What is a Flirt Number?
A Flirt Number is an 'anonymous' telephone number (similar to a mobile number) that forwards calls to your real mobile or landline phone. FlirtXchange users or even friends can call your Flirt Number from anywhere in the world and will never know your real landline or mobile number. Your Flirt Number Voicebox accompanies the Flirt Number and can be activated to take messages when you'd prefer not to take calls. By registering on our site www.flirtxchange.com you will be issued with your very own Flirt Number absolutely free! Your personal Flirt number is unique to you.
How do I get a Flirt Number?
Upon registering with the FlirtXchange website you are issued with your own personal Flirt Number absolutely free.
How much does it cost to call a Flirt Number?
Calls to a Flirt Number are charged at a per-minute rate which varies depending upon the caller's network provider. For example when a caller contacts you from a BT landline, the call cost is 50 pence a minute. Calls from other networks and international calls will vary in rates - check with your provider for up to date information on their charges

How will other users know what my Flirt Number is?
Upon registering with the FlirtXchange website, your profile and thumbnail featuring your Flirt Number will become viewable on the site. Your 'Shout', accompanied by your Flirt Number, scrolls along the top of the site. You can also give your Flirt Number out on other websites, in chat rooms, or when you're out and about! Your number can be used on ANY website or other service where you want to accept calls or voicemail messages, but do not want to reveal your actual mobile or landline number!
How do I record or re-record my Flirt Number greeting?
If you want to record a personalised greeting for callers, then simply call your own Flirt Number from your registered phone. The very first time you call your Flirt Number, to check your messages for example, you will be prompted to record a personalised greeting. You can choose to ignore this request if you wish, but we recommend you do so. You will get better responses from other members and also collect another 200 free wallet points when you do!
Can I keep my Flirt Number if I delete my FlirtXchange profile?
At the point of deleting your profile the Flirt Number you were issued with is also deleted. You can however get a new Flirt Number at any time by making a new site registration.
If I call a Flirt Number will my real phone number show?
Flirt Numbers are private for you and for callers as no personal numbers are displayed. As such, your real phone number will not show when calling another Flirt Number.
If you call a Flirt Number from the number you have registered on FlirtXchange your own Flirt Number will display on their phone as caller ID.
If you call a Flirt Number from a non registered number then the flirt number of the person you are calling will display on their phone.
How do I know if an incoming call is via my Flirt Number?
If the caller has a Flirt number themselves then their Flirt Number will show as the caller ID. Flirt Numbers begin with the prefix 0701 - this identifies that a call is coming through via the FlirtXchange service.
Please note: If your phone is turned off, there is a possibility that your personal voicemail will pick up the call (rather than the FlirtXchange voicemail). As such, it's a good idea to not put any personal information or your phone number on your personal voicemail. In the case of PAYG we recommend that you record a voicemail greeting so the network default message stating your phone number does not play. Alternatively, if you turn your phone off, you can forward all of your calls to your Flirt Number voicemail.
Can I change my forwarding number?
You can change the number that your Flirt Number calls and messages are forwarded to at any time. Go to 'My Page' and select 'Edit" in your Profile or "Edit Registered Number" in your Flirt Number box.
If you choose Edit Profile, Select 'Change Flirt Number Settings" and choose a verification option. To register a new mobile number you need to text the verification code displayed to you from the NEW mobile phone number. To register a landline number, enter the new forwarding number in to the "phone number" field and follow the verification process.
Can I forward my Flirt Number to an international phone number?
Yes, Flirt Numbers can currently forward calls to destinations around the world. When changing your forwarding number to an international number there is no need to start the number with a +. For example, for the US, put in 1 then the area code and the number.
I'd like to change my forwarding number, but I am not near the handset that requires verification, is that a problem?
We need to verify your phone number each time you change it in order to ensure that you are the owner of that phone. This requires you being there to accept the verification call. This procedure ensures that everybody you call is a genuine FlirtXchange user who has signed up to the service.
