How to get a Local Landline Number for your Mobile Phone

by admin on March 12, 2011

Want your friends to be able to call you on your mobile for the cost of a local call?

Mobile phone calls are still very expensive compared to calling a local land line number. In fact many people have free local calls included in their land line or mobile phone plan.

How awesome would it be then, if you could give out you’re very own local landline number that actually forwarded to your mobile?

I discovered a simple and almost free way to do this after recently starting a new business. I didn’t want to give out my mobile number for three reasons,

1. It would mean I couldn’t ever be off work as the phone could ring at any time with customer queries.
2. It would mean I couldn’t forward calls to whoever was on duty at the time because I wouldn’t be able to differentiate between private and business calls.
3. It is much more professional to have a landline number rather than a mobile number for your business.

The magic glue that makes all this happen is call Voice Over IP or VOIP. With VOIP we can get a local number through a provider which we can then log into with a SIP Phone, mobile phone or computer in order to make and receive calls. I just use the service for incoming calls and the whole thing costs me a grand total of $5 per year!

Many of us have a data allowance with our mobile plan which in most cases goes unused or at worst under utilised, VOIP can use a little of this otherwise wasted data allowance. Remember if you go over your included allowance you may be charged by your provider.

Readers of Whirlpool, Australia’s greatest technology forum, are treated to a special deal from Mynefone. It costs $19.95 to set up but you get a $20 credit which you can use to order your local number at a cost of just $5 per year. See the plan at You can sign up for it at

Once you’re set up and Mynetfone have given you all your log on details, it’s time to set up your phone to log in and start receiving calls to your new landline number.

I have an iPhone 4 and have found two free Apps that will work in the background, Fring and Nimbuzz. I have found Nimbuzz to be more reliable so far. Both these applications provide solutions for many different handsets.

There you go, now your friends and family or your customers can call your mobile at local rates!

I know this was posted a few years back now, im just hoping this is still available.. im in a situation where I really need to be able to receive calls to a landline # on my mobile. It would be much appreciated if you could email me to help me out with this.

Oh and really what I need to know is how reliable this service would be? Would calls ever not come through? Would the person trying to call, not be able to call?

There are millions of people in the world who are just
not living a healthy, happy life. Then the ratings are translated
to numeric equivalents and totaled for the specific vendor.
Starting with the meat, which should be eaten as much as one can but
the point to remember is that, the meat should be cooked simple
without adding much of the fats because fats cause many diseases like blood pressure,
cholesterol and also increase the chances of lethal heart attack by blocking the
passage of blood circulation.

Friendcaller is an app that not every company makes, buasece you can make international calls by downloading apps and feeling out surveys. I think that this app is one of the best so far. I have told my friends and my family about this app and they were amazed. You don’t even have to spend your money to call world wide. I’ve said enough about this amazing App. Hope you like the comment.

Andrea, lets face it, you are a mutti-culluralist. You care about other cultures and people. Their concerns actually concern you.See this is the beauty of becoming a White nationlist. I only have one concern. The future of my people and their advancement. This is the way Blacks and Jews operate and this is how Whites must operate in order to survive.
