Grasshopper is leaving the UK

We embarked on a journey to provide small businesses with a professional phone system. As of January 2018, we will no longer be accepting any new signups.

We will help our current customers port their numbers over to another carrier before we officially shut down the service on 30 April 2018.

Withhold Your Personal Number With a Virtual Phone System

All companies need ways for customers to contact them. When you first start a business, your mobile number may work well, but as you grow, you should consider a dedicated business line. A Grasshopper virtual landline will forward calls made to your business landline directly to your mobile, home, office phone, or any combination of your choosing.

Simply put: you give your customers your business landline number and answer their calls from your mobile! The ability to withhold your mobile number from customers gives you complete control over your business and personal communications as well as the professional appearance of a dedicated business number.

Frequently Asked Questions about Grasshopper’s Virtual Phone System

What is the difference between Grasshopper and a regular phone system?

The basic difference is what’s physically in your office space. In a regular system, all the wires and switches will be in the office, and you’ll have to set them up (or hire someone to do it). The Grasshopper virtual system is hosted by a third-party who manages and controls the wires and switches.

Can I switch my current business number over to a new Grasshopper system?

Yes. You can port the number over, usually when you sign up.

What’s the difference between Grasshopper and VoIP?

VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) makes and receives calls using your internet connection. Grasshopper uses a third party provider rather than your personal internet connection, which makes it more reliable. For an in-depth comparison, check out our VoIP comparison guide.

How does Grasshopper work with a VoIP system like Skype or Google Voice?

VoIP is mostly about making and placing calls, while Grasshopper’s virtual phone system is designed to manage and route incoming calls. If you already have a Skype phone number, Grasshopper can forward calls to those numbers. Basically, Grasshopper compliments VoIP services.
