No typos. I just tested Denetron & Tollfreeproxy and they are not working, so Arctele and Alcazarnetworks are the only tf providers working for me.

Thanks, Robert; I appreciate it.

Thanks for the heads up, I switched to:
    tf.arctele.com   
and NoMoRobo is working again, answering the Bad Guys for me.

I now use "tf.arctele.com" (tollfreeproxy stopped working) for toll free numbers and it seems to work well.  Account holders at localphone.com and voip.ms are allowed toll free # termination. I have accounts at both and they are both setup as a gateways on Obi100, not sure how to set that up with this config (1866732XXXX@tf.arctele.com;ui=$1) should tf.arctele.com stop service.

I can't figure out how you guys are getting tf.arctele.com to work. I haven't tried configuring it as a gateway yet since I don't have that need.

I've been trying to use it as both a speed dial (to check specific numbers via Nomorobo) and also as part of a VoIP.ms ring group to run incoming calls through Nomorobo. Neither case works for me the way sip.tollfreeproxy.com used to.

However, tollfree.alcazarnetworks.com works great for me in all instances. So I don't really need arctele but it would be nice to have a reliable backup since it seems like tollfree sites are rapidly diminishing.

Also, toll free calls are working again using Sip Broker at Callcentric but still doesn't seem to be working with VoIP.ms.

I'm using it to fork the nomorobo calls in Voice Service-->SPx-->X_InboundCallRoute:


{(5nnnnnnnnn|6nnnnnnnnn|6nnnnnnnnn):aa},{ph1,sp2(18667326184@tf.arctele.com:5060;ui=$1)}


I did not test whether or not the port 5060 suffix made a difference, but it was listed on arctele's website that way.

SIP Broker is another option. It was down, but it's fixed now.
See: http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r31132671-General-SIP-Broker-Toll-Free-termination-via-CC-peering

You need to prefix the NoMoRobo number with a star like this:
spx(*1866732XXXX@sipbroker.com;ui=$1)

I had a config conflict when testing Denetron. It's now working for me.
Here is my list of tollfree providers:
tf.arctele.com
tollfree.alcazarnetworks.com
sip.denetron.com
sipbroker.com (prefix number with "*")

Thanks for the info.

Turns out my problem when trying to use tf.arctele.com was that I wasn't prepending a "1" to the number.

All the tollfree providers you listed are now working fine for me.

However, Sip Broker still doesn't work on VoIP.ms using either network peering (**275*1800XXXXXXX) or SIP URI (1800XXXXXXX@sipbroker.com).

I never had a VoIP.ms account, but I assume the SIP URI should begin with an "*".

I appreciate that this is an old thread.

It appears that these services no longer work, at least not without registration.

tollfree.alcazarnetworks.com = 503 Contact Alcazar Networks 8YY calls require authentication
sipbroker.com = We're sorry. The Zip code you have dialed is not correct.


I suspect new rules require EIN/TIN verification.

Does anyone know of a toll-free termination service that passes CID and works without registration for free?

You can use (213)546-0198 (in a speed dial) to test with as it's an active robocaller number that Nomorobo blocks.

spX(18667326185@switch.starcompartners.com;ui=2135460198)

Thank you very much.

I had been using speed dials to test with ovh.starcompartners.com, which wasn't working for me. Now it suddenly is (I edited my previous post to reflect that), and switch.starcompartners.com works as well.

I appreciate your help. Thanks.
