or are based outside the UK, it can be confusing for your callers when they hear a foreign ringtone, especially if they've dialled a UK Local Number. Different countries have different ringtones and some can sound a bit like a dead tone, causing the caller to hang up assuming your number doesn't work.

Short term uses

Our UK Ringtone service helps with this issue by replacing the foreign ringtone with the normal UK one. You could be sunning it up on a Caribbean beach, being soothed by the sounds of the ocean and seagulls (are there seagulls in the Caribbean?). If someone calls your TTNC number, they would normally hear the appropriate ring tone for that country. But luckily you have UK ringtone set up, so the caller has no idea they're calling you while you're on the beach. Once the call has finished, you can get back to working on your tan.

Because UK Ringtone is available as a monthly bolt on, you can use it for as long or as little as you need. Going skiing for two weeks? Just pay for it once and then cancel the service when you get back. Or maybe you're on a world tour for six months? No problem, just pay for as many months as you need.

Long term uses

But UK Ringtone isn't just great for those of you who travel. If your company is based abroad, it opens up new opportunities for business opportunities in the UK. You may also have other offices around the world to handle calls at different times of the day. Combine UK Ringtone with Time Based Forwarding and you can answer your calls in the UK during the day, with any calls at night being handled by a team on the other side of the world. All changes would be automatic and callers would have no idea they're speaking to an office in another country. Until they hear that Australian accent.

If you're budgeting over a longer period you can also pay for this service on a yearly or 2 yearly basis.
