If I walk out of Wi-Fi range, will I lose my call?
No. Our system automatically senses the strength of the Wi-Fi signal and will seamlessly switch your call to your cellular provider before the signal deteriorates.
Will my cellphone work with my Wi-Fi network?
Yes. If you’re mobile device is Wi-Fi enabled, chances are that it is compatible with our systems. We are constantly adding to a growing list of compatible mobile devices, so many in fact that we need to constantly update our list.
I often travel to the US or Europe and need to pay for expensive cellular time. Will I be able to use my mobile device in foreign countries?
Yes. As long as you have a reliable Wi-Fi connection, whether you are in a hotel in Amsterdam or sitting in your backyard, our TruMobility service provides you with the same connectivity and visibility as if you were in the office.
So, if I never leave a Wi-Fi area, I would never be charged for any cellular time?
Absolutely. If you place all of your cellphone calls within an accessible and reliable Wi-Fi area, you should never be charged for cellular time by your provider.

Do I have to sign a service contract?
No, DSM’s conferencing is a pay-per-use service. We do not see the need to restrict your freedom as a customer!
How do I record a conference call?
There are three ways to record a call:
- Set your conference to automatically record every call (this feature can be enabled from your online access.)
- Press *2 when you are ready to begin recording.
- Click on the record icon on your online management tool.
Do all participants require a conference code or just the leader?
For each conference, the moderator assigned will receive a permanent dial in number and two conference codes, a moderator code and a participant code. Provide the participant code to each of your conference participants along with the access phone number. You, the moderator would dial the same access phone number and enter your moderator code.

You may call 1-700-555-4141 to see who your current provider is. This call must be made from the phone in question.
Can I keep my existing numbers?
Yes, toll-free numbers that are switching to another carrier will require a signed order form giving authorization.
