Setup an SIPBroker Alias Number
You can now expand the use of your VoIP service by linking your favorite
VoIP account with a SIPBroker alias number. The alias number is important
because it enables you to link your phone with the hundreds of local access numbers that
can be called from numerous countries for free. It is similar to an extension number.
The SIPBroker alias number converts the e-mail style of a normal SIP address with a
numerical sequence such as: sip:email@example.com with *0112211
This enables anyone to call an SIPBroker local access number, dial *0112211 and ring your
phone. It requires the caller to enter a few extra numbers, but its 100% free.
