Our system is designed to enhance your phone service and not to replace it. We only service your incoming calls since the system is virtual and doesn't provide dial tone. Your everyday outgoing calls will have to remain with a local and/or long distance provider. The extensions of our system are able to forward to your choice of existing phones (i.e., home phones, office phones, landlines, VoIP, and/or cell phones). Therefore, you'll also need to have a telephone number to be able to receive forwarded calls through our system. This means that you'll need to keep your local service even if at minimum.
