Virtual Phone number in Indonesia

In this article, we will explain how it works and how you can get a virtual phone number in Indonesia now.



A virtual number is a real phone number

A virtual phone number is actually a normal, real phone number. The only difference is that a virtual number isn’t connected to any physical phone line or to any SIM-card.

You can make and answer calls with free apps for Android and iOS or your laptop.

People calling your Indonesian virtual phone number will have the same experience as if calling a regular local number.

When you make calls from your number – people you call will see your number before answering.

Different types of numbers

In Indonesia, there are two types of numbers that you can purchase as virtual numbers.

  • City numbers
    These phone numbers are related to a city, Jakarta starting with 21.
  • Toll-free numbers
    These numbers are free for the caller to call – as long as they are calling from within Indonesia. Toll-free numbers start with 800. The owner of the phone number pays an extra per-minute fee for all calls received.




Who can buy an Indonesian phone number?

Anyone in the world can buy an Indonesian phone number. You do not need to be an Indonesian citizen or live there to buy one.

We are required by our providers to know who our subscribers are. Due to this, you are required to submit your address – anywhere in the world – and an ID number.  In some cases, you may be asked to provide proof of address and ID.




What does it cost?

The cost of having a virtual Indonesian number is based on the following components.

  • One-time set cost
  • Monthly cost
    From $22.49.
  • Per-minute cost for incoming calls
    $0.36 per minute.
  • Calls and call forwarding
    Costs as a local call
  • Optional add-on services
    Voice response, and call recording require that you have a paid plan (starts at $9.95 per user and month). This includes free calls, call forwarding, and free phone numbers.



Answer calls

The easiest way to answer incoming calls to your Indonesian phone number is to forward all calls to your regular mobile phone number or to a landline number.

When you receive a forwarded call, you can see the number of the caller – or the virtual number they called – depending on your settings.

Call forwarding worldwide costs like a regular local call.

There are many other options available for call forwarding, such as answering calls with voice response, sending calls to team members, etc.



Make calls

You can make calls from your Indonesian number by using our free Android, iOS, or web app. You can import your regular mobile contacts into the app and call anyone you know with a click.

The person you call can see your number. You can choose if you want to show one of your Sonetel numbers or your regular mobile number.

You will be charged local call rates for the calls you make.





SMS is not supported on virtual phone numbers from Indonesia.



Voice response

If you want to add voice response to your phone number (“For sales, press one…”.) you need to have a paid plan. This gives you access to the “Voice apps”.

You can easily create menus for callers, announcements, or voicemail boxes.

Text-to-speech can be used to create the messages to be played to callers. Simply type in the message you want to be converted into an audio message. You can also upload audio files or record new messages with your phone.



Call recording

Call recording is available if you have a paid plan.

Only use call recording if you can do it without breaking any laws in the country of the phone number, or in the countries where you – and the person you are talking to – is in.
