If you dial an 023 number from a phone in the UK, then it will direct you to a fixed line somewhere in the city of Southampton or close by. The 023 area code covers places like Totton, Eastleigh and Horton Heath, too. However, with a virtual area code number beginning with 023, callers can have their calls answered from any landline or mobile phone. So, a business that has its headquarters in London but which wants to advertise a Southampton local area code telephone number for residents to call can do so. The number might be answered in the capital but callers will still assume their call is being handled in Southampton.
Likewise, businesses can redirect virtual Southampton local area code numbers to Edinburgh, Bristol or Nottingham. It doesn't matter where the call is redirected to, it will always seem to be a Southampton office that is dealing with the response. Callers won't notice a delay in their call as it is forwarded to the agreed number, nor will they hear anything that makes them think their call has been redirected. In fact, mobile phones can also be used to answer virtual 023 area code numbers, as well. This is a good thing to know if your business operates in and around Southampton but you don't have an office in the city. With a Southampton virtual local area business number on your social media, website and business cards, it will seem as though you do.
