What was the traditional way of getting a USA phone number and configure it to receive or divert calls?

It used to be quite a lengthy process and one only for the determined. You would first have to register for an SIP with any free SIP provider. You would then proceed to ipkall to obtain a USA phone number using your SIP details.  From ipkall, you would get your SIP client configuration details which are to be used in setting up your SIP client. Armed with these details, you would then have to download a soft phone and get down to configuring it. As you can imagine, its not a process for the faint hearted. Good news is, there’s a much easier way.
