Best deals to Keep UK mobile number in Portugal ??????

We have a business in the UK and have moved recently to Portugal.

Our SIM provider only offers roaming deals and when that period is over, using my UK number for calls from and to UK numbers becomes very expensive.

Does any body know any company that lets you keep your UK number and gives good deals for calling and texting from here?

Thanks.

Gabriele

@faj Thanks ! Good luck with that!   Maybe message me again, when something changes with your  3 account.   I will still check it out though.

I have bought a UK landline SIP number from soho66.co.uk, worked same day. Good for voice calls. I don't know if it works for texts.
I still have my Plusnet UK mobile number, works OK, very cheap under £10 per month for data and free calls/texts to UK & EU/Portuguese numbers.

@itexpert7 Thanks! We would like to retain our mobile numbers for our UK contacts , some of them business related.  I will check out Plusnet, but so far all UK based co. s want the SIM to be used in UK first for some time. 

Take care.

Plusnet too needs to be used in the UK with a UK address.
Don't you have friends/relatives in the UK? Have them do it on their address and your name, and mail you the sim card after they activated it.

Sure, will try. As long as its only until the SIM has been activated, That is fine. Some co.s want 2 or 3 months unsage in UK before going abroad.   Then I would be able to use my number for that long....

Thanks very much!
