    Signing up to a particular service here in the UK requires that the company in question call you on a land line in order to go through a few questions.

    Let's say I had done it for myself, and was now helping someone else do it.

    I could for instance use the same number - risky, just in case they checked records for any reason or the system flagged that up.

    I do actually have a second phone line that I could (and probably will) use, which is a different number to my own.

    However - are there other solutions? Can you get VOIP services in the UK that will look like a land line phone number with an area code relating to the said area?

    Try Vonage or Sipgate. Most geographic areas available but for London
    you get 0203 instead of 0207 or 0208.
