Can the caller trace my real number ?
No, once you have a Number Cloak the caller will have no way of getting access to or tracing the actual number they are calling.
How long can I keep my number?
Once you have a number it can be yours for life, unless you decide to disconnect or the number is not called atleast once within a 6 month period, which is the minimum requirement we ask from each of the numbers we issue. Please note that this could be subject to change in light of any new Telecoms legislation or changes in our terms and conditions.
Can text (SMS) messages be sent to a Number Cloak?
Unfortunately text messages cannot be sent to an 070 prefix number, which is the prefix used for all Number Cloaks.
How do I report a fault?
Is the service totally free?
Yes, the service is totally free to the owner of the Number Cloak, and there will be no billing or charges for any inbound calls.
Does the caller get charged?
