Title: Hawaii DID Numbers
Post by: Lavarock7 on June 10, 2015, 08:07:33 am
Many Voip services do not offer Hawaii (area code 808) numbers. Voip.Ms does and their rates are quite cheap considering.

Often some of the islands will be listed as "carrier order" which will take a little while to acquire and at a slightly higher cost. Alternatively, nobody seems to know which island a particular number is on so you could choose any island. HawaiianTel, which will nickle and dime you on every service offers unlimited dialing on your own island and an upcharge to dial the rest of the state. This is why many people just use cellphones or Voip. So you might consider getting a telephone number of your own island just to help out those poor souls stuck with expensive onisland calling from HawaiianTel.

Very old topic, but in case anyone's interested, I was able to obtain a Wailuku (Maui) number for my buddy over there, from Callcentric.  Level 3 is the CLEC hosting the number on 808-495.  As with voip.ms, CC had to order it, but it only took a few days.  Crystal-clear calling, thanks to his OBi attached to cable internet service.
