Hiya Folks,

Strange request. I want to use Twilio for a project but I need inbound free calling. Twilio will not provide 0800/0508 yet which means I need to find some other way.

Does anyone know if there is a provider who could give me a toll free number and then route that number straight through to a standard NZ number. Ideally I`d like someone who could pass through the caller identity ; ideally spoofing the identity of the original caller so I can get caller ID on Twilio.

Your thoughts gladly accepted.

That's an 0800 or 0508 number does - point to another regular number. There is also no need to "spoof" the CID (which is illegal anyway) though as once again that's how CID works - it passes the A party CID on an 0800/0508.

Sounds likely you simply need to approach anybody who resells 0800 or 0508 numbers and apply for you.

2Talk will allocate you a toll free 0800 for $20 /month as well as give calling packages to pay for the 0800 calls more efficiently.

They can either present the 0800 number as a DDI or just call forward as it normally would. CID is not a problem because, as sbiddle says, that is just how it works.
