Virtual Landline provides customers with a free app which can be downloaded onto a mobile, tablet or PC allowing calls to and from your Virtual Landline number. The app has multi-features such as VoIP call, GSM call and peer to peer messaging with other Virtual Landline users.

After you sign up for a Virtual Landline you will be asked in your portal for your mobile phone number to register to the app, this will enable the GSM functionality on your app. Please note that GSM needs a working SIM card so can only work on mobiles or tablets. Calls made via GSM will be charged either via your Mobile Network Operator or deducted from your inclusive minutes and also from your inclusive Virtual Landline minutes.

Once you have signed up you will receive an email with the information needed to activate the apps.

How to use the Virtual Landline App

The app requires an internet connection for the VoIP function and so works on Wi-Fi and 3G/4G, if you don’t have a reliable data connection, the App won’t work properly, and the call quality might suffer. For the GSM function it uses your mobile network like a normal call rather the VOIP which sends the call as data packets via the internet. 

Any calls answered on the app are free to receive. Have a look at our blog for advice

If you are making calls overseas, unless the calls are included in your free minutes, you will be charged. See Virtual Landline country tariffs by using the Rate Finder

All incoming calls forwarded to your mobile number or another landline are chargeable. The cost of such calls will be deducted from your inclusive minutes allowance or top-up amount.
