Finarea/Betamax VoipIn Numbers

Discussion in 'UK VOIP' started by Jeremy Porteous, Dec 24, 2007.

  1. There are so many of the Finarea providers offering VoipIn numbers. I have
    just signed up with voipcheap.com but was disappointed to get an 05601
    number. Do any of the providers offer a real UK geographical telephone
    number?

    voipcheap.co.uk used to give you an 0161 700 xxxx number, but
    sadly no longer. Mine still works and I hope it continues because
    it is very apt for someone in north Manchester like me.
    If your device can cope with separate incoming and outgoing
    accounts then simply sign up for a free account from Sipgate
    or Orbtalk who will give you a geographic number of the area
    of your choice.

    Thanks, I am aware of Sipgate but was looking for a single provider for free
    outgoing UK calls and an incoming geographic number. Finarea companies
    certainly used to provide 020 numbers according to various posts on the
    Internet, but I'm not sure if this is still the case.

    Any reason why? Most hardware can cope with multiple providers
    You can set-up Voicheap.com (or any other Betamax clone) to display your
    Sipgate number as outgoing CLIP
    Hence the outside world will not notice that your using separate providers
    vor out/ingoing calls
    And you can route your outgoing UK 0800 calls - or azny special number -
    trough Sipgate, and other calls trough Voipcheap etc ...

    Are you sure about that? Most of the hardware I've seen cannot.

    All the hardware I've ever used that can support more than one account
    (Sipura, Fritzbox) can.

    numbers!

    0121 number with them.

    Most pigs with five legs have five trotters. But that does not mean that
    most pigs have five trotters.

    The majority of ATAs cannot support more than one account.

    Because they presume you are in the US I guess, so you are actually
    dialing an international UK number from the US.

    Saying that, can you configure a voipcheap.com account to call a 1800 US
    freecall number for free I wonder.... not that I ever have reason to
    call them, besides US calls are free anyway.
