Big Caller ID improvements

Posted in News

EasyRinger recently released improvements to caller ID. In the past, you had two Caller ID options:

1) The calling number or

2) Your EasyRinger number

While this covers most subscribers’ needs, there’s even more flexibility now: You can now set your caller ID to any EasyRinger number that you own. If you own multiple EasyRinger numbers, then you can use any of those other numbers as your caller ID for a given number. There are lots of uses that subscribers with multiple numbers can devise for this – maybe some of your numbers will use the same caller ID in order to distinguish a certain class of calls, for example. Another example is to use a caller ID in a different country to reduce the cost of your calls – look for more details on that in a future post!

Great news for subscribers forwarding to the EU

Posted in News

If you have noticed high calling rates when forwarding from overseas to the EU, there is now a legitimate way to avoid these higher charges:  Use an EU number as your caller ID!  That’s all there is to it.  Please note that you can’t use any EU number – the number must be a confirmed and verified number.  The best way to do this is to have a low-cost EasyRinger EU number (typically in the UK, since numbers they are the cheapest in the EU) that is used as your caller ID.  Here’s an example of how it works:

Let’s say that you have a US number and you forward to Germany.  Because your caller ID is typically the calling number, the EU telco carriers notice this and bills you at an overseas rate.  But, with this little trick, you purchase an EasyRinger in the UK and then set the caller ID for your USA number, to be the UK number.  This way, when someone calls your EasyRinger number in the USA, your caller ID shows your UK number and the EU telco carriers bill as if you’re calling within the EU. That’s all there is to it!

This is all made possible by being able to select any of your EasyRinger numbers as your caller ID, a feature that was recently released to all subscribers.
