KNOW WHAT NUMBER IS RIGHT FOR YOU (AND YOUR GUESTS)

Depending on what country you and your Guests are in, what device you’ll be using to join the call and what plan you or your Host is on, it all affects your options. For example, if you’ve got Guests calling in from Germany, it’s best to get them to dial in using the German dial-in number. If you and your Guests are in the UK, it’s best to make sure that there is a UK number to dial into to avoid any international charges. As a rule of thumb, if there’s a dedicated dial-in number for mobile, stick to it and if there’s a specific dial-in number for the country they’re in, use it.

AVOID NASTY SURPRISES

The reality is, there can be an endless amount of dial-in numbers for users to join the call, but what can often happen, is that you don’t get given the right dial-in number (and cost) for your call. It’s important to make sure your Host knows how and where you’ll be dialling in from and who is going to be charged. Find out more about these number types.

To avoid any nasty surprises, it’s best to check what the rate of calling each number is, whether it includes VAT and your phone company’s access charge, and whether it’s your Host or Guests that will pay for the call. And if you don’t know what your phone company’s access charge is, we recommend you check to save yourself from getting nasty shocks on your bill.

REMEMBER HOW TO CONNECT

There’s nothing worse than trying to join a minute before your call starts and not knowing how to connect. To keep the nervous sweating to a minimum, with PowWowNow, you simply enter the dial in number and PIN when prompted. So, to avoid being late to your call and panting on the other end, make sure you’ve got your dial-in number and PIN on hand and ready to enter.
