Is there a landline app?

BT had a mobile app (back when I was a customer) that allowed you to use your landline on the mobile phone.  Think of it as an extension but on a mobile so you could send/receive landline calls in the app.  Not sure if it was voip or some other 21CN wizardry...

Is there an equivalent for Virgin landlines?

Re: Is there a landline app?

Hey @DinoParry,

 

Thanks for posting your query on our forums.

 

Unfortunately we don't have a similar app to the one that BT have, the only service that we have that would come close is to add call divert to your landline service but this would only work for incoming calls.

 

Regards,

Re: Is there a landline app?

There was about 5 years ago until Virgin scrapped it. It was called Smartcall & you could use it to make free & inclusive calls from your landline package using any WiFi connection. There was no incoming call option.

Technology has advanced so most people will now make calls using apps such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger or Skype, all free if you're on WiFi.
