VirtualPBX® Softphone App
VirtualPBX Softphone App for iOS and Android
Turn your smartphone into a fully-featured VoIP PBX softphone with the VirtualPBX Softphone app. You’ll be able to make and receive calls over your data connection, through your VirtualPBX system. Outbound calls will use your business Caller ID, not your personal number, and all of the great features of VirtualPBX business telephone systems are included with every call – including call recording, centralized voicemail, direct extension dialing, and much more.
Turn Any Computer, Device or Cell Phone into
a Full-Featured VoIP Extension
Every VirtualPBX system includes VoIP Anywhere technology, which can turn your cell phone, device or computer into a full-featured VirtualPBX 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. Simply register your softphone as a VoIP device in our service, and open the softphone application to make calls.
System Requirements: Windows 7, 8, 9 and Mac 8, 9, 10
All standard VirtualPBX features that are available to a VoIP system 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 VirtualPBX 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.
By making calls through your VirtualPBX system, you can save on roaming charges. Imagine being in Italy or Australia with your VoIP 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 a U.S. dial tone. Your calls home or to your office simply use your plan minutes.*
There is no need to worry about missing your personal calls while on a business VoIP call. When a personal call comes into your mobile device, your VoIP call will simply be put on hold until you answer or decline the incoming call. Your VirtualPBX Softphone can also play beep tones or an announcement to your callers put on hold to alert them.
All softphones (including 3rd party softphones) are registered as a metered line on your account and cost $4.99/month. Metered VoIP Lines use plan minutes for Anywhere Plans, and for Office Plans cost 3.6 cents per minute for 100+ lines, 3.7 cents for 20-99 lines, 3.8 cents for 2-19 lines, and 3.8 cents for 1 line. Desktop softphones are $39.99 and available for setup through our support team. Similar to the mobile versions, the desktop softphone is an added VoIP line on your VirtualPBX account.
To put a softphone on your VirtualPBX account, you should first download a softphone from a good provider. The best idea is to use the apps we provide which are available via Google Play, the Apple iTunes Store, and by appointment with our Account Services team for the desktop version. Softphone apps for other platforms are available from a variety of other providers. For more information, see our Softphone App Support pages.
