Some of the 0845 and 0870 number redirections offer a really good deal by the looks of things. I've just had a quick browse, and I would definitely consider subscribing to one of these and distribute the 0845/0870 number to customers if I was going to regularly divert a land line to mobile.

It's not going to be a regular thing - just so that we can temporarily be away from the phone - probably only a couple of hours a week tops. We'll see how it goes...

Call Diversion

Don't forget, with call diversion you pay for the call to your mobile at BT's usual rates ie 15p/min or so. Good value if it's a keen customer, bloody annoying when someone's trying to sell you watercoolers, franking machine labels or whatever!

Exactly.

I find that hanging up immediately works well.

Hi
A Lo-Call 0845 number can be directed to your existing phone line find BT offerings here:

http://www.bt.com/store/product/cata...K&obsOID=99027

However the Lo-Call and Toll Free market has been deregulated in the UK so there are a large number of companies offering this service:

Let me know if you need any other info, I currently manage approx. 50 Avaya Definity PBX phone systems in EMEA and a AVVID VoIP network so should be able to offer some advice when you grow your business

fax, FAX?

I haven't used my fax machine for three years...

I took out an online fax thingy with Nildram, which was free (maybe that was Efax?) then it went subscription only, so I binned it.

I gave my old fax machine to someone who kept getting fax calls all day and all night. They had 141'd the number and traced it back to Lloyds TSB Bank, who promised to sort it. They didn't. The calls continued, so they plugged my fax machine in, and recieved the details of someone's premier-plus-gold-super-platinum account transactions which they took in to their local Lloyds TSB branch and presented to the manager. The calls stopped.

You can get faxes sent to your mobile, can't you? Eg: http://www2.orange.co.uk/servlet/Sat...=1096023562518

I use PumaOne Internet fax www.pumaone.co.uk for the odd occasion when someone really wants to do stuff by fax.

I haven't used it very much, but it has worked flawlessly so far.
