Default Piranha as VOIP provider? - 17-08-2017, 23:35

I don't bother with the Piranha simcard anymore.

You both seem to be happy/satisfied with using Piranha as your Voip provider.
[inertia?? you had the SiM and it works well enough so why bother changing something that is working OK?].

Does Piranha "work good enough" for your uses?
On Piranha's website they suggest Zoiper. Any reason not to?
This is mainly for experimenting and not serious use.

I primarily use it when I am traveling outside the country. And for that purpose, I am quite satisfied with it.

Default Wished it had call log for forwarded calls - 25-10-2017, 12:46

Anyone else noticed that the call log does not include forwarded calls? The credit balance certainly does reflect it.When I travel to Nigeria (was recently there the last 2 weeks)I forward my US number to it, then forward it to my local sim in Nigeria. The call log does not show how I am being charged for the forwarded calls. I know the rate of course.

Default Is Piranha still working for your needs? - 07-12-2017, 20:14

Is Piranha still working for your needs?

What do you use it for?

Any 'strange' uses you use it for that others would be unaware of?

I use the call forwarding service so that I can continue to receive my US calls when I am out of the country. I also use the VOIP functionality. For outgoing calls, I use vonage app or googlevoice Majority of my calls are from family and we all use whatsapp for that. So, honestly speaking, my use for international sims has diminished significantly.

Default T-Mobile no longer used in USA? - 22-01-2018, 03:11

For the last month or so I have tried to change my network here in California,
USA back to T-Mobile after switching it to AT&T to fool around.
I have not been able to change back to T-Mobile.
Tonight, I looked at the rate page and T-Mobile is no longer listed for the USA.
Only AT&T.

Wonder when that happened?

hi, We have been having issues with the operator and T-Mobile has been suspended for now, once the issues have been resolved it will be reinstalled within the rates calculator.
