VoIP.ms is a voice over Internet protocol provider, our service requires an Internet Service Provider (ISP) and works through SIP/IAX2 protocols, if you wish to update your regular telephone service to a new improved system of voice over IP you will need to get an Internet connection, an ATA Adapter and a regular analog handset. Other options are using an IP Phone, a softphone or a PBX server.

VoIP.ms is a prepaid service that allows you to control your expenses, you can add funds with a minimum amount of $25 USD via Credit Card, PAyPal, Bank Wire ($500USD minimum) or Western Union ($100 USD minimum) and our system only accepts US dollars. Your payments will be added to your balance and your calls and other charges will be debited from that balance, every time you run low on balance you could repeat this process again.

and the outgoing calls will be charged always per minute depending on the termination of the calls:

Channels

The channels will let you place or receive simultaneous inbound or outbound calls, for default on new accounts we offer the following amount of channels:

Outgoing:

Channels: 5 simultaneous calls

Incoming:

Per Minute Plan:   25 simultaneous calls
Flat Rate Plan:     2 simultaneous calls
International DID:  2 simultaneous calls

Note:

For simultaneous calls to a same number all accounts have 2 channels. For example if you have a call forward to your cell phone (or any other number), no matter 
if your DID is under the Per minute plan you are allowed to forward only 2 calls to that number at the same time.
