New Account Policy Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Post Report Post to a Moderator       IP Information Go to the top of this page

We've offered completely free accounts for a long time. However there've been a number of people creating lots of accounts exceeding a fair use. So we had to constantly watch accounts and disable second accounts, which has also been annoying to some users.

So starting from today account creation costs a one-time fee of $15. Accounts can then be used life long within the usage ranges given on the accounts detail page.

In addition there are the following changes:

  • Users can create an unlimited number of accounts.
  • All users are allowed to post to our public forums, to get technical support.
We hope the new policy will benefit you. If there is any issue please let us know and we'll help to fix it.

Dear PBXes, today i have found my account blocked which is, I presume, due to the change in your free account creation policy. I would like to continue using the service so would appreciate if you can inform on the ways of payment for the existing users.
Thank you very much

Hi,

My account had very little use.

However, I had another account I didn't know I had (from many years ago), which I was not using (I had totally forgotten I had it).

So when I received your email, I have immediately DELETED that other account.

But today you have automatically disabled my only remaining account (this one), so I lost all the configuration settings it had.

Could you please fix this?

Many thanks.

Accounts will not be de-activated any more. With the new policy in place, it is okay if you pay once (monthly or setup fee) and then keep it as a free account.

I also had a second account I forgot and didn't use.
deputylynch

The problem is you deleted the account I did use dlynchjr and kept my deputylynch one.

Is there anyway to bring back the dlynchjr one with it already set up and delete the deputylynch one instead??

Yes, you can bring it back by subscribing for any paid account type for at least one month. Then go back to a free account.

The 1€ is not charged, only authorized from your account in some cases.

If you want to unblock your account you need to pay either a month of Soho or Premium account.

From yesterday I'm unable to register SIP clients to my account.
Today I bought soho subscription, but nothing changed.
Client provides Network error, Registration failed.
Please advise, since nothing from my side was changed.

Update: TCP was changed to UDP and started working?

So you can't register via TCP any more? If this is still an issue please open a new thread because this should work no matter which account type you are using.

Also paid for a Soho account, but my account is still blocked. How long is the turnaround time between subscription and unlocking of accounts? Thanks!

To get changes into effect, usually a logout and re-login is necessary. With blocked accounts where no login is possible maybe a re-login from a private browsing window would be worth to try.

Both of these accounts are active. Why do think they would be blocked?

Hi Pbxes, since you new policy my endpoints can't logon to pbxes anymore. it doesnt seem like my account is blocked as i can still login and change settings.

Thanks for your help!

When a PBX gets inactive because you haven't made any calls for a month, you can re-activate it by either displaying one of your SIP extensions under the extensions tab, or by registering your SIP endpoint to another port, which will also help.

If Soho acct is old one, why did it get unverified? Also I've got a zero next to the Soho row. I thought your new policy might affect even old accounts. Just added extension today which shows under the extension tab, if that will help. The deregistration occurred on the day of my successful linking to switch board skill of Alexa, it seems..Jon
