3.) what are those strange access numbers for example the +371 67652206 for Riga. Can I use them to call other VoiP accounts and/or regular phone numbers for free somehow ?
1) SIP Broker is a service that interconnects thousands on VoIP networks by allocating a numeric code (SIP-Code) to each network. These codes are similar to area codes on the plain old telephone system.

For example to dial you would dial:

*393123456 (*393 is the SIP-Code for

Full list of SIP-Codes can be found HERE

1) Only VoIP accounts and soon to be released U.S. toll free numbers.

2) Easiest way to setup hardware to use SIP Broker is to setup an account on and follow the tutorials.

3) Access numbers are regular shared phone numbers available in over 20 countries. Anyone can dial these numbers and at the voice prompt dial a VoIP number as described in 1) above e.g. *393123456
