Virtual number to forward to international phones
« on: August 29, 2017, 01:24:24 AM »
Any ideas of an online service that I can get an American number that would forward to israeli or UK cellphone with unlimited incoming minutes? Saw many websites that offer such things but can't seem to find any with unlimited plans.

Isn't RebTel for placing calls to an international destination, like a calling card? How would that work to have people in america reach me with a local number in either Israel or UK?

I'm just thinking...
If you have your israeli number as primary on the account, add your google voice number as a direct contact, have google voice set all calls to display GV#, forward google voice to RebTel direct number?

Have GV forward to Hangouts

You would need a smartphone with data to receive the calls

I tried adding two different GV numbers, but couldn't verify them. I didn't receive the call/text.

isn't it easier to have a plan with Golan that has a US number?
If you want flexibility set, up your own Voip account with voip.ms for example and forward the calls to wherever you want, but you will pay per 6 sec intervals.

Depending on the call volume can end up very costly

That's true. Is he handling all his calls on his cell? If it's such a high volume it shouldn't be on a cell.
It costs the provider money to forwards the calls to any PSTN so one way or another you will pay for it.

thats why I mentioned I am looking for an unlimited plan, don't think any pay per minute would work. I know the cell phones stores are selling these numbers with unlimited minutes for $15 a month, but why don't any of the online VoIP providers have the unlimited options which should work out cheaper than the local stores
