Yes it was on the news recently so I looked it up and that reminded me that my employer has a setup like this, which was why they call on a different callerID each time.
It’s usually against the terms and conditions but possibly not for incoming calls that are going from GSM to a VoIP line, no? That way if my girlfriend has free same network minutes she can call me on my VoIP line. This would be a very simple setup; I just want to control a mobile phone remotely in effect and call through it. My “least cost routing” would be me manually looking up the numbers or just using a single point-to-point.
Actually, I guess I could do this by putting a phone next to a laptop, sharing the display by VNC and using speakerphone… but I kind of thought someone may have developed something before me.
Thanks for those phrases. Certainly this is very easy using equipment designed for people commiting the reselling fraud but I just want to do it with one mobile phone and so it’s (probably?) not worth the >$500 for a simbox.
The thing is, why do we need a GSM terminal? That’s my point. An android phone and also 3G dongles have the capability, no? Also, I wondered if a bluetooth a2dp connection might make it possible… or even a tty serial connection via USB designed for modems, but instead of using data, make a voice call.
