help setting up a virtual phone number internationaly
« on: May 16, 2012, 06:45:25 AM »
I have an Israeli cell phone in israel, and I would like to get an american virtual phone number which all the calls can be forwarded to my Israeli mobile. Instead of people  having to call international using calling cards.

I having looked around, and the best rate I found was 0.06 cents a minute. No flat rate packages. I did find flat rate packages for landlines. But not for mobiles.

Anyone have any experience or knowledge in this field? I would prefer if tj solution was not through a app that should be used on a smartphone, as i prefer keeping my "kosher number".

Thanks

being that Israeli cell carriers offer free incoming, they bill the wireless expenses to the caller. (believe much of Europe is the same). any service offering flat-rate calls would be eating those fees. not likely.

(I'm assuming that spikko.net (not related to your needs) is working on the same model, considering you get credit based on received calls)

I have looked into them as well.

In my case they are 0.059 cents a minute plus 0.99 cent monthly. Fairly good. I am still looking for better.

However they do have a program or outoing calls which is amazing. The charge to the USA from Israel 0.005 cents a minute.. The way they work is, they create an Israeli local number for every international number you want to call. (or you can dial their local calling card access number)

But of courses this sucks for Israel as you get billed .49 agurot for every "un-kosher minute"

The new Golan unlimited should have kosher numbers too.
