What is a virtual phone number and why do you need one?
Remember the days when a phone operator would manually connect you with the person you were attempting to call with set cords and wires? We do not. But we have seen them in movies!
Phones have adapted to our needs fast, as we have started looking for quicker and direct communication. We have gone from having no phones to having phones that require third party operator intervention to having phones that do not work unless the internet is off to having phones that can stream video calls on command. It is a pretty interesting evolution that began in 1849. Before you go full steam on what a virtual phone is, take a look at the physical transformations of telephones in general here.
Virtual Phone Number
Landlines are still widely used in the United States, all though they are slowly phasing out of our culture now due to the rise in mobile phone usage. However, what you do not realize, is that mobile phones still use land to connect. They are connected back to cellular towers (depending on your location) and require access to those cellular towers to be able to work. Travelling internationally is where you usually find problems with your mobile device because most carriers only occupy a stringent range of connectivity, hence you are charged for these roaming rates.
A virtual phone number is one without borders. It has no physical tie to any land service or phone system. Most would describe it as being a part of the mysterious “cloud”. In other words, a virtual phone number takes and receives calls from a remote proxy, which is the center for forwarding these calls both ways. Virtual phone numbers are pretty common in business use because a corporation may have multiple locations, but a customer just needs to be answered so the call will hit the remote proxy, and then be dispersed to these offices so the customer can be answered.
Travelling anywhere requires the ability for accessible communication in these connected times, whether it is to keep in touch with your loved ones, or to document fun moments of your trip on social media. A virtual number grants that ability for a much more affordable price than, for example, using Verizon Wireless to extend overseas using their landlines and a huge spike in price.
Virtual phone numbers are almost seamless in their service. Some of you may get annoyed with the tiny drawback of having a different SIM and a different phone number than normal, but really it is only the initial set up that may require you to pay attention. Most travellers carry two numbers on them: one that is used for their new country, and one used to contact their family and loved ones back home for a much more affordable price.
