Turn Your Computer or Mobile Phone into a VoIP Extension
Every Virtual PBX system includes VoIP Anywhere technology, which can turn your cellular phone or computer into a full-featured Virtual PBX VoIP phone. With VoIP Anywhere and our award-winning open-systems approach, you can use any standard SIP softphone, from almost any vendor to make and receive calls over your data connection. We’ve reduced the bandwidth requirement so that high quality calls can be made over 3G, 4G and WiFi connections. You simply register your softphone as a VoIP device in our service, and open the softphone application to make calls.
All the Features, Plus Business Caller ID
All standard Virtual PBX features that are available to a VoIP extension are available to all calls to and from a softphone, like call recording, or choosing your caller ID. And softphone calls are included in your Virtual PBX business reports so you’ll always have records of every call. You can make outbound calls from your cellular phone without giving up your personal phone number. And call-backs go to your company number so you’ll know they are business calls. You protect yourself while looking more professional.
Save Money when Roaming
By making calls through your Virtual PBX system, you can save on roaming charges. Imagine being in Italy or Australia with your cell phone or computer. You may have free Wifi at the hotel or business you’re visiting, but normally, you’d have to use the hotel’s expensive international rates or pay huge amounts for international roaming on your cell phone. With VoIP Anywhere, you make calls through your softphone and WiFi connection, getting U.S. dial tone for free. Your calls home, to your office simply use your plan minutes.
Little to No Cost
Our flat-rate plans include the ability to add softphones at no charge. And any extension in a usage-based plan can be enabled to use VoIP, for both VoIP phones and softphones, for just $5 per month per extension. Minutes used on a soft phone are part of your plan. Flat-rate plans have no per-minute fees for calls to a softphone or to a destination in the continental U.S. or Canada (within our fair-use policy), and calls through usage-based plans simply use plan minutes.
To put a softphone on your Virtual PBX account, you should first download a softphone from a good provider. For the iPhone and Android platforms, the best idea is to use the apps we provide. To learn more about these apps, visit the iPhone and Android VoIP Apps page. Softphone apps for other platforms are available from a variety of other providers. For more information, see our VoIP support pages.
