Yac Number Frequently asked Questions

What is a Yac Number?
A Yac Number is an all-in-one number that integrates your phones calls, voice messages, and faxes.

Your Yac Number is an 07092 personal number that is associated with you, rather than a particular place or phone. You can use a Yac Number to direct calls to any phone no matter where you are.

Instead of having to give your contacts your home number, mobile number, work number, and fax number, you can give them just one number, your Yac Number!

Please note that 070 personal numbering services are not guaranteed to be accessible when called from outside the UK – therefore are only suitable if your callers are based in the UK.

Does Yac replace my existing numbers?
No, a Yac Number complements your existing numbers. Your mobile phone, and your phone at home, at the office or elsewhere can be used independently or in conjunction with your Yac Number. Your Yac Number is best used to manage and control all the calls coming through the one or more numbers that you may already have.

Do I need a phone to use my Yac Number?
Not necessarily. If you do not have your own phone, you can forward your incoming calls to any phone number that may be convenient for you.

Alternatively, you can forward your calls to your email inbox. When your caller dials your Yac Number, they will be asked to leave a message. This message will then be forwarded to your email account as an audio attachment.

Can I use a Yac Number if I am a non-UK resident?
Yes. Although Yac is a UK-based service, you'll find it useful even if you are not a UK resident.

If you live in one of over 100 countries (including the United States, Australia, and most of Europe) to which we forward calls, you can use a Yac Number to receive phone calls, voice messages, and faxes from your UK-based colleagues, clients and customers - at no cost to you.

Please note 07092 numbers can only be called from within the UK.

Can I use a Yac Number as a virtual office in the UK?
Yes, a Yac Number is the perfect solution if you are a business person who wants to have a ‘virtual office’ in the UK:
  • Have a UK-based telephone and fax number that can be used by your colleagues, suppliers, clients, customers, etc., in the UK.
  • Establish a foothold in the UK.
  • Save on the expense of opening an office in the UK.
  • Eliminate the need to pay for expensive call handling by a third party bureau.
  • Ensure that you don't have to rely on a third party to act as your representative. When your UK contacts call your Yac Number, they will speak directly to you.

What are the different types of Yac Number modes?
The mode of your Yac Account helps you to control how you want to use your Yac Number. The mode will dictate what options will be offered to your caller when they ring you. They can be offered to speak directly to you, to leave a message, to send a fax, or a combination of these options. Your choice of Yac Number mode will affect what Yac greetings your caller will hear. There are three different types of Yac Number modes:
  • Voice/Fax Mode
    By default, all Yac Accounts are created in Voice/Fax Mode. With this mode, your caller will be welcomed by the Yac Welcome Greeting, which will offer the caller the choice of holding while the call is forwarded directly to you, leaving a voice message or sending a fax. If the caller opts to leave a voice message, they will then hear the Yac Personal Greeting.
  • Voice Only Mode
    With this mode, your caller is instantly connected to you. Your caller will not hear the standard Yac Welcome Greeting but will be told they are being connected. If you can't answer the call when it is routed through to you, your caller will be prompted to leave a message.
  • Fax Only Mode
    With this mode, your caller will not hear any voice prompts. The person sending you a fax is immediately connected to your Yac Number's virtual fax machine, and the fax is sent to your email inbox.
