Default Free California & Brazil Incoming Number??

I'm trying to find free incoming phone numbers for two places:
. San Jose, California (408)
. Salvador, Brazil (71)

I've looked at Globe7 and also TPad who give out free numbers, but you cannot choose the area code without paying. I want the Sipgate equivalent in US and Brazil. Anyone know of any providers?

Default Free incoming Peru number?

I am looking for the same in Peru: A free incoming SIP number.

The providers I know want to charge at least 11 dollars a month just for the number.

Until now I use Tpad's break in number. But it could be better.

If you don't mind 2-stage dialing (i.e. user first calls the PSTN number, and then at the voice prompt dials *010 followed by your VoXaLot number), there are SIPBroker - PSTN Numbers in both of those locations (however, this won't help the person wanting a Peru DID, as there is not currently any SIP Broker PSTN numbers in Peru).

There is no signup needed to use those numbers, and the costs are covered by the VoIP companies sponsoring those DIDs (which company sponsors which DID are shown on the SIP Broker PSTN page). However, you will have to explain to the people calling you, about the unique dialing sequence.

BTW: The way I've personally found it easiest to explain the PSTN number use/dialing to "normal people" (who don't have experience with SIP Broker or VoIP) is to say that the PSTN number reaches a "phone system", and you still have to enter my "phone extension" (at the voice prompt) to reach me. And my "phone extension" is: *01... (i.e. I tell them my "extension" is whatever SIP Broker dialing sequence will reach my VoIP account). In my experience, most friends/family that can't wrap their head around VoIP (much less SIP Broker), still have no problems understanding what a "phone extension" is (as they have gotten used to calling "extensions", when interacting with businesses that have their own phone systems)!

Besides sipbroker free access number in Salvador/Brazil you will not find any free DID. Brazil is just starting the VoIP revolution, with just a few legal and experimental local companies. Maybe you can find some very cheap DID (for you, due to currency rate) if you buy the service directly here, from the brazilian provider.

Almost all Brazilian providers are here:
Canal VoIP - Convergência Digital

Seems that www.tmais.com.br have it.

Good luck!

Voicestick has 10 exchanges in 408 area code

But there's a thread here about not getting it working with Voxalot.

Thanks for all your help. Maybe the SIPBroker way is best.
