Dial Tone is the consumer brand used by CanadaDirect.com to offer VoIP services to residential users. CanadaDirect is HQ in Dorval, Quebec. The plans, in general, are priced on the mid to high end when compared to Gonevoip top providers. As normal, the Home Phone plans from Dial Tone do have some of the typical features; such as Voicemail and Caller ID. Though lacks apps for desktop/smartphone - putting it at a disadvantage with Phone Power not only in price but also in flexibility.

Also, another major drawback is that one cannot complete an online registration, rather has to wait for the call-back of their agents. With the negative aspects that usually means the Sales Representatives are likely mandated to be up-selling packages.

In all, we believe there is anything exceptional about Dial Tone Canada Home Phone offering. It is slightly over-priced, not many features and with a sales tactic that is a throwback to the 90s. Simply put, the consumers can choose better and cheaper.

Would Recommend? YES

Needed to Reset Daily

Friendly, patient, polite support. Service often failed, including no dial tone, no incoming calls (sometimes all went to message and were recorded as wav attachment, but attachments were only playable on old laptop, not on iPhone or Nexus tablet). First, it was definitely a bad device (replaced at no charge), then it definitely was a bad supplied CAT 5 cable(replaced at my cost), then definitely the old phone on one jack, then it definitely was the replacement cable being a CAT 6 not CAT 5 (replaced again at my cost), then I gave up after continued daily resets.

An absolute ripoff!

After installing "the device", we were unable to make long-distance calls, and some local calls were tagged as long distance. We called DialTone (aka ComparAction) many times and asked them to fix this but they had no solution,so we sent back the device (a little late, unfortunately) and they charged us $90.00 for late return. This is an absolute ripoff,as the device cost about $4.50 to make. We complained about this but ... ody was willing to refund our pension money. A lesson hard learned...
CARP recommended ComparAction and we will be writing to them with a strong complaint.

Unacceptable

Incoming calls: 2 rings, then nothing more - becomes a "Missed Call".
Phoning support number: "not in this area". In other words, no support response.
Do not confuse Dialtone Canada with Dial Tone - different companies, misleading. Cheaper and more competent VoIP providers are available. I'm trying Phone Power - so far, much more impressive at lower cost (take advantage of the 30 day trial period).
