I'm thinking of using them to get an American number while traveling to Israel, so I can forward calls from my US phone number to my Israeli cell phone there.

Can anyone tell me more about this company from personal experience?

@ExGingi if you are still with them I would love to find out more.
Never ended up using them, and never looked into using them the way you describe (so I can't tell you if it's cost efficient). I wanted to use them to get an Israeli number so I can receive sms from Israel at nothing but the monthly charge for the DID ,but ended up getting a full refund from them after they insisted on a copy of my ID which I refused

It means you have to take the ₪99 from Golan or pay $15/month, IINM. Depending on your usage, this may be cheaper, and provides greater flexibility.

If you're planning on being in Israel for an extended period of time and having a smartphone, I think porting your US number to Hangouts may be simpler and cheaper. I find I get better call quality to the States through Hangouts on the US listeners side, too.

I don't want to use Hangouts (even though my number is already ported there). Can anyone recommend a good service?

Golan telecom 99 shekel works great for me and you can easily forward your regular American number to the dsl number they provide you with. but like it was mentioned, this doesn't work for sms.

You don't pay an additional $15 for the American number added?

Golan is one of the more expensive phone plans when it comes for a data plan.
 Vs hot mobile data plans starting at 29NIS, but only downside is they don't offer any american numbers.

 Golan has some decent sales at time to time, And offers or did offer unlmt to the US/CANADA.

Thanks everyone for your input.

In the end I decided to go with Callcentric. 2 per minute.
