You can use up to 5 phones with a single BasicTalk line. With BasicTalk you get unlimited calling within the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico (Reasonable Use Policy applies), but outbound international calling is not available, although incoming calls from anywhere in the world will be completed to your BasicTalk line. You can learn more at http://BasicTalk.com.

THIS UNIT WORKS AS A GATEWAY TO YOUR INTERNET FOR VOIP SERVICE. THE NUMBER OF PHONES IS NOT LIMITED.

Other factors such as your wireless phone or the number of jacks in your home will limit the number of phones you use... but, that can be expanded by adding jacks or wireless phone systems.

GO TO www.BasicTalk.com for complete details.

Yes, you can change your existing BasicTalk phone number to a different one by obtaining a new phone number or by transferring the phone number from another carrier. Learn more by going to http://bit.ly/14UhPUK.

Change to a new number altogether, then no. To change to your previous provider number, then you have to keep your previous provider account active until your old number port over. It only took three days for my home number to port over.

ABSOLUTELY... just go to the webpage provided for users and go to your account. Follow the directions there for changing your phone number. If your number is still available, that is, if you haven't disconnected that number from your traditional service or it hasn't been reassigned, it is still available to be transferred. The transfer process can take up to a week but is usually faster.

My understanding is that it is $9.99, anything more than that is going to be taxes and LOCAL fees that Basic Talk has no control over.
