Default Any Ideas!! Webcall to dial at specific time daily

I will be going out of town and would like to use the webcallback feature to call home at a specific time eachday while I'm away.

There is no internet access, sipbroker access or mobile web access where I will be just a local landline. So I was wondering if there is a way I can setup webcallback before I leave so I get called at the local number where I will be visiting at a specific time everyday so I can talk to my family while I am away.

Wondering if anyone has any ideas on how I may do this? I am also content with a non-voxalot solution.

How about having your voxalot webcallback page setup on a machine at home and having one of your family initiate the call?

To make this easier, you can have voxalot remember your login, your family member only has to click on an entry in your web callback that you set up before you go. Of course, they have to remember to make the call.

I am not sure how long a delay can be used with web callback, but that might be another option. Perhaps Martin can tell us the maximum number that can be used in the delay field. If the number is big enough, you can pre-schedule calls for each day before you leave, hopefully you get the timing right.... not much use if the timing is out.

The max call-back delay is 99 secs. VoXRoam is a service we have in beta test which would have suited your needs. Unfortunately this option is not yet available to the public.

I'm not clear why you are unable to use one of the SIP Broker access numbers and dial *010<voxalot number>?

Edit: There is a bunch of numbers HERE

Thanks for the reply, webcallback delay didn't really serve my purpose and the country I am travelling to does not have a sipbroker access number. I also took a look at Jajah and their rates are way too high. I decided to use other alternatives, but thanks everyone for your ideas.

Which other alternatives?

Was the idea to get your family to initate the call from home not going to work for you?

Default new Voxalot SMS feature?

I already did feature requests to other providers but till now no one did built it. I have the same problem when I am travelling. I would like to have a call back feature by SMS!
It should be nice if Voxalot could receive SMS and initiate a call between two given numbers. Voxalot can identify me by the mobile number and setup a call between the first and the second number.
Not very difficult to built this service I guess. But there are other more important features to built first...

I decided to use the missed/ANI callback feature offered by mywebcalls.com. You dial a phone number; get a busy tone so I don't get charged but it authenticates my number; calls me back and provides me with a dial tone to call home. I decided not to ask my family to initiate the call because if they know how to reach me they will call every second and it kind of defeats the purpose of going away. All I have to do is setup the number I will be dialing from on the mywebcalls account page, either before I leave or as soon as I get there.

Pelikano:
mywebcalls.com has good rates and also offer sms callback

This is a good service... is the future "VoXRoam"?
