How the Go Giraffe App works.

One of the ways we like to describe the Go Giraffe App is that it is like harnessing all the functions of a traditional office desk phone, and placing them on a mobile app.

The wonderful thing about the Go Giraffe App is that it is intuitive and simple to use.

Click on the questions below to find out how to get the most out of your app…

How do I add a landline to my mobile or laptop? Accordion Arrow

The Go Giraffe app is effectively an extra phone on your device. Incoming and outgoing calls work in the same way as normal mobile calls. You can use Wi-Fi or your mobile 3/4/5G network.

When you sign up to Go Giraffe, you are asked to choose a new number or you can keep your existing landline number.

How do I choose my landline number? Accordion Arrow

Simple. Let us know what prefix (area code) you would like and we’ll allocate you a number. You can find a list of area prefixes here.

You can choose a geographic area code (eg. o20 – London, 0161 – Manchester, 01273- Brighton…) or a non-geographic number (03).

If you wanted a memorable or particular number, email us with your request (a small fee may be payable).

Can I keep my current number? Accordion Arrow


If your business has a landline number or if you want to use an existing home landline number, just let us know. We will port (ie transfer) your number across from your existing supplier. There is a one-off porting fee of £15+vat for each number.

Please note that it can take a few weeks to port a number as we are relying on your existing supplier to action the move. In the meantime we can set up a divert on your number, so you can use your app straight away.
