So, I thought I'd throw this out and try to gather more help....
If any of you are in the telco world and could get us a good deal on connectivity, let me know.
There are two ways of going about it:
-- provide a number that just silently forwards to one of our existing numbers (not ideal)
-- provide a number that connects directly to our phone server over the net: VoIP, SIP, IAX... I'm not hot on all the details, but I could figure it out. (this is ideal)
We don't mind paying for it. Per-minute billing is probably ideal.
Feel free to reply either here or to me: firstname.lastname@example.org
