    ok mate no probs, if it helps though you can install voip apps on mobiles and use your data allowance, just a thought cuz you can get a free landline voip number (goegraphic based) from sipgate for free!

    well you dont actually need to transfer it anywhere.

    if you just want to use it with a landline phone, buy a siemens gigaset a580 its a combined pstn and voip phone meaning you can plug it into a landline and use a landline number, but also plug it into a modem / router and use your sipgate number on it also.

    you can use that phone anywhere that has a broadband connection and you can even use software on the pc / laptop / mobile to use it as long as you have a net connection, people will just dial it like an ordinary hone number.


    hope this helps.

    if 0191 or 01913 is a uk goegraphical number eg (0207) then yeah you can pick a free number from any town you want in the uk.

    for instance i`m in blackburn and picked 01254 310XXX for my voip number and people can use it on there inclusive minutes as well
