How it Works

Chipmunk Tel uses Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP) technology that allows you to make telephone calls using a hi speed Internet connection instead of an expensive traditional phone line. VoIP converts the voice signal from your telephone into a digital signal that travels over the internet then converts it back at the other end so you can speak to anyone using a regular phone. One end of the Chipmunk Tel box plugs into the internet, the other into your phone. Chipmunk Tel includes all the necessary wires. It’s that simple.

Chipmunk Tel works with any touch-tone phone, corded or cordless phone. When you make a call, you’ll hear a dial tone and dial just as you always have. Call any phone number anywhere anytime. When you receive a call, your phone will ring the same as it always has.

Chipmunk Tel’s advantage is our Pay-As-You-Go phone service. Calls cost pennies and you only pay for the calls you make. If you make lots of calls, Chipmunk Tel offers a Talk-A Lot plan. We are confident you will save tons of money. Chipmunk Tel provides all the advanced features you get with traditional home phone services at no extra charge. Advanced features such as Call Forwarding, Call Waiting, Three Way Calling, Caller ID, Call Transfer, Voice Mail, Voice Mail to Email and Music on Hold are all included, free.

Getting started is simple. It takes 3 easy steps:

  1. Create your Chipmunk Tel account. Click here to go the Sign Up page.
  2. Go to the Products page and purchase the Chipmunk Tel Start Up Package.
  3. The device will be shipped directly to you. When it arrives, call a Chipmunk Tel representative and they will help you activate your account. You are ready to start making and receiving calls.

After ordering the Start Up Package, we will contact you and ask if you are interested in transferring your current home phone number. This is called line porting. The process takes about two weeks once we receive the completed Authorization Documents from you.

In the meantime, if you wish, we will provide you with a temporary number so you can start making and receiving calls.

No. No. And no. There are no contracts with Chipmunk Tel. Never. We hate contracts, and we think you do too. You can cancel anytime and get your account balance fully refunded.
