is Universal PIN?
The Telcan Universal PIN is a virtual calling card that allows you to
make calls with a variety of calling methods, depending on the country
where you are located. The same PIN can be used for toll free access,
local access, PC to phone or callback. Telcan does not add fees and
surcharges, and all calls can be viewed online by logging in to your account
Here is a description of the different calling options, which will help
you save on your long distance:
Callback is ideal when traveling to places where there is no local or
toll free access numbers. There are three main options for triggering
callback, web callback, SMS callback and caller ID callback.
Click on the trigger callback box, enter PIN, number calling from and
number calling to, click on call, the system will call you back and connect
you to your destination number.
Send an SMS message to the SMS access number. In the message enter: 1
Caller ID callback
Call your caller ID access number and hang up on beep sound. Our system
will call you back and prompt for your destination number.
Please note that for SMS callback and caller ID callback to work, it
is essential that your caller ID gets passed to our system, otherwise
the service won’t work. We cannot guarantee that your caller ID
gets passed to our servers.
Toll Free and Local Access
Telcan will provide you with local and toll free access numbers from
a number of countries. To make a call, dial the access number, if calling
from your registered number then dial your destination number, if calling
from any other number dial your PIN and then your destination number.
