03 numbers have been designed by Ofcom as an alternative to 08 numbers, but can only be used by non profit organisations. Callers dialling your 03 number should pay the same as calling normal geographic 01 /02 landlines and must be included in any discount or inclusive minute packages. No revenues are payable on any 03 numbers.

The caller pays a charge of between 10p per minute to £1.50 per minute (regardless of where they are situated in the UK and dependent upon the type of service they are calling) the person being called (whoever owns the number) gets paid a percentage of the revenues generated by that number.

Callagenix have a wide variety of UK phone numbers to ensure that we can provide a flexible service to suit your specific business requirements.
Regional numbers are available for a number of UK cities and consist of the standard trunk dialling telephone numbers made up from an area code followed by a six- or seven-digit number (e.g. 0207 1234567). These can be used by the Callagenix system as an access number for their services in a similar manner to the non-geographic numbers (freephone, local, national and premium rate).
Using a Callagenix international number service can enable your company to present an international telephone presence in over 100 countries around the world, without the costs of you being physically located there.
Using our advanced telephone services, or a combination of services, you have the ability to route calls to any telephone number, anywhere in the world. If your requirement is not to route voice calls, we can easily set up other services, such as fax to email, voicemail to email, Information lines and company emergency lines. We can also set up international numbers to route data traffic as well.
The services from Callagenix offer greater functionality and capabilities than the divert functions personal numbers offer, and we use the more comfortable freephone, national, regional and local rate numbers.
Basically, you get a number from Callagenix, attach your service to it and then divert your existing telephone number to the new Callagenix number. That's it!
This works if your published number is a normal geographic exchange number (e.g. 01628 484214) then you can arrange to have this diverted to the Callagenix number of your choice (we would currently recomend the use of a Regional number for this purpose). You will need to contact your telephone service supplier to do this. The process for BT is outlined below.
For customers who do not wish to change their current telephone number but still wish to take advantage of all the services offered by Callagenix, you can arrange for BT to divert your current number to your new Callagenix number. There are two ways to do this:
You can call BT by dialling 150, listen to the options and eventually select Call Divert.
Log onto the web at http://www.bthome.com/better_value/select_services/interactive/index.html then tick Call Divert and follow the instructions on the screen.
You need to do this as BT will check who you are and that the number you wish to have diverted is yours. Once the divert has been set up, the following instructions are used to control this service. (NB. BT can take up to four hours to do this).
To divert all calls to your existing number to your Callagenix number:
On your tone telephone, dial * 21 * (YOUR CALLAGENIX NUMBER) #
To divert calls to your existing number when busy to your Callagenix number:
On your tone telephone, dial * 67* (YOUR CALLAGENIX NUMBER) #
To divert calls to your existing number when not answered within 15 seconds to your Callagenix number:
On your tone telephone, dial * 61 * (YOUR CALLAGENIX NUMBER) #
You can check your existing BT call diversion state by:
On your tone telephone, dial *# (21 or 61 or 67) #
To turn the divert off and receive calls directly to your old number (Not the Callagenix Number):
On your tone telephone, dial # 21 #
Charges: BT currently charges £4.50 per quarter for this service, you also are liable for the cost of the BT diverted call
