I am currently on Orcon but not LLU.  I want to retain my Telecom homeline currently serviced  via orcon but would like to dable with SIP VOIP.  I can access  SIP fones OK..

 

If Orcon does not supply  this can anyone recommend someone who does as a fone service only .  I don't want to have to change BB provider..

TIA.

 

 





Regards,

Old3eyes

Orcon don't provide a SIP VoIP service (yet), it's all POTS over copper from the DSLAM.

Your choices are really VFX, 2talk, iTalk or MyNetFone.

Thanx folks for the info.  I'll check them out.

Looks like MyNetFone will be the best option as they have a prepay plan where as the  others require a monthly plan  espescially if you want an Auckland number.  Looks though that you can only set up an account  with MyNetFone if you purchase software / hardware first.  I have this so  have asked the obviouse.

2Talk have a prepay plan even for auckland numbers.
Top up by credit card then it will take $7 ish a month per number. Plus calling




Hmmmm

No they don't
1. No matter what plan you are on (free, 500 etc) All are prepay via creditcard.
2. If you have a free account you can add an AK number to it (It will just take from your balance the cost of the number once a month).




Hmmmm

Thanx david.

 

Just as a matter of interests the  IP fones listed on your website  http://www.3bitvoice.co.nz/category/ip_phone.aspx

Will these work with 2talk or are they PBXb dependent??

They will all work with 2talk. With a few exceptions any phone that is SIP compatible will work with any provider that uses the SIP protocol. You will always have some features that may not work if a manufacturer builds in proprietory features to work with their own PBX solution but for basic voice calling and the usual features such as DND / Call Forward things are all pretty much guaranteed to be compatible.
