Fongo deserves 6 stars

In the span of 4 months, I switched 3 VOIP home phone providers (Yxx-Vxxxxxxx-Fongo), I can say that Fongo offers the best value. Nowadays, an ATA is a plug-and-play (or pay-and-plug) gadget that is not rocket science at all. So the complaint about no live person to provide support is unreasonable. Had the review of Fongo been awarded more stars, I probably would have avoid the switch to Vxxxxxxx.

You get what you pay for

The website is as basic as it can be, giving you access to minimum information and if you need support you have to open a ticket and wait at least 24h to get back to you by email.
You do not have access to more than 2 months calling history and once you activatre the 'World Credits Auto-Recharge' feature you cannot stop it without opening a ticket.
If they charge twice by mistake you wait forever to figure out what happened and good luck getting your money back.
I was charged $20 when I already had that amount as balance in my account but the extra charge did not appear in my account. Who knows where that money go?!
Pay more for a reliable service!

Fongo was established in 2012, is a sister company of Fibernetics HQ in Cambridge, ON. At first, the focus was to deliver mobile dialer Apps using mobile VoIP. Dell VOICE was a marketing effort to explore the mobile VoIP space, which ultimately Dell decided to abandon the initiative and subsequently all subscribers were moved to Fongo/Fibernetics. Fongo also provides desktop Apps.

Fibernetics also owns which provides a free number and Canadian calling to most Canadian cities for free. Shall be noted is the commercial implementation of the same service. Dell VOICE/Fongo and/or Freephoneline may be good/cheap alternatives but continue to be plagued by reliability issues and Fongo customers reviews often observe a poor customer support experience along with the low or unreliable quality of service.

Also shall be noted Fongo started charging $0.04 connection fees to all calls that are outside their FREE calling cities. This is in addition to the $0.02 Fongo charged for calls outside the denominated FREE calling zones.  The Fongo Free Calling zone has more than 700 cities/towns, across the ten Canadian provinces and in more than 30 metropolitan areas.

Fongo does support number porting, but in which case there is an additional fee of $9.95 or $25, depending on when you do the transfer. It's cheaper to order the transfer during registration.

The setup fee of $59 includes a locked pre-configured ATA, in which you'll still have to also add $14.95 for shipping.

Early in 2013 Fongo made a very public offer for Wireless carrier Freedom Mobile, but that was a publicity stunt and not a serious offer. Nonetheless, it showed intriguing and for now, largely unaccomplished grandiose ambitions.

In all Fongo presents an alternative in the Home Phone market, but if looking for a Home Phone a no-frills offering deal may be better with Talkit or VoIP Much (more features) and if looking for more rich features, free number transfer, a mature provider will find Phone Power as being one of the top providers.

Can you use an existing phone number that is registered to me

Hi Barry, Technically yes. For that matter most VoIP Home Providers are capable to porting most of the phone numbers. Note some phone numbers may not be available for porting, some old Bell lines for example. Though that is something outside the VoIP Home Phone provider; since Bell or whomever hosts the number have to upgrade the infrastructure first. Also note in the case of Fongo, they charge $25 + Tax to port the number. While the charging for number portability is not unusual, most providers nowadays do this for free. Hope this was helpful.
