New York, NY (PRWEB) July 13, 2011
Aerobeep, a leading telephone and virtual office service provider in New York City, has collaborated with Lovox corp of NJ to offer the very popular and scarce 212 area code phone numbers.
It wasn’t very long ago that numbers in New York City were available and abundant. Since the boom of cell phones, IP phone services, voicemail boxes like google voice and other services that consume phone numbers especially in the 212 area code of Manhattan, makes this area code hard to get. This has spurred a desire for these numbers, and many companies and individuals holding onto these area codes now have an asset to reveal.
Does it make a difference? Who cares about the area code? It’s just a number.
Well, to some a number is a number and the area code or number itself does not matter. The objective is to communicate as long as the call gets through. But as one person put it:
“I’ve spent over a quarter million starting my wedding favors business, what’s another few bucks to get a nice number that looks good on my web site,” says Sarah of Newfavors.com.
It’s this need to establish New York identity and a corporate look that drives demand, explains President of Aerobeep and Voicemail Kris Taneja.
“So many people call us for numbers in the 212 area code,” says Mr Taneja, “That we need to acquire more numbers for our voicemail service.”
Aerobeep and Lovox Corp have worked together as resellers of telephone service for over a decade and have recently launched http://www.buya212number.com to facilitate easier acquisition of numbers for clients. Aerobeep has established links with telephone companies, CLECs and corporations holding 212 area code numbers. As companies decide to disconnect lines or down size operations, their service and numbers are put up for transfer and mediated by Aerobeep and to those seeking New York telephone presence. “There’s demand for a number in the city,” explains Mr. Taneja.
While a lot of numbers are available in newly formed area codes of New York, many feel the 212 area code remains a symbol of identity as well as a sign of established business in New York City.
