Call1899 Setup

Before starting, you must already have an account with Call1899; open an account with them at Set your SIP settings on your router as shown in the screenshots below (choose the picture corresponding to your own DrayTek Vigor model below). In all cases, replace the 'xxxx' in the diagram with your own Call1899 registered telephone number. The password to enter is your Call1899 account number.

One the router has registered with the Call1899 SIP server, you can make calls over the Call1899 service simply by lifting your handset, dialling the number (with full STD or International prefix) and ending with the # key. For example to dial a UK number it would be :

[ Lift Handset ] 020 8999 1234 #

or for a number in the USA :

[ Lift Handset ] 00 1 555 909 1234

That's all !

Note that Call1899 provides outgoing calls only - they do not currently provide a phone number for you to receive calls on.
