Non Geographic number is a virtual number, which is country specific but not region specific. When someone dials the non-geographic number you as a subscriber can get the call on you mobile or fixed line. Having a non-geographic number provides the freedom to move all over country without having to worry about the roaming charges.
The charges of calling a non-geographic number can be shared fully by caller, shared between caller and receiver or can only be shared fully by receiver
How do they work
You can get a 0800 series number which is a freephone, 0845 series number, which is a virtual number with local rate, 0330 or 0300 true local rate number or you can opt for 0844/0871 fixed rate virtual number, all these numbers work in the same way.
You get a virtual number and it gets mapped to your landline or your mobile number. So when a caller calls to your virtual number, the call gets diverted to your physical phone and you get the ring.
This mapping takes just minutes to set up and once completed, any call on your virtual number gets redirected to your phone.
