Flexible numbering lets you take complete control of your incoming telephone calls. Just one unchanging number can reach you at any normal telephone wherever you may be in the world. By choosing the right Flextel Number, you can do this without paying any call diversion charges or monthly service fees.
Re-routing your Flextel Number
By using a single Flextel telephone number, you can change the destination of your calls 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and you can do this from any location. In fact, you can control your Flextel routing from just about any telephone in the world.
Simply call the special rerouting number (0370 321 0000) and enter your
Flextel Number and PIN number (using either the phone keypad or a tone
dialler) followed by the new destination for your calls. Normally, your
calls will start to arrive at the destination you choose about 30 seconds
after requesting the change of routing.
Alternatively, you could reroute via:
Just imagine having a single telephone number that directly connects inbound calls to you wherever you are in the UK, whenever you choose.
Flextel eliminates any need to give out private home or unlisted numbers but gives you the power to receive calls on those lines when you want to. By routing Flextel Numbers to your private numbers, it is easy to take calls there. When you no longer wish to be disturbed, simply instruct the completely automatic Flextel system to deliver those calls to your office, secretary, answering machine or other service.

Intelligent Call Diversion™ (ICD) - Is an exclusive service available with all Flextel Numbers.

Privacy: Using Flextel Numbers means you don't have to release your private, ex-directory phone number and reveal your location.
Privacy and complete control
Only you will be able to change the routing on your Flextel Numbers. Access to the special rerouting line is protected by a security PIN code, chosen by you, of between four and six digits which you treat like a bank card PIN. You will also be the sole person who knows the actual destination of where you are - the only thing your callers will ever need to know, unless you choose otherwise, is the Flextel Number they should dial to contact you.
Simplicity at its best
It is surprisingly easy to gain complete control over your future calls:
Since 1992, Flextel have consistently used secure and high-speed digital exchanges to translate your Flextel Number to your chosen destination number. This translation occurs instantaneously when making a call and takes place without any recorded diversion announcement. This means that it is impossible for diallers to tell that their call is being diverted. As a result, Flextel saves customers money by not conforming to traditional diversion costs, which are usually processed via your local exchange.
Whenever you want to change location, your security PIN code will allow you to receive calls from any telephone with incoming calls enabled, even a call box in the road!
You can now gain greater control over your calls than ever before by diverting your calls quickly and easily via our website, a simple voice response system, or an SMS text message.
