== PSTN outbound dialing ==

To make calls to PSTN destinations add credit to your SIP account at

To dial a PSTN destination dial +NUMBER. The NUMBER must be a fully qualified E.164 number (country code + network number + subscriber number). First an ENUM lookup is attempted. If a SIP destination is found, the call will be routed to it, if ENUM lookup does not return a valid SIP address, the call is directed to a PSTN gateway. To use the PSTN gateway you must have a positive credit. To add credit for your account login to the SIP settings page and click on Credit tab.

Price list for dialing to PSTN destinations is available [ here]. The call costs are logged in the Credit section of your [ SIP settings page].

== PSTN inbound ==

As you own a publicly reachable SIP address, you may receive calls from any SIP device that knows your address including a PSTN gateway. You can receive calls from PSTN if you own a telephone number (not provided by this service) and if the SIP gateway provider that handles that number can translate that number into your SIP address. Technically if you number is in public ENUM e164.arap tree you can simply map your ENUM number to your SIP address. Any ENUM ready gateway will be able to automatically find the SIP address you configured for your ENUM number.
