Keep your Existing Number
Want to escape from your Telco, but don’t want to lose the phone number
you’re so used to? No problem!
MyNetFone provides Local Number Portability (LNP) - a fancy way of saying
you can keep your existing phone number when moving to our VoIP
phone service.
What do I need to know about Local Number Portability?
• Quick and easy process - only takes 3 days
• Very affordable price to port each number, a small price for
such great convenience
• You can check whether your number is eligible to be moved to
MyNetFone via an online tool at
We understand that your phone number can be a personal thing, so if for any
reason you decide to leave MyNetFone (but with such amazing call rates
and service, why would you?), you can take your number with you*.
*As long as your new provider has their own capability to port numbers from the MyNetFone network
P. 8
Direct In-Dial Number
A Direct In-Dial (DID) Number is simply a normal landline telephone number
that is attached to your MyNetFone service for you to receive calls on. It is
included FREE with most MyNetFone plans!
Even if you move your existing number to MyNetFone, it can still be handy
to get additional DIDs – read on to find out more!
How do I choose my DID number?
Login to the MyAccount portal at, then:
• Select ‘My Numbers’ in the left menu
• Click on ‘Lease New Number’ (bottom right of page)
• Select the Region where you require a local number (Note: make
sure to leave ‘Group Size’ as ‘1’)
• Available numbers and any associated charges (if applicable) will
appear – to confirm, click ‘Lease Selected Group’
• Now go to ‘My Voice Service’ in the left menu
• Click on ‘Direct In-Dial Numbers’ in the top menu
• Click ‘Add DID’ on the right of the page – the DID you just ‘leased’
will appear
• Select the DID and confirm
Alternatively, our Customer Service Team is happy to help you out with this
process – give them a call on 1300 731 048.
Get a lot of calls from Interstate?
You can set up additional DIDs in most Australian regions, so your family and
friends from interstate can call you for the cost of a local call (you already get
untimed calls Australia-wide from 10¢ per call depending on your VoIP plan).
Additional DIDs cost just $30 per year – simply follow the process described
HINT: Travelling overseas? Your friends & family can call you for the
cost of a local call! Simply get a DID number for your home-town, then
take your MyNetFone handset or softphone & set it up overseas.

Voicemail & Voicemail to Email
MyNetFone provides a free voicemail service with all VoIP Plans. Plus, we can
deliver your voicemail messages straight to your inbox as an audio file that
you can conveniently download wherever you are.
Dial 121 from your MyNetFone service, press ‘0’ for Voicemail Setup
and follow the prompts to record your voicemail greeting
(Note: Mailbox number is your DID number)
Login to the MyAccount Portal and select ‘My Voice Service’
Click on the ‘Follow Me and Voicemail’ tab in the top menu and
select ‘Redirect to Voicemail on Busy or No Answer’. Click the
‘Update’ button.
The Voicemail service is now active. To also set up ‘Voicemail to Email’
redirection, follow a few extra steps:
In the ‘Voicemail to Email’ box on the same page, select either:
a) ‘Forward Voicemail to Email, Delete from Server’ – the
voicemail will be automatically forwarded to your
nominated email address and the voicemail content will
be erased immediately from our server.
b) ‘Forward Voicemail to Email, Leave on Server (Collect
via 121)’ – the voicemail will be automatically forwarded
to your nominated email address, but will also be
retained on our server, which you can access by
dialing 121 from your VoIP line.
Enter your email address and recipient name and click ‘Update’.
You’re done!
To switch OFF the ‘Voicemail to Email’, select ‘No Follow Me’ at step 3.
P. 10
Follow Me
Follow Me is a handy call-directing feature included with all MyNetFone Voice
Services. It allows you to forward incoming calls to multiple numbers or to
For example, if you have a DID number for your home-phone, you can
redirect it to your mobile, so you can still answer the call when people try to
call your house. The next step might be to redirect to your partner’s mobile or
to voicemail.
Login to the ‘MyAccount Portal’ and select ‘My Voice Service’ in
the left menu.
Click on the ‘Follow Me and Voicemail’ tab in the top menu and
select one of the following:
• ‘Redirect immediately to Follow Me list’ - sends calls to
the numbers on your Follow Me list straight away
• ‘Redirect to Follow Me on busy or no answer’ - sends
calls to your Follow Me list if you don’t answer after a
certain amount of time (you can adjust the time)
• Follow Me & Voicemail: ‘Redirect to Follow Me list then
voicemail on busy or no answer’ - sends calls to the
numbers on your follow me list, and if none answer, sends
the call to voicemail.
Click on ‘Add Follow Me’ and add the numbers you would like to
redirect calls to.
To switch OFF the ‘Follow Me’ directions, select ‘No Follow Me’.
NOTE: The ‘Follow Me’ feature is free but does not include call costs, so if
you redirect the calls to mobile or international destinations, these will be
charged to your account at MyNetFone’s great low rates. The caller will only
pay for the call to the original destination number.
P. 11
Global Access Dial-in
Make calls at MyNetFone’s low cost rates from any telephone - dial in
from the office, a friend’s place, even whilst on holiday!
Simply dial into your local Global Access Point from a pre-registered
telephone number (Global Access Number) and then call via your MyNetFone
The Dial-in option is ideal for using Global Access when making calls from a
landline to a local Access Number, so you only pay for a local call to your
Telco, and then low MyNetFone VoIP rates for the rest of the call.
In the MyNetFone Portal, register the phone number of the phone
you wish to call from: mobile, VoIP, landline.
Login to MyAccount from the homepage, then go to ‘My Voice
Service’ -> Global Access -> Add Global Access Number
Dial your local Global Access Point: Get the full list at
You will then hear a voice prompt advising you to dial the number
you wish to call.
Please note: make sure you dial the area code when calling an
Australian number (i.e. 02 9999 8888), this is a necessary step for the
Global Access feature to work correctly.
Start chatting!
HINT: If you want to use Global Access from a mobile phone or
if you do not have a local Access Number, use the Global Access
Callback option (next page) to avoid paying STD fees or ‘per
minute’ mobile rates.
P. 12
Global Access Callback
Get low VoIP rates while using any phone or mobile. All you need is to
register your phone number or mobile number on our website and you’re
ready to use this service - plus, registration is free!
This feature is ideal for people ‘on the go’ who often use their mobiles,
especially if calling overseas. It is also handy for those frequently visiting
family in remote areas who are not connected to VoIP, where using Global
Access Callback will help avoid STD charges.
Register your mobile, landline or any other phone from which you
frequently make calls - simply log into the MyAccount Portal,
• ‘My Voice Service’, then
• If you have multiple VoIP devices, select the device you
want your VoIP calls billed to, then
• ‘Global Access’ tab in the top menu and enter up to 5
numbers you want to add
Dial one of the Global Access Callback Numbers 1800 158 039 or
02 8094 1881from any of the numbers you registered in step 1 - you
will hear a ‘busy’ tone, you should press ‘#’ on your keypad and hang
up. You will not be charged for the call by us or any third party
provider, as it is not answered by our system.
Our system will call you back in a few seconds - you then simply
pick up the call and hear an automatic prompt to enter your
destination number! The call will then go through at low VoIP call
rates - this will involve two charges: one VoIP call charge for the ‘call
back’, and a local or international VoIP call charge to the destination
HINT: Remember to enter the full international code if calling
overseas, or the area code if calling within Australia.
P. 13
Shared Access Numbers
Your friends can call you for the cost of a local call from anywhere in
Australia*, with no special equipment required!
With Shared Access Numbers, your friends and family simply dial a Shared
Access Number as a local call from selected areas in Australia! They enter
your MyNetFone number as an extension and can now talk to you for the
cost of a local call!
Give your callers the MyNetFone Shared Access Number local to
their area from the list at, and
your MyNetFone Number (09xx xxxx) as an extension
They dial the Shared Access Number for the cost of a local call
They follow the prompt to enter ‘the full destination number’ - which is
your MyNetFone number (09xx xxxx)
Note: Do not use DID’s for this - they will not work with this service
The caller is immediately transferred to you via the MyNetFone
network. Once calls are inside the MyNetFone network, they are free
- no matter the origin or destination of the call!
* Locations that are within the boundanies of regions listed in Shared Access Number table online.

