Frequently Asked Questions

Is it really possible to replace an office PBX with this service?

Yes, most smart phones today are good enough to replace desktop phones. All of the PBX features are the same as an office PBX but instead of a large handset attached to an office network it uses a wireless mobile connection using GSM, WiFi or 3G. With auto routing and diverts, single number reach it is easy to run a business using a mobile PBX service.

How does network selection / handoff work?

The phone can be configured to favour GSM or Voip2Air. When either one isn't available the other will take over automatically. So if there is no GSM or 3/4G at your house but you have WiFi, the phone will use that for calls. The priority can be set for minimum cost.

What is the mobile voip call quality like?

Voip2Air has designed the mobile voip infrastructure specifically to maximise call quality. This includes using uncompressed voice, a low latency network, high quality Cisco network components and constant monitoring. You can always try it before you buy using our free trial to satisfy yourself. In our experience WiFi and GSM are best in terms of quality.

How much does it cost?

Pricing is based on a cost per person per month this includes all features and technical support. Call charges are billed separately. There are no other costs.

Which phones does it work with?

Voip2Air currently supports all Windows Mobile 6 onwards devices (e.g. HTC, ASUS, HP, Samsung) all Nokia E series and some N series phones, Android phones and iPhone. In most circumstances any SIP client on a mobile is supported.

How does provisioning work?

First the phone needs a SIP configuration which we email to your you. There are some instructions on our web site for all types of supported phone or our technical support team can talk you through this. Secondly the phone needs to register using a wireless network. When registered you are ready to make and take calls. The whole process takes 2-3 minutes per phone.

How am I billed for the service?

Billing is done every month the fee is billed in advance, the calls are paid using a prepaid credit. We can also provide a post pay billing arrangement based on credit status as well. All calls are accessible via the on line portal.

What levels of failover and resilience are there?

There is no single point of failure in terms of data centre, softswitch servers, internet pipe, PSTN trunks, network components. If there was a problem with your 3G or broadband circuit we can route to your mobile phone using the GSM network. We can even route calls to a SIP hand set or PC softphone if you mobile develops a fault.
