Re: Anveo call quality and review?

But for outgoing calling you have so many free choices. As long as you can set the caller ID to match your incoming number that is.

Free for outgoing? Google Voice is the only provider that I know of that offers free outgoing calls and they are taking a loss by offering it. You can get a free phone number and free incoming calls from several different sources.

The OP being from Canada has a couple of other options available from Fongo (freephoneline.ca and fongo.com)

Voxox, Freephoneline, Fongo, DellVoice...all have free outgoing. Probably many more. Of course they offer it on the pretext that you'll hopefully upgrade to something that you pay for.

As for a free incoming number I found it difficult to score that in anything but the larger North American cities (and most companies don't eve bother with Canada yet). If you live in a larger city you've very fortunate indeed.
What companies offer free phone lines (even in the US) that you've found? And do any allow you to forward the line to Skype so you don't even need a softphone?

Voxox outbound calls are 1.9 cents a minute to Canada and USA.

Freephoneline, Fongo, DellVoice Canada, are different faces of the same company.

Beggars cannot be choosers. If you are not willing to pay for an incoming DID, you have to accept what you can get!

Callcentric offers free NY DIDs. You can also get a free DID in the Seattle area from IPKALL (although you have to find a different provider that will give you a SIP address).

Regarding forwarding to Skype:

The problem is that this is _Skype_ who does NOT allow SIP forwarding to itself.

There are a few undocumented "holes" which can be explored/exploited in order to route calls to Skype, but those are not reliable and may be closed at any time.

Should Skype be willing to allow/accept SIP calls from other networks - then no problem, one may just use call treatments to SIP URI forwarding from any open network to Skype.
