Nettalk Call Forwarding: Can I forward to a VOIP number?
I'm trying to forward my Canadian Nettalk number (on their website) to a VOIP number (in Canada). When I select Yes when it asks me if its a VOIP number the next screen says "Invalid Destination Format". When I tried setting it to No it worked for a while. Then stopped. I reset it and it worked again. Now its not working at all. Is this supposed to work? Voicemail and other features are fine.
It also says you can forward to a SIP number. If anyone has done that can you let me know if it worked OK? I've got a SIP number but I have to look up all the settings to input the data.
I have my Nettalk account(s) try the primary number (device) followed by a second try (forward) to ring a VoIP DID(set to no). Still works fine after two years. Don't forget that it takes a bit of time trying the first destination before it attempts the secondary.
If you set the VoIP to 'yes' then you must enter the SIP address for that destination. I prefer to just forward as if it is a POTS DID. From memory, I found it worked more reliably, way back when.
I didn't realize the "yes to VOIP" was SIP related. More great web design! That's starting to make sense now. Many thanks. I was trying to get it to go to Freephoneline but they won't give out SIP info for free. I'll try Callcentric. Hopefully that will work.
