yah, thats also my thinking about cascading with this customer special rates ;) 
but for "base profile" i also want some sub profiles to create the base profile... then there is 100% flexibility ;) 

let us wait what sipwise has to say about that ;)

is there a possibility to exclude free minutes from the billing profiles to set them seperatly on an other layer..? 
Currently I have 5 different billing profiles and this just because i need 5 different "free minutes" packages. 



Another feature request: 
Is is also possible to cascade billing fee profiles..? 


I would also love to see cascading billing profiles. Would make life so much more simple and less error prone. 

Would cascading profiles not also solve your first issue regarding free time/cash? You would simply add your free destinations in a separate profile and these would over-ride the rates in the main profile. 

Or maybe I think of cascading differently: I would want to be able to have, for example, a full a-z profile with my standard base rates, and then the ability to specify one or more additional profiles and any rates in these would take precedence over the base rates of any other rate set in a previous profile. 

1. Base Profile - my stadard rates 
2. Customer special Rates - for example a customer has a special rate for UK calls 
3. Free Rates - defining which rates get to use free time/cash 

So in the above scenario, I could have a base UK rate, and for this particular customer I have assigned a special rate. However I have also included UK in the Free Rates. Therefore this customer will first of all use their Free time for UK calls and then will pay the Special Rates for any subsequent UK calls. 

This would require being able to specify the priority of a rate profile, so that you can determine which rate gets picked. 

It would allow just one Base profile and then deal with exceptions in additional profiles. It would immediately be obvious how a particular customer is being rated and make rates an order of magnitude easier to maintain.
