Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You need to be subscribed to a voip service provider. Than you need to enter the following information into the softphone:
-Provider domain name or IP address
-Your username (this can be a normal phone number)
-Your password

(you will get all this informations from the service provider)

That’s all, you can begin to call.

For example if you use <a href=”http://www.mizu-softphone.com/Download.aspx”> Mizu Softphone </a>, than you simply go to File Menu -> Basic Settings, enter this informations, hit the save button and start calling.

    It depends on which softphone you are using. The phone needs to connect to a server, and the server needs to have that unique number configured so it knows where to route calls.
