Hi Guys

Just after some info.

I want to get a voip DND in Chch to use for mostly incoming calls so I have another number apart from the telecom one.

I have a Billion 7404 VGP-M router so its no problem to hook it up with my existing (australian) voip number.

Anyone recommend the cheapest/best/most reliable place to get a DND? preferably where I dont have to go on a plan or anything as it will be pretty much for incoming calls only.

I can get one from Oz for AU$5.00 a year but wondering if I can get a cheaper one here?

Thanks

maverick, will WxC do an inbound number only without the customer having a number in that region?

$5/year? I don't think you're going to get much cheaper than that :)

If you are a member of whirlpool.net.au forum you have access to special plans from MyNetFone.

They have a plan that you only pay for calls you use. No monthly fee but you pay $5 a year for the DID.

Yep I use these guys for my Christchurchch DID, it's a very reasonable price. They don't seem to offer a NZ service anymore though, it's all in Australian $$s. Funny thing was when they did it was NZ 5c/min to call nationally, but if you were an Australian customer it would cost AU 2c/min to call New Zealand, even with the $NZ the way it is it still works out cheaper to be an Australian customer.

I've also noticed they've added a few more locations too, when I joined up it was just Auckland, Chch and Wellington, but they've now got Dunedin and a couple of other places.

Ahh yeah I forgot about the Whirlpool plan, I'd recommended it to a few people for their AU numbers.

There is some benefit about being Australian :). I still have an Aussie bank account and credit card.

Yep I moved over here from across the pond too :) All of my customers are still over there so I get paid in $AU, I'm definitely not complaining about the current exchange rate!

One thing to watch out for when ordering from MyNetFone is if you're not already a customer they'll want a contact number to call and verify your details. They definitely call you too, I ordered it last time I was back in Australia and used a friend's (Australian) mobile number.
