0800, 0843 & 0870 in more detail - All the above numbers work in much the same way, that is to say number translation. Whilst your present telephone numbers remain unchanged, your new 08?? Number sits on top of it at the exchange so when called the exchange translates the 08?? Number dialed to your true telephone number and passes the call to you. Because of the simplistic way in which the exchanges deal with these numbers this opens up a whole range of Intelligent Routing Options.

Day and Time Routes - Route calls according to the date and time the call was placed. Most often used to provide out of hours calling.
