    Default Virtual Phone Number in Dominican Republic

    What is the best virtual phone number system if you want locals to be able to reach you at a Dominican number while you are abroad? Not everybody seems to have access to WhatsApp or Skype.

    Thanks in advance!

    Here every body has a Cellphone and the price per minute to USA from all Dominican Companies has same price as a local call, so is not a big deal to call to USA, new local plans for fixd phones you can call any number in the USA and PR and use your local minutes for the call and if you have a postpaid phone also the minutes of your plan is included USA and PR as local call and the price is the same for a local call if you have used all your minutes and the campany just billed extra minutes.

    It was actually a pretty concise answer, if you have a US number, it is the same as having an RD number as far as cost of a Dominican originated call to a cell.

    Are you specifically looking for a Dominican number, then buy a SIM card on a cheapie phone, and sign up for whatsapp, and that will be your number, pretty simple, am I missing something?

    I think he wants to be reachable anywhere in the world on the Dominican number, even a landline, which so far none of the responses addresses.

    Do you have a better solution than whatsapp, which DOES solve the portable 809/829 number.
    I love dr1, do you?

    If you're on a cell phone, no. Given the criteria the OP laid out, the solution probably needs to be landline friendly, which WhatsApp is not.

    What Mido appears to be looking for is a Dominican phone number that he can use while outside the Dominican Republic so those in the D.R. can call that number instead of an out-of-country number.

    It probably is not possible, so the next best thing would be a Net Talk, Magic Jack, Skype, Google Voice, etc. number that he can use anywhere he has an Internet connection.

    That depends on where he'll be. *If it's all over the world, no, won't work. *But if it's the USA, I know our niece has a Dominican phone number that rings in Oklahoma.*

    Can you explain what carrier / VOIP app she uses?
    Call forwarding would work, but incurs the cost of the forward to another line.
