If I understand what you want correctly then yes and yes.

Try this for starters, you may have sussed some of this out yourself but we'll go from
first principles.
In pbxes create your Sipgate trunk
Trunk Name: the 6 digit Sipgate username (usually the last 6 digits of the phone number)
User Name: Again, the Sipgate username
Password: the 8 character Sipgate password (mixture of numbers and upper-case letters, not the one for logging onto the website)
leave all other fields alone

Create an inbound route
Trunk: the same name as your Sipgate trunk (6 digit username)
Regular hours destination: select the "SIP URI" radio button and input Removed)
substituting your 8 digit voipfone account number.

That's it, anyone dialling the Sipgate geographic number should ring whatever device(s) are
logged on to voipfone. Not that in this instance no device is required to be defined as
an extension in pbxes, we are calling via a sip address and it should find its own way to the

Not sure if this is useful to you, after all the caller could just as well be given the 056 number.

If you can define a second trunk with an account that has credit for making PSTN calls
we can develop this to call landline and mobile phones simultaneously.
Your existing voipfone account should do the trick.
