Default How can i dial my brother's PSTN phone using ENUM

Thank you so much i cannot express how happy iam now.
Although this might not benefit me very well because my brother is in africa with number starting +234806xxxxxxx, seldom he is online because of the cost and termination is only to a local provider which is PSTN there in Nigeria.
If i have a way to change this that will be too god because iam spending so much money calling home.
Once again thanks.

Perhaps you can SMS him (if he has a mobile) or call him for a very short period WITHOUT using ENUM, then he turns on his Internet and you call him through ENUM or directly using his Voxalot ID if that is the account that is set up for him.

ENUM depends upon your perspective.

From the perspective of the person who owns the phone number (i.e. the party being called), setting up ENUM is just a way to tell the world that such and so VoIP address (for example, a VoXaLot account) will reach the same person as a specific normal telco phone number call would. So from the perspective of the person BEING CALLED (i.e. who owns the number), ENUM is just giving the world info about the fact that your VoIP will also reach you (in addition to the normal telco phone route). This doesn't do anything for you per se, but it does make it easier for people to call you "for free".

OTOH from the perspective of the person DOING THE CALLING (i.e. the party calling your number), ENUM is a way to use that info to decide if there is a "free" (VoIP only) way to reach the same person, knowing only their normal telco number. If that person's normal calling allows for such free calls, this is a possible way to make the call for free.

Note:

1) VoXaLot support outbound (calling party) ENUM by default. So unless you turn off this feature (and it is configurable in your VoXaLot account), when you try using your VoXaLot account to call someone in ENUM (via one of your "providers"), VoXaLot will detect this fact and (using the ENUM info) redirect that call to the "free" (VoIP to VoIP) route automatically.

2) VoXaLot doesn't do inbound ENUM (making it easier for you to be called by someone who knows your telco number) be default. However, if you want to let people know your telco number(s) can also be reached via VoIP (for example, via your VoXaLot account), you can easily sign up with the e164.org ( Welcome to e164.org ) service (which also has a support forum here on VoXaLot), to register your inbound telco numbers with ENUM.

3) ENUM will only work if/when it is setup for that number (i.e. the called party has published their VoIP route in ENUM), and the caller is using a service (such as VoXaLot) that makes use of the public ENUM service. And since normal telcos don't generally use ENUM (or if/when they do, they often don't provide discounts to the caller for having done so), that means that a person is using a "normal phone" they will only benefit from ENUM if/when they use a third party servicet that supports ENUM. For example, ENUM calls can be completed (for no cost, beyond any telco charges to call the dialin number), via any of the SIP Broker dialin numbers:

What you did seems correct for a call using a SIP-Broker access number.

Can you please identify which Access number you called so somebody can test if it is working correctly?

Default Forwarding to Cellphone problem.

HI Martin,

This is my first time using Voxalot. I have a premium voxalot account because I thought I could forward all the voip call to my USA cellphone. I don't have any hardware but I am using the voxalot forward (call connection) method.

Here is what I did:

I called in one of the usa PSTN phone number and then *010 347562 and that number forward to my cell phone and ring, but when I received Phone call I don't here any sound for incoming phone or outgoing phone, and probably my pstn phone hung up after forwarding to my cell phone.

Setting that I created for voxalot forward method:

Priority:1
Active: yes
Matching Rule:

Match by: inbound number or provider
Time rule: day

Handling Logic:

Connect to: phone number
Phone number: my cellphone number#
provider: VoipStunt

Tell me if I created something wrong or is there anyway I can receive voip call to my cellphone.

Diagram

PSTN------voxalot number-----provider---forward to cell phone.

So far everything works but can't here any audio from both phone.

I used 2 phone to connect to each other. I called from PSTN number and voxalot forward to my cell phone number. but no Audio from both Place.

let me know how can you help me.

Respectfully,

Farid

Has this feature been implemented yet? If yes, how do I make it work?
For many reasons using an ATA phone is a no no for me (many family members sharing different lines and different cell phones), and this would be "The Ultimate" to make Voxalot complete.

Default Calling justvoip from access number

I assume I have missed something, so please let me know what else I need to do:

I have registered for the basic service and been assigned a 6-digit number.

I have entered my justvoip account details -- username, password, host address (sip.justvoip.com) and it shows as active.

I call a local sipbroker access number, enter *061 and my 6-digit number, and get a message saying that the personal extension is unavailable.

Any advice?
