Custom business phone number

I already have a Fido phone number and account but would like to get a second number that is customised and easy to remember for my business. I do not want to purchase another phone or carry two phones with me all the time. How can I get a custom phone number and use both numbers on my galaxy s7 edge? I would like to be able to have people calling my personal number and business number but only use one phone. Thanks!

Re: Custom business phone number

Hi there,

 

There are some companies out there that offer specific telephone numbers or offer you to port in a unique number, and it is programmed in a way that you do not need to carry a second phone, the number is simply a virtual number that forwards the call to your existing home or cell phone number.  I have seen this service for sure in the USA and im pretty sure it exists in Canada but I do not think fido offers it, you might have to go thru a third party vendor to find such service and find out what monthly fees they charge for such service but it does indeed exist.
