Dialing from Home Phone, Cell Phone...or PC

Written by 

OneSuite has been known for its super low rates, but can you take advantage of the low rates if there’s no local access number in your area? Sure! For those of you who have been dialing out from our toll-free numbers, you can make calls at local access rates through our Broadband Access. It’s easy, simple and FREE!

Just download OneSuite SoftPhone from our website and start calling out from your PC! It will only take a few minutes and can save you big bucks.

Better yet, now you can travel anywhere and still make calls at local access rates, as long as high-speed Internet is available. Or during high call volumn when your call can't ge through, you can dial out from PC. No need to dial any local or toll-free access numbers or PINs. Just call!

Many of our customers have already taken advantage of this access and started saving. Now it’s your turn to give it a try and save more with us! Visit our FAQ page for more information about SoftPhone and Broadband Access.


OneSuite’s Broadband access does not support or carry 911 emergency calls to any type of emergency services.

    Local access rates means you use a Onesuite local access number in the US and Canada for making your call thus your rate will be based on local access.

    Onesuite have access numbers too outside of US and we call it International Access numbers. In your case, if you are in the Caribbean, you can use Onesuite Broadband Access via internet to make calls.

    Onesuite softphone should work in most countries except for those that blocks VoIP traffic like some countries in the middle east.

    Just wanted to know if your software will work anywhere in the world. I live in the Caribbean, When you say local access rates, you mean the rates of whatever country you are in?

    Hi, Clive

    I've tested Google Voice a few times using wifi on my mobile phone calling OneSuite local access number, then dialing my PIN and international number. The calls went through without a problem. The quality is decent. There seemes to be no problem using Google voice with OneSuite VoIP as it connects all of my 5 test calls.

    If you still run into problems with Google Voice, I'd suggest that you give Fring a try. I also made a couple of test calls using Fring. The call went through and the voice quality was also better.

    I'm making this suggestion based on the following:

    1. With Google Voice, you need another phone number for Google Voice to connect your call, whether it's another VoIP service or landline or a free DID service like Gizmo. You can not use Google Voice alone. So technically, you are not talking through the mobile phone but rather through a headset using another VoIP inbound service or a landline.

    2. With Google Voice, your call is connected through a series of network (WiFi/GPRS/HSDPA, Google Voice, Landline or another VoIP service, OneSuite prepaid service, Termination number) which can affect the quality of the call or the connection itself.

    3. Using Fring and OneSuite VoIP will guarantee the cheapest OneSuite rates especially when making an international call.

    4. Fring will also make the calling process easier. No dialing of OneSuite access number and PIN.

    Pls visit my post regarding Fring installation on mobile phones: http://blog.onesuite.com/?p=569

    My two cents. Hope that helps.

    Tim, thanks for the link. I already downloaded the mobile version of SJphone. I just need to install and see if it's going to work on my Windows Mobile phone. I'm just curious why this version isn't available on SJphone website.

    Sorry for not responding in a timely manner.I just did not know there was a message to me. Anyway, if you have not found the win mobile version of SJPhone, here it is : http://www.freewarepocketpc.net/ppc-download-sjphone-v1-60-303c.html.
    It is a freeware. As I said, it worked on my Dell Axim X50V.

    I seem to be having more and more issues dialing my onesuite account on my sprint phone using google voice. It regularly doesn't recognize my pin number and often is busy for the international call? Any ideas?

    Tim Horton :@Tim HortonZee,I have the Telbox. I have seen driver available for SJPhone, so I am quite sure it would work for Onesuite. I have not try it since I have both Onesuite and Skype working on my Nokia cell phone already. I also used Onesuite with my Dell Axim pocket pc using the win mobile version of SJPhone.Tim

    Hi Tim, I didn't know there's a Win mobile version of SJphone. Is that a freeware or you paid for it? I remember last year or a couple of years ago (before Fring came out) I was looking for a softphone on my XDA2i to try with Onesuite VoIP but I can't find any.

    Hi Tim, I'm also waiting for the article on ATA device. I have an ATA here lying around and can't wait to see if it's going to work with Onesuite or not.

    Thanks for the recent expanded coverage on other softphones. I do understand you cannot officially support everything out there, but bringing awareness of other options to your customers is the least you should do. If someone is interested in freeing him/herself from the headphone/mic or sitting in front of a pc while conversing, now they know where to go to do their homework.

    I think Onesuite VoIP service can also be use in Mac computers as long as you have the Mac softphone installed. I never use Mac in my life but based on my understanding, you may use any VoIP service you wish to use as long as you have a softp

    @Tim Horton
    Dear Customer,

    Thanks for your feedback. We appreciate your suggestions, but please keep in mind that there are a lot of industry regulations and legal issues that OneSuite needs to be aware of and comply to during product development.

    OneSuite VoIP can be used with other mobile devices or IP phones. We have many customers that are using SuiteAdvantage service with other devices, gateway or SIP and can be found in different forums. However, depending on the device and SIP client you’re using, there will be compatability and support issues. It will be impossible for us to provide technical and customer support on these hundreds of variations. For example, Fring only works with iPhone or iPod Touch 2nd generation, Blackberry is not allowing any SIP Client, and Microsoft Windows Mobile is doing the same. This is a recent article for your reference: http://www.itworld.com/mobile-amp-wireless/67492/microsoft-forbid-voip-rival-stores-mobile-market. Please kindly let us know exactly what devices or SIP Clients you are interested so we could also share the solution or alternatives with other readers.

    We do appreciate your input and have requested our contributing author Michael to work on a series on 3rd-party softphones that can be installed on Mac or Linux platforms, and instructions on configuring adaptors to home phones to make VoIP calls will follow.

    Please continue to visit our blog and give us feedback, as we continue to improve our products and services.

    Thank you,
    OneSuite Blog Support

    You guys are amazing. Keep on pushing softphone on pcs and not even macs. There is a big population out there that travel with macs, smart phones and other mobile devices that are voip capable. I would think it would be to your advantage to tap into that market. Instead, I see this blog just dance around the subject. Last time I responded on this subject, my comments were put on hold for "pending review by moderator" or something like that. Of course it was eventually dumped. So, I expect this will be dumped too.
