Callwithus is a family owned and operated service. They are somewhat unique in the VoIP industry. They developed the service primarily for their own needs however, with spare bandwidth and resources they started to offer the service to the consumer. Callwithus do not offer the typical unlimited or monthly fee plans that other providers do, rather they offer a pay as you go type of service. All you need is a broadband connection. With this service you build the features you want and need - there is a charge for some features but you get the choice to include or exclude any available feature. To use this service it really does require a little bit of technical knowledge - as long as you are capable and comfortable with configuring a device such as a router then you should have little trouble with setting up this service. There are many client configurations listed on their site that users have used successfully, so there is plenty of help available.
Callwithus have only 5 reviews on Whichvoip dating back to 2008. Callwithus are not driven by acquiring customers and do not have to report to shareholders of Venture Capitalists - they run their own service and aim to keep it cheap and reliable. They don't advertise heavily, rather they rely on organic growth, this is one major reason why their volume or reviews is on the low side. Having said that there is an easy trend to spot, all reviewers recommend the service giving it 5 stars in virtually every category.

...Got their service for my outbound calls. Works great. Call quality is better than PSTN or other voip providers. Totally reliable...

The owner/customer support person is very rude and doesn't care about customers. Never a hello, please, or thank you, but profusely condescending. The "doc" for the API and the API itself are horrible too. Call quality is poor, there are trunks you have to manually exclude because they rarely terminate calls successfully (but you get charged for the call regardless.) All in all, I wouldn't recommend. Especially when other, more established competitors offer a far superior and more professional service for not much more money.

CallWithUs is really great. I've been using their service personally since 2007 for SIP to PSTN
calls. I have had success making calls using Linphone on Linux, Acrobits on iOS, Telephone.app on OS
X, and with a Grandstream HT-286 device.
Support has always been helpful in the few cases when I had issues with the service. Call quality is great and latency has not been a problem. The web interface is simple and functional.
CWU allows funding your account balance in small increments and with multiple payment methods (now including Bitcoin). A little goes a long way with this economical service.
CallWithUs has provided a reliable, high-quality service for me over the years, and has only gotten better. I recommend them.

I have spent 5-6 years with Callwithus and the support guy is a madman. He does not seem to care about customers and cut me off because I demanded a refund for a mistake they made. I asked him if he didn't have a bible to change from being a jerk after 6 years and he said he is an atheist and terminated my account. Good service but madness with the customer service guy so be careful.

We have been getting our home DID from callwithus (with a Trixbox server) for about a year. It has been trouble-free. There was only one time I've had to email them, and while I forget what the underlying issue was, I remember their response was prompt and they either fixed the problem on their end, or told me how to do so on mine. Their website is somewhat could be better laid-out and certainly could be more attractive, but it's functional. I'd recommend this provider.

CallWithUs is a smaller VoIP provider which provides great service at great prices. It's a plan which gives you the freedom to select and provide your own telephone adapter, softphone, or other VoIP device. The benefit is well worth it. The rates are fantastic, and there are no minimums and NO monthly fees. If you wish to purchase an inbound number, those are available too, or you also have the freedom to use a DID number from elsewhere at no extra cost. The website does not look fancy, but that's misleading. CallWithUs emphasizes providing good, reliable, economical service, rather than looking flashy.
