Select "SIP" in the menu and decide whether to port an existing number range or order new numbers.
In both cases, you will be provided with a test connection with 10 extensions for the ProCall Voice Services until the numbers are finally provided.

The dialed numbers can be used for 30 days without providing billing information.
Porting of existing numbers is possible free of charge.
If you want to port your numbers, fill out the order and save your information.
STARFACE adds 500 free minutes to the German landline and mobile network to its SIP trunk as standard.
Then there are 2 variants:
- The customer immediately submits a SEPA mandate: He then receives an additional 500 free minutes and chargeable calls are also possible or
- The customer does not issue a SEPA mandate. Then he can only use up the free minutes. All chargeable call types are blocked.
The free minutes expire after 30 days. If no payment data is provided by then, the trunk will be blocked after 30 days.
Customer and partner will receive regular mail information about the status.
