That's probably the case. All my numbers except one are relatively early
ones, allocated when Sipgate first started in the UK over a year ago,
although the one I set up a couple of months ago also corresponds, but it
isn't an exchange code with an awful lot of users so there are probably
lots of spare numbers.

In any event, always use the 7 digit SIP ID when setting up an ipkall

One question though, I have hooked up my SIPGATE details with IPKall as follows:

Sipgate ID: 590xxxx (Displayed in the SipGate X-Lite screen)

However, the US number assigned to me by IPKall always returns busy tone.

Can any of you guys help? Will be much appreciated.
