Getting started with tikki couldn’t be easier. Just sign up for an account, purchase your first credits and get calling. Your account connects directly to your personal mobile number or the virtual number of your choice and allows you to call mobile lines or landlines around the world.

Use tikki straight from your mobile, through the app, or through the web version, if that’s more convenient. Dial the number you want to call on the keypad, just like you would on a regular call, and you’ll be immediately connected. While you need an internet connection, it doesn’t need to be high-speed and the receiver of your call doesn’t have to be online at all. Remember, if you’re calling another tikki user, your call is absolutely free!

tikki makes it easy to pay for your calls. Whether you want to pay by credit card or through a pre-paid coupon, settling your calling costs is made as convenient for you as possible. Just select your preferred method and dial away.

What is a Virtual Number?

tikki gives you the option of choosing a personal virtual number, also known as a DDI, from anywhere in the world, allowing those that call you from that location to do so at local rates. So for example, if you live in India, but you have clients in London, you can purchase a virtual UK number they can call you on for nothing more than a local call. If you choose to call your clients from your virtual number you will be charged from your personal credit account.
Additionally, a virtual number puts you in control of which number shows up on the receiver’s caller ID. By default, Caller ID will be your main phone number, but you can choose for it to appear as any of the virtual numbers you have purchased. This gives you additional privacy and helps you organize your contacts, business and personal, whichever way you like

What is a Virtual Number?

You don’t necessarily need a virtual number, but it does have its benefits. From a professional point of view, if you are traveling or want to conduct business remotely but would prefer your clients not know that, a virtual number can give you the appearance you’re looking for. From a personal point of view, your virtual number will keep your personal number private, if you prefer your caller not have it registered as a contact.

Caller ID or caller identification is the number that appears on your friends’, family’s and business contacts’ phone when you call them.

By default, the phone number that you used to subscribe to tikki will appear as your caller ID.

An SMS is usually limited to 160 characters if it is written using Latin-based characters. If you’re using a non-Latin script, such as Arabic, then the SMS will be limited to 70 characters.

Of course you can, just remember that your character limits change according to the language you’re using: 160 for Latin-based scripts and 70 for non-Latin.

A virtual number (also referred to as a DDI number) is a telephone number that can be forwarded to voice-over-IP. When you purchase your tikki virtual number, all incoming calls to this number will ring through your tikki app.

With tikki virtual numbers, you are no longer tied to a phone number from your area code. You can choose any available international virtual number from anywhere in the world. For example, if you live in Kuwait and your family or business partners live in London, you can get a virtual number from London and your family or business partners can call you on your London virtual number and you receive the calls on your tikki app in Kuwait.

Yes, this function allows you to forward calls from your virtual number to a landline or mobile phone, without the need for a PC, internet, or VoIP. You can always log in to your account and change the call forwarding number. Just make sure that the number is entered in the country code + city code + number format.

When you buy a virtual number and forward it to a landline or mobile number, you pay for termination fees. The termination fees are charged on a per minute basis according to the prices listed here.

Call forwarding, or call diversion, is a feature that redirects an incoming call on your tikki app to another destination, which may be, for example, a mobile phone, voicemail box or another telephone number where the person you are calling is available.

With call forwarding, you’ll never miss a call. If you are expecting a call on your tikki app or virtual number and you’re not able to answer or you’re offline, you can forward the call to a mobile or landline of your choice at low per minute rates.

You can control call forwarding from the app by going to settings and then to the call forwarding settings

A calling plan is suitable for heavy users who need to call a specific destination. A calling plan offers you a certain number of minutes to the country or countries of your choice (e.g., 1000 minutes to India) at a better rate than a Pay As You Go rate. Keep in mind all calling plans expire one month of their purchase. If you need to contact numbers worldwide, then Pay As You Go credits are probably a better choice for you.

First, you should buy credits and then buy the desired plan from your balance.
