Pick a special number, without a 'special price'
Easy-to-remember 'gold numbers' are naturally more expensive, but you may find a number that's unique to you or your business without a heavy premium.
- Your number may include an alphanumeric sequence that fits your company number or industry
- The number you pick may be almost identical to your existing number, so it's easy for people to remember.
