FreePhoneLine


Product Shot 1 The Pros:Provides reasonable quality service with access to cities as advertised. Wonderful ! A phone with wherever you are ! As long as you have good QoS implemented on your network, sound quality is great.

The Cons:Requires a public IP address to function properly. IPtables module ip_nat_sip works intermittently. Some big cities not in the free call list. Complicated to buy vouchers to make calls. No renewall options yet.

FreePhoneLine is a downloadable desktop SIP phone application.  It offers customers a brand new phone number.  Local calling and inbound calling are free.  Canada wide long distance is free to select major cities.

Product Shot 2  Caller ID is available.  Softphone can forward all calls to another phone number if desired.  Voice Mails can be emailed to an email address or they can be checked from the softphone.  You can configure your own ATA or VoIP hardware to work with FreePhoneLine home service.  Home phones can be activated by purchasing and installing an adapter to convert analog voice to digital packets enabling voice traffic over a DSL connection.

I had Freephoneline.ca's soft phone for a while. it wasn't very impressive but after using it for few months i decided to go ahead and get the config for my own ata ht502. i called and paid 50 plus taxes and two weeks later got config info.

it's been couple o weeks now that i've been using Freephoneline.ca as my primery phone line and i am impressed with the quality and phone tech support. i'll try it for few months and will say good bye to my comwave line if found no problems. $20 to port the number and then nothing to pay for ever. bottom line i love the quality and the service both. i hope this will help someone who wants to give it a try.

    Anonymous: Latest softphone works decently for calls, but small glitch prevents INCOMING caller ID from working correctly. Currently offers a local phone number (which can be used for incoming POTS calls from ANYWHERE incl international) in major cities incl Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Toronto (and may surrounding cities) Montreal, Quebec, Kitchener-Waterloo, Ottawa, Hamilton etc. FREE LD calling to all cities around the ones that they have service in plus Barrie, Halifax, Winnipeg with more to come Sep 7, 11