What is VoIP?
To put it simply, VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) is a way to
make phone calls for less. It’s the same as using your home
phone, except the call is sent over your broadband Internet
connection instead of the regular telephone network.
Since calls made using VoIP are significantly cheaper than using landlines,
most of our customers save about 60% off their phone bills.
It may sound high tech, but in fact it’s very easy to use! You can still use your
existing handsets, and your computer does not have to be switched on.
How it works:
To use MyNetFone’s VoIP service, you simply need:
• Broadband connection, either DSL or cable
• VoIP-enabled telephone: Either your normal handset plugged into a VoIP
phone adaptor (or a softphone), or an all-in-one handset
• MyNetFone service plan of your choice
All our devices are plug & play: you’ll make and receive calls from people with
ordinary landlines, mobile users and other VoIP users in no-time!
It’s so easy to use - get your friends & family on it. Plus, you’ll be able to call
each other for free once you’re both on the MyNetFone Network.
• Single user broadband connection using a VoIP Adaptor

Difference between Regular
and Naked ADSL2+
MyNetFone delivers two types of internet connection: regular ADSL2+ and
Naked ADSL2+. Regardless of the type of connection, our service includes a
number of other key benefits:
Same plans & quotas for ADSL2+ and Naked ADSL2+
Easy Setup: all our equipment is pre-configured
Free Unlimited Technical Support from our Sydney call centre
Low contention for better internet connection quality
So what is the difference?
• No line rental - save up to $400 per year!
• Your landline phone line will be no longer be
• Optional: move your number to MyNetFone
and use VoIP for all your calls intead, just like
a regular phone line*
• Limited coverage
• Internet delivered over your existing phone line
• You still pay line rental to your phone provider
• Optional: use VoIP to save on call costs*
alongside your regular landline
• Excellent coverage
Since Naked ADSL2+ provides much better value by getting rid of line rental, we always offer it as
the preferred option. But if Naked ADSL2+ is unavailable in your area, our Coverage Checker will
automatically offer you the next best option of regular ADSL/ADSL2+ with the same great value
plans (only available on Economy or higher plans).
We guarantee you get the best value out of your
MyNetFone Broadband Plans, by automatically
passing along to our existing customers any quota
increases or price reductions made to our plans!
Unlike some other providers, with MyNetFone there
is no need to wait for your current contract to expire
before you get any quota increases.

Important information
you should know
w about VoIP
With VoIP services, calls to emergency services 000 may not work at all times
– for example when the power is out or the Internet is down. Emergency
service operators are also unable to indentify your physical location so you
will need to inform them. We do not recommend using MyNetFone as your
only telephone service at home and suggest you keep another form of
telephone – mobile or landline – available for calling emergency services. Due
to the nature of the Internet and other factors which are outside our control,
MyNetFone cannot provide faultless emergency call services.
MyNetFone provides award-winning quality service. However, the voice
quality may vary due to the performance of your broadband Internet
connection. If you encounter this problem, check with your Internet Service
Provider or contact our Customer Care Centre.
Conditions of service
Use of the MyNetFone service is subject to our Terms and Conditions.
Please refer to our website:

service, we offer a 14-day money back GUARANTEE for any
