Looking for a unique 1300 number?

Phoneword numbers, also known as Smart numbers are custom 1300 telephone numbers purchased from ACMA’s numbering system. Smart numbers can include phone words like 1300 PLATINUM (1300 752846 – The last letters will be discarded when dialed) and distinctive patterned numbers such as 1300 222 222.

A smart number can make it easier for people to remember your business, especially if your phone word complements your marketing strategy.

Once you have your smart number, we can activate this on our platform for exactly the same rate as any other 1300 number.

Asked Questions

What is the difference between 1300 and 1800 numbers?

Clients can reach your business at the cost of a local call from anywhere within the country on a 1300 number or completely free of charge on a 1800 number.

A 1300 or 1800 number can be kept for the life of your business, regardless of what Telco you use. Even if you move to a different provider, a number still will be yours — whereby your regular customers and partners can always get through to you.

Is it free to call 1300 number?

No, it’s not free of charge for a caller but the cost equals to a local call from anywhere within the country, making it a more interesting solution compared to a common number.

Can I port my existing 1300 number?

Yes, sure. You don’t have to buy a new 1300 number and lose your active number when switching to a new VoIP provider. Also, any 1300 number that we provide or that was ported into our service can be ported out to another provider as long as that provider is willing to take on the number.

What are the 1300 and 1800 numbers?

The owner of the 1800 number, also known as Toll-free numbers, will be responsible for paying the cost of the inbound call. However, the call is free of charge for the caller. As for 1300 numbers, the call rate is shared between the owner of the 1300 number and the caller. The owner is charged as per inbound call rates and the caller is charged the rate set by their service provider. In most cases, this is equivalent to the cost of a local call.

How many 1300 numbers can I have?

As many as you wish, there are no any restrictions.

Can I personalise my 1300 number?

Phonewords or smart numbers are 1300 numbers with digits that could be translated into a text.

What if I don't use the 1300 number. Do I have to pay?

Unfortunately, yes. This is regulated by ACMA and Australian government. Being telecommunications provider we also have to pay monthly fees for 1300 number services and hence we cannot make it free of charge. Simple rule is: if you want to keep the number, you have to pay for it each and every month.
