A virtual mobile number is a mobile number that you can receive messages on back to your account. A dedicated number is a number that only you have access to which means you can receive messages without having to send a campaign first.
They can be used for inbound SMS enquiries, keyword campaigns, Email to SMS and 2 way SMS.
A standard virtual mobile number cannot be called. If somebody attempts to call your number, they will get a disconnected message. They are for receiving messages only.
