How To Get a Business Phone Number
You could carry around a second cell phone (oof) or get a dual-SIM Android phone. But many business owners are going with a low-maintenance, high-tech solution: the VoIP phone number.
VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) numbers are internet-powered phone numbers that work on your existing phone, laptop, desktop or tablet. In addition to the ordinary phone functions you’d expect—calling, texting, and voicemail—VoIP phone lines provide added perks, like readable voicemail, downloadable messages and call forwarding.
We’re a certified VoIP provider and can set you up with a professional phone number in less than 5 minutes. Here’s how to get started.
You can add a 60-day Phone Service trial to any other Northwest offering (including registered agent service and business formation service) at checkout. Or you can order Phone Service on its own, by clicking the button below. Either way, your price is just $9 per month—and there’s no need to sign a contract.
Upon signing up you’ll receive instant access to your client portal, where you’ll be prompted to select an area code (from any state) and choose your new local number. Then you’ll let us know whether you’d like calls forwarded to your personal number, or routed directly to your web browser.
Once you’ve set up the basics, you can click on the Settings tab of your client dashboard and get busy customizing.
Go to Dial to make a call, hit Messages to send a text, or start adding people to your easy-to-edit Contacts board.

Northwest Phone Service FAQs
What will my business number look like when I make calls?
The phrase “VoIP number” probably sounds a little nebulous, but don’t let it throw you. When you use Northwest Phone Service to place a call, your clients, leads and business contacts will see an ordinary local number. If you decide to add your business name to your outbound Caller ID, they’ll see that too.
Do I have to pay by the minute?
Nope! Because it’s entirely internet-powered, our Phone Service isn’t based on minutes or data usage. Your phone bill from us will always be the same—a flat fee of $9 a month.
Can I add my business number to directory assistance?
Yes—you can let us know you’d like your Northwest number to be publicly available under your Caller ID settings. Once you do so, your company’s name and number will be added to your local Yellow Pages. Old-fashioned advertising!
Do I have to sign a contract?
No. Your monthly phone subscription is contract-free and you can cancel anytime without additional fees.
Do I need to download or purchase additional software?
Nope. We have a free mobile app in the works (stay tuned!)—but Northwest Phone Service isn’t app-dependent. You can instantly access your phone line from any web browser—and the user interface works just as well on your office computer as it does on your phone.
Can I have more than one business phone number?
Yes! Northwest Phone Service was designed to grow along with your business.
