Yes, you can do stuff like this:
- Ireland VoIP provider (eg blueface/smart076) terminates call (eg
076 xxx xxxx)
- Asterisk (in a VPS?) receives call
- Asterisk initiates call to US number either via Irish provider or
another (cheaper?) US provider (eg http://sipphone.com)
- Your *US* mobile rings and you answer the call (which costs you minutes)
Using your Irish mobile over there will still incur roaming charges,
or diversion charges if you divert it to your VoIP number.
Simpler solution would probably just be to set up your provider to
forward calls to a US number - no asterisk required.
Incidentally I have just finished setting up Asterisk in a 64Mb VPS
costing me <$4/month with connections to Australia, Ireland, UK and
the US, along with lighttpd/mysql/php (~=LAMP) and the freepbx
interface. It's working nicely thus far and keeps me out of the
asterisk config files (which can be fairly hairy).
