What is a US Phone Number?
A US virtual phone number, also known as DID or access number, is a telephone number that is not directly associated to a telephone line. These numbers can be programmed to forward incoming calls to one of the pre-set telephone numbers chosen by the client; either Landline, Mobile or VoIP.
US phone numbers can be registered with any local area code within the United States. Talkroute boasts one of the industry’s largest inventories of virtual phone numbers with hundreds of thousands of options to choose from.
With Talkroute, you may register as many US phone numbers as needed, in as many different localities as required. It doesn’t matter if you are in a big city like Chicago (312) or a small town such as Key West (786), we have US phone numbers available for wherever you do business.
Need more than just a number? With Talkroute, we provide you with all the business features you need from call forwarding and custom greetings to extensions and virtual voicemail. Unlike our competitors, our service includes Unlimited Minutes with all of our local and toll free numbers.
