Calling other VoIP Networks
Using a VoIP Phone, you can always call any other VoIP phone that's not registered with VoIPtalk by dialling their SIP address like so: UserID@voipdomain.com. This may be hard to do with most phones so VoIPtalk also provides some prefix codes that you can dial just before a User's ID to call them across another provider's network.
71 to dial a user on the FWD network
72 to dial a user on the iptel network
73 to dial a user on the DrayTEL network
*467 to dial a user on the Gossiptel network
*472 to dial a user on the Gradwell network
**747 to dial a user on the Internet Phone Company network
VoIPtalk also peers with SIP Broker allowing you to call virtually any VoIP user on any network using VoIPtalk. To use SIP Broker, simply dial this prefix:
followed by the prefix matching the VoIP provider on the SIP Broker listing and then complete the dialstring with the VoIP user's ID. For example to dial a VoIP user on the FWD network, you can dial:
**473*393543074 (where *393 is the SIP Broker prefix for FWD and 543074 is the VoIP user's ID).
The SIP Broker prefix for VoIPtalk is:
Access Number for non-VoIP/roaming users
Using a non-VoIP Phone, you can use your VoIPtalk account to make calls using our UK access number.
Our access numbers are:
0845 004 4044
020 7043 4044
When you dial one of the access numbers, you will be prompted for your VoIPtalk account ID and password. If your password is alphanumeric (ie combined text and numbers, such as 'my123') this can be dialled using the keypad on the phone (for example, number 2 is also A, B, C and 9 is W, X, Y or Z).
So, if entering the password "am123" using a keypad, you would enter "16123".
