Article Summary

Dialpad offers unlimited local inbound and outbound calling within your country, the US, and Canada. 

Let's take a look at common call rate questions. 

How are rates billed?

Calls are billed per minute, and texts are billed per message.

Charges vary between plans. For example, a Ai Voice User can call anywhere in the USA (including AK and HI) without cost. However, Users on a Contact Center or Ai Sales plan will be billed. 

Be sure to check our rates for full details. 

When do calling rates apply?

International calling rates apply for calls placed outside of your country, the US, and Canada.

Can I receive a collect call?

No. Dialpad does not currently have a feature that allows a User to accept charges for collect calls.

Are inbound calls free?

This depends on your plan, and on the number type that is being called into. 

Inbound calls to your local Dialpad numbers are free for Dialpad Ai Voice Users, while Users on Ai Contact Center and Ai Sales licenses are charged per-minute rates.

Inbound calls to toll-free lines will be billed for Users on all plan types.

I've enabled International Services, and I have Call Credits, but I can't seem to call a specific country — why not?

Dialpad helps protect its customers from potential toll fraud by disabling calls to certain high-cost jurisdictions by default. Because enabling service to these areas creates a risk of potentially very high usage fees if there is misuse by customer employees or breaches of customer security, we ask customers to submit a request in writing to customer service to enable calls to a given high-cost jurisdiction. This ensures that customers are aware of their responsibility for the security and oversight of their usage, as well as for all usage fees generated by access to their system, whether authorized or unauthorized. Reach out to Dialpad Customer Support to see if we can enable calling to your desired country.

Can I call a Satellite phone?

Yes, but due to the high per-minute costs of calling satellite phones, you'll need to reach out to Customer Support to enable this feature.
