What is Rule Based CallerID?
The service lets you set a CallerID on outgoing calls to receive return calls from those you call. You can set a default callerID for all calls, which could be your Indian mobile or landline number in full international format (e.g.: +91 22 2555 1234). You can also use your online console to set rule based CallerID Settings. E.g. You could set a different CallerID for destinations beginning with 1212. When you then call a number beginning with +1212, the callerID will be as per this rule, rather than the default callerID. You can also choose "Existing" which allows you to set the callerID from your softphone/SIP device. You can have multiple such rules. You must set valid callerIDs in each.
Setting Rule Based CallerID
What is meant by multiple virtual numbers?
You can subscribe to multiple numbers (DIDs) from thousands of cities worldwide. These numbers can be used to set callerID. When someone calls these numbers, they are returned as SIP/VoIP incoming calls to you. Your online console allows you to choose the city for the number you want.
Subscribing to virtual numbers & call forwarding
What is call forwarding?
When your SIP phone is registered to our network, then calls to your virtual numbers are sent to your SIP phone as incoming calls. If however the SIP device is not registered, or your Internet connection is not functioning, or your SIP device is busy or unavailable, these calls are sent to any phone you set in the "Forwarding number" section in the screenshot above. This can be your Indian mobile phone or Landline. The calls to these are received as normal ISD calls from abroad. This feature is available in only some plans.
What is Line hunting?
When your SIP device is not available to take calls, incoming calls can be forwarded to other SIP accounts. You can chain multiple such accounts to create a hunting group, in which each account is tried in turn. The first available SIP device is sent the call.
