I asked diamondcard and they said that incoming calls are charged according
to the DID rates ; for SIP that would be 0.007 $/minute.
 At <http://diamondcard.us/rates>, click on "DID", then "USA", then search
for "SIP". The link is: <http://tinyurl.com/3dtacr8>, or for those who want
the real URL (it is hideously long):

I suppose technically a call is always routed somewhere; that must be how
diamondcard charges for incoming calls.
