Get Your 25¢ DIDs!
From now until January 31, 2016, we are offering 25¢ DIDs with no porting or activation fees!! As an existing customer of VoIP Innovations, you can port numbers from other carriers into VoIP Innovations for free and the activation fees will be waived. Remember that we have Standard and Project (more than 50 numbers) Porting Specialists who are ready to assist you with any porting needs.

So the next time you find yourself in a bind, send them a quick message and they'll be ready to assist you.
