All new users start with a free trial account, a $20.00 credit, and one randomly assigned long code FreeClimb number. Developing with a trial account gives you the same experience and access to features as a full paid account, with a few restrictions to ensure the security of the platform. Please reference our Using Your Free Trial Account guide for more information.
If you’re a trial user, your initial $20.00 trial credit has run out. To continue using FreeClimb and add funds to your balance, please upgrade your account. If you have an upgraded account, your balance has most likely hit $0.00 due to an automatic payment error. To add funds to your FreeClimb balance or update your payment method, please contact support.
Your account was likely suspended due to unpaid charges or suspected misuse of the platform, as outline in the Terms of Service. While your account is suspended, you cannot access FreeClimb or your data until the issue has been resolved. Suspension is temporary and your account can be reactivated. For more details on why your account was suspended and how to reactivate it, please contact support.
How you’re billed is up to you, but our most popular billing method is prepaid. Prepaid billing automatically replenishes your balance with your selected top-up amount whenever your balance drops below $10.00. If your account balance falls below $0, we will charge your account for the negative balance plus your selected top-up amount. This will avoid multiple charges to your account in one day. Billing is updated at the top of every hour, so that’s when you’ll see changes to your account balance. To discuss other options such as monthly billing, please contact us at email@example.com for more details. For information about pricing, please reference our pricing page.

The REST API handles application-initiated actions and making requests to your application while PerCL is a command language, which you can use to direct the API. For example, if a call comes onto the platform for a number you’ve purchased and assigned to an application, the REST API will make a request to that application at the endpoint you’ve specified. In your application’s response to the request, you can return PerCL that instructs the API what to do with the call. For more information, please reference our PerCL and API documentation.
While FreeClimb does not currently provide built-in grammars for voice, we offer a guide on How to Write Grammars. You can also use third-party speech recognition tools, such as Google Cloud’s Speech-to-Text.
To prevent misuse of the platform and keep FreeClimb free of spammers, all trial users are required to verify outbound numbers prior to use. For information on how to verify outbound numbers, please reference Using Your Free Trial Account. NOTE: only US numbers are supported at this time.
Toll-free and long code numbers differ in terms of capability and cost, so they should be selected based on your specific use case. To match your use case with the most appropriate number type, please reference Understanding Number Types.
This feature is not yet available for most users. Contact sales at email@example.com for more details.
