PSTN dialing

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.
