Once you have done this, have in mind what exactly you want to do with your service. When you log in for the first time it will be important to check the Account Settings so you can get familiar with the options offered to configure your line.


How to Cancel an Account

We will go the extra mile to try and help you with any problem that may be making you think of cancelling our service so please give us a chance to resolve any outstanding issue you may have.

If you still need to cancel you account please make sure you have deleted your DID Number in the Customer Portal>> DID Numbers>> DID Billing and if you ported the number to another provider it is important to mark this appropriately when you delete your DID.

Once you have deleted your DID Number you can send an email to Support@voip.ms to officially request your account to be cancelled. If you have any funds in the account they will be refunded back to you within 7 business days.


How To Add Funds

In order to use VoIP.ms services for sending and receiving calls, you will need to add funds to your account. Please note this is a pre-paid service. The amount added will be reflected in the Account Balance. Please look for this option under the "Finances" link on the menu bar in your Customer Portal here Add Funds.

Adding funds is a simple procedure, click on Finances --> Add Funds in the customer portal. Make a payment with any of the available payment options such as Credit Card or Paypal. The minimum amount to add is $25 USD. Contact VoIP.ms staff for the information needed to send a payment using Western Union or a Bank Wire.


You can also monitor your existing account balance, to monitor your expenses please visit the following article calculate my expenses


Remember that with VoIP.ms, the inbound and outbound calls are charged separately. For example, if you take a US DID number (for receiving calls), the cost can be $0.99 a month and $0.01 per minute. All of your outbound calls will still be charged as per the Termination Rates. For example, calling a US48 number is $0.0105 per minute.

How to Check an Outbound Termination Rate / Per Minute Rate

You want to know how much you will pay when calling to a specific number? You need to visit the Rates Section in the customer portal, and you have some fields that will make your search quicker:

the Premium route with a rate of $0.01 (one cent) per minute.

How to Set up Voicemail

Setting up Voicemail Mailbox(es) is simple if you follow this guideline.

Step 1: Create your Voicemail Mailbox here Customer Portal>> DID Numbers>> Voicemail

Here is a Wiki Guide that explains all of the options http://wiki.voip.ms/article/Voicemail

Step 2: Assign the Voicemail Mailbox to your DID. After you have created your Voice Mail entry, you can assign it to any of your DIDs from your main portal. Please refer to DID Numbers -> Manage DID -> Edit DID -> Voicemail Field which is below the Additional Failovers option.

Also under the same screen you can set the Dial Time Out (The maximum amount of time a call to your DID can stay in "Ringing State" before we cancel the call to 
no answer).  Please note that 30s equals to 6 rings so 1 ring for every 5 seconds.


Step 3: If you would like to assign a Voicemail entry to your Main Account, please from your main portal refer to Main Menu -> Account Settings -> General -> Voicemail Associated to the Main Account.

If you need to assign a Voicemail to a specific subaccount, you need to go to the Sub Accounts Edit page, following the route, Subaccounts >> Manage Subaccounts >> Edit, from the menu tabs.

You will see at the bottom of the page the "Internal Extension Voicemail" option. Here you can set it.

Notes

With us the INCOMING and OUTGOING calls are charged and handled SEPARATELY, the incoming calls are charged depending on the plan of the DID 
and the outgoing calls will be charged always per minute depending on the termination of the calls

Also note that it is not necessary to have a DID to start placing outgoing calls, a DID number is meant for receive calls only and by registering correctly your device 
you can start making calls.
In order to receive calls properly the registration server and the POP of the DID number must match, i.e. If your device/softphone is registered to dallas.voip.ms 
the POP of the DID must have the Point of Presense to Dallas as well.
