Internetcalls.com connection issue

I live abroad and use Skype to call home. I tried Internetcalls.com as they
claim to provide 300 free minutes per week.

My parents phone line is connected to a fax/answering machine and when a
call comes in, it checks if it is a voice call or a fax call. After this
check there is a different ringtone. At this point Internetcalls.com cuts me
off.

I also noticed that as soon as a "normal" answering machine picks up, I get
disconnected and can't leave a message. Is this is normal with
Internetcalls.com? Or just with the free calls?

I never have this problem when using Skype.

Just activated my old hardware to try this configuration as you
describe it and it works proper with internetcalls.com! So it's not
normal by your side and I used a free call number of course.
