Also, you have to pay them $25 for credit to get started and buy a number
You do not have to buy a phone number. You may have chosen to get one. VirtualDiD is .25c a month(hardly worth complaining about) and Inum's are free. Service could just be used for outbound calling with no inbound number at all which is how I use it. I complained silently about the $25 deposit at first but after 2 years of use and still haven't had to replenish account that stopped a long time.
