PIN-less dialing is a feature that saves you the hassle of entering your 12-digit pin number prior to dialing your destination number. Once you’ve registered a maximum of 3 CLIs (“Caller Line Identification”) that you are calling from – a home line, mobile phone or office line – just dial the access number followed by the destination number you wish to call. Log on to My Account and click on Accounts Settings to register your CLIs.
In the event that your phone provider does not match your phone number correctly, we might ask you to enter your PIN number when you make a call.
No. The called access number would not recognize your CLI, and you would not be able to use the PIN-less service. However, you can still use your account by dialing the 8-digit account number + the 4-digit PIN followed by the international destination number.

There are many advantages to trueroots International Calling Service by Tata Communications but the 3 key points of difference between international calling cards and trueroots are:
• No need to scratch cards each time you purchase a new one and enter the pin number before you make the call by registering your CLI.
• You can see how and where you spend your minutes by logging into your account. This gives you more transparency in billing compared to a calling card.
• No hidden charges, maintenance fees, connection fees, etc.
When you dial a PRS number, you start paying as soon as the PRS number is connected to the service provider. This means you pay for the welcome greeting, the time you take to dial the number and the waiting time before you actually speak to the opposite party. You are also billed if the number is busy or keeps ringing at the opposite end. Hence, you often end up paying even if you have not spoken a single word. Several PRS providers often delay the time duration it takes to connect your call in order to increase your waiting time (i.e. your phone bill increases as well). With trueroots International Calling Service, you start paying only when the other party lifts the receiver to answer your phone call.
