Sam uses YourBusinessNumber and WhatsApp Business and is already seeing the benefits of YBN’s service.
“When starting out on my own last year, I took quite a few of my long-standing clients with me from my old job, and I never got round to buying a new phone for my business so I thought it would be OK to give them my personal phone number.
Things quite quickly unraveled and it was a bit of a mess - I had clients messaging me late on in the day, and I felt compelled to reply. I was adding needless stress to my working day by trying to do everything on the one number.
YourBusinessNumber has been a game-changer for me and my clients; they not only get the attention they deserve, but they’re getting a much more tailored experience too. I would recommend this service to anyone in the same position as me!”

You need a second number for WhatsApp Business as you are not permitted to use the same number as your regular WhatsApp account. This would mean buying another phone with an extra monthly contract or pay as you go SIM. With YBN you can get that number to run your business through WhatsApp Business without having to buy a second phone and for a considerably cheaper price than another contract.
No, it’s not possible to use WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business on the same phone. You can only use one number per account.
YBN virtual numbers can only be used in messaging apps. The number attached to your SIM card is for normal calls and SMS messages. If someone places a normal call to your YBN virtual number, it gets forwarded to the SIM card mobile number you signed up with free of charge.
No. An eSIM is an embedded chip inside your phone that acts exactly like a traditional SIM card, removing the need for swapping SIM cards if you move networks. You can have more than one plan from different networks on an eSIM, but the drawback with this is that you can only use one network at a time. With a number from YBN, you don’t have the issue of using one at a time - you can use your business number in tandem with your personal number, whilst still being able to separate it out.
Yes, you can install both WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business but you need a different number for each messaging app. YourBusinessNumber gives you a second virtual UK mobile number that allows you to use both WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business on the same phone.
