A mobile landline SIM (such as our ONSIM Landline SIM) is a SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card that can have a UK landline number (starting 01, 02, 03 or 08) as well as a UK mobile number (starting 07). This offers a choice of number that is displayed to the callee on an outbound call. Mobile landline SIM’s are typically used by businesses who want to present a professional image to their customers but where it’s not feasible or desirable to install a traditional fixed/cable landline. Other (but not all reasons) someone would choose to use a mobile landline SIM are;
Because of their deep integration into our unique cloud based mobile PBX (MPBX) mobile landline SIM’s also have a wide range of other features normally only found on traditional office phone systems such as call recording, hold and transfer, group features and more. These converged services allow greater flexibility and mobility of existing workforces giving businesses “The best bits from your regular office phones but with the freedom of a mobile”.Get a Landline SIM
There are lots of providers in the UK that claim to offer ‘mobile landlines’ or 'virtual 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 a mobile landline SIM.
This solution involves a phone provider supplying a virtual or hosted landline number that is on a permanent divert to a mobile number of your choice. There are a couple of issues with this approach:
Although there are some drawbacks of using a virtual landline forwarded to your mobile, they are often a good start for a company phone line. If you already have a virtual landline or are looking for something a bit more feature rich, why not take a look at our Landline SIM.
Essentially these solutions are 'soft-phone’ (software phone) apps installed on a smartphone that connect over a data connection to a VoIP system and allow you to make and receive calls. This solution is touted as the future of unified communications and it sounds great. Unfortunately, in the real world WiFi and Data networks simply don’t provide a consistent enough connection for high quality calls. Buffering and dropped calls will make you sound like you’re underwater and 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 very quickly.
Although there are some drawbacks to using mobile apps, largely due to current mobile data limitations, they work ok alongside our mobile landline SIM’s. Our customers often use soft phone apps to cost effectively make and receive calls on their landline when they are outside the EU or for remote workers.

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 mobile phone system (MPBX). 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.
