Lazyweb - Telephone call
mini me + poo
I can find people who will, for a one-off fee of a tenner or less, give me an 0845 number and send calls to it to a 'voice over ip' system of my choice.

Does anyone, for a possibly larger but ideally still reasonable fee, do that with a UK 'geographic' number like 020 1234 5678?

Sipgate should do that for nothing, and if you have a SIP client/hardware/software it should just relay the calls through. Outgoing calls cost but less than BT for most of the time iirc.

Does that suit your purposes or have I misunderstood your request?

Sipgate give you a 03** number. However you do need to register the ability to make calls with them - which will cost you £10. Mind you the calls can be cheaper than a regular landline, particularly when you can abroad or are to another Sipgate customer (free).

We have regular geographic numbers (0121 currently) and I've set up an 0845 which I never authenticated through SipGate as a test number. As I understand it the £10 you pay to set up outgoing calls is put onto your account as credit...

Ah, this is it, thank you.

I'm not interested in talking (live) to callers, or taking messages, or making outgoing calls via this, just playing them pre-recorded messages using a phone tree managed by Asterisk sitting on a server somewhere.

You can get a UK geographic number on skype for £10/month. Is that the sort of thing you're looking for?

Not quite, I want to direct it to a virtual messagephone which will tell callers stuff according to which buttons they press. I'm not interested in talking to them or taking messages.

And I don't want to pay money to do this bit :)
