UniFi Talk - Manage UniFi Talk subscriptions

With a UniFi Talk subscription, you can easily access local phone numbers that support emergency calling. Each UniFi Talk phone number offers 3,000 monthly minutes for worldwide inbound calls and outbound calls to the US, Canada, and Mexico.

While setting up your UniFi Talk system, you will have the option to activate a subscription with a dedicated number for each UniFi Talk phone connected to the system. If you have multiple phones connected during the setup, you can choose to set up additional phones with extensions only and add them to a group to share a number after setup.

Each UniFi Talk phone number supports unlimited concurrent calls, with a limit of one outgoing call per second.

Notes:

  • Currently, UniFi Talk subscription service is only available in the US and Canada, but we are working on bringing the service to other territories and countries.
  • Monthly minutes are shared by all active numbers managed by your UniFi Talk application. Local extension calling is free and does not require a UniFi Talk subscription.
  • $0.02/min beyond the first 3,000 minutes. International calls start at $0.01/min. View our international calling rates.
