The mobile landline SIM

What is a Mobile landline SIM? 

The Go Mobile Landline SIM is a very clever mobile SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card that connects you to the Go Mobile Network. As the name suggests, our mobile landline SIM’s allow our customers to use their mobile phone to make and receive calls on their landline number without the need for clunky apps, wifi or data connections. The Go Network and our Landline SIM’s are “The best bits from your regular office phones but with the freedom of a mobile”.

What it isn’t

There are lots of companies in the UK that claim to offer ‘mobile landlines’. These fall into one of two categories; Diverts and Apps.  As you can see below, neither solution truly offers the simplicity or power that you get with our Mobile Landline SIM’s.

Landline Diverts – This solution involves a supplier providing you with a virtual landline number that is on a permanent divert to your mobile. There are a couple of issues with this approach.

  • The divert is always chargeable, meaning that you will be either capped to a certain number of inbound minutes per month or you will pay by the minute to answer your calls. What happens when you run out of inbound minutes? Blocked calls…
  • If you are using a personal mobile it might be hard to distinguish between business and personal calls.
  • What if you miss the call and want to return it – after all It’s a virtual landline? Like most people you will call back from your mobile and it will display your mobile number. Your customer will save your mobile number and from here on will never call your landline again. Not to mention some customers might consider this to be unprofessional and cast doubts around the size and legitimacy of your organisation.
  • What if you aren’t the only one that answers calls and you need your landline to ring a group of people?

Mobile Apps – This solution is touted as the future of unified communications and it sounds great. Make and receive landline calls from anywhere on your smartphone is the promise. Unfortunately, in the real world Wifi and Data networks simply don’t provide a consistent enough connection for acceptable business calls. Buffering and dropped calls will frustrate both you and your customers and within a short time you will give up on it. Furthermore, you can only make and receive the calls when you have the app on or on background refresh which will deplete your mobile phone battery in record time. 

What about Go Mobile?

With Go Mobile and our Mobile Landline SIM’s the aim was to resolve all of these issues, letting businesses use their mobiles as landlines without compromise.

How it works

Our Mobile Landline SIM’s are all about taking the best parts of your office phones with you wherever you go. We do this by cleverly routing your calls through the UK’s three major mobile networks (O2, EE and Vodafone) and onto our hosted phone system. From here, the call can behave just like you made it from a landline and means we can offer incredibly low cost calling and all the features you have come to expect from your regular office phones. What’s more, because our phones can roam across the top three UK networks if you are in an area that is lacking service from one provider but not another, our SIM will automatically select the network with the best signal before placing a call – in effect this gives you the widest and best mobile reception available on any mobile network in the UK.
