Inexistent customer support

Their services disconnect often with no reason. In addition, their customer support is horrible: it takes days, if at all, to answer a request.
Not recommended.

Fine VOIP service.

I have Freephoneline within 4 eyars. I have no problem to call in Canada. i had some problems to call abroad and applied to support. They helped to fix my issues and now line works fine, as regular phone.

Very good service.

Useless

On December 5, 2017 I called 911 only to hear "This call is not covered by your tariff plan." Contacted them twice for an explanation, nothing. I don't use the service much, but when you need 911, you expect it to work.

Extremely satisfied !

I've been using the service for about 4 years and have been extremely satisfied with the service. I've not had any downtime. I've utilized their long distant discount rate by calling throughout the US and Asia and have been please with the sound quality and rates.

I am using the Obihai ATA which was recommended by the moderator when I posted for recommendations. The model of the Obihai is obi202 which allows for 2 phone lines, fax, etc. I figured I may expand to a second line soon.

I installed the unit in my ba ... t, connecting to the main telephone port which are connected to all the phone ports in the bedrooms, kitchen, etc. All my phones are connected to the Obihai device. The sound quality is superb !!!

The key feature my wife an I like is the "follow me" where the calls are forwarded to my wife's cell simultaneously; hence we can be out on on dinner or vacation and not having to miss any important calls. We traveled to Europe and was able to screen the calls and picked up only the calls that are important.

I have recommended the service to many of my friends. I've also recommended the Obihai ATA to them as well as I've had great success with them.

3 years later, still works, still free!

I signed up with Freephoneline.ca over 3 years ago. For a $50 one-time fee, you can use an ATA for your home's phone jacks. I was skeptical, but I figured what the heck, it's only $50 anyway, so no big loss if it doesn't work. I bought a Cisco SPA112, and I paid the $50 fee for the parameters to enter into it. I plugged a line from my SPA112's line-out jack to one of my home phone jacks, and then I plugged my cordless phone into another phone jack, and sure enough, dial tone!

Well, low and behold, after over 3 years, my home phone service still works! It's never gone down once! I have all the features, including voicemail with my messages emailed to me as audio file attachments, call forwarding, caller ID, call waiting, call block, etc etc etc. In other words, I have pretty much every feature available in a premium home phone package, unlimited local outbound calling, and unlimited inbound calls! For free!

So, it's for real! After three years, I've not once received a phone bill. I can plugin any normal telephone in any phone jack in my house, and I get a dial tone. So if you're skeptical, don't be! The service is free if you use a softphone (computer), or you can do what I did, pay the $50, and use your normal telephone(s).

Freephoneline.ca was established in 2007, is a sister company of Fibernetics HQ in Cambridge, ON. At first, the focus was to deliver desktop dialer using VOIP. then they've included selling the SIP configuration file for a flat fee and you could also port your number for a fee. Fibernetics also owns Fongo; similarly provides a free number and Canadian calling to most Canadian cities for free. Also, Wordline.ca is the commercial implementation of the same service. Fongo and/or Freephoneline may be good/cheap alternatives but had been plagued by reliability issues.

Also shall be noted that Freephoneline has started charging for calls, albeit these are outside of the defined free called zones. Also for those that purchased the VoIP configuration and set up the ATA in DIY fashion will find it rather an unpleasant that for dialing 911 they'll be cracked $35 - each time.

In all Freephoneline service may be good for those wanting to do a test with VoIP; though those looking for a no-frills offering may be better with Talkit or if looking for more quality features, customer support at an affordable price should look at Phone Power or VoIP Much or at Yak. Sometimes paying a bit more is just to ensure the quality of service will be there when you need it.

will i still be able to buy credits if i do not switch to fongo?


Hi John, You should be capable of still get "World Credits" though note Freephoneline and Fongo, are in essence the same. Different branding but one and the same product. You may want to have a look at our "Cheap Calls" section to verify if you are getting the best rates. The GoneVoIP Team
