Cheap Home Phone Service Provider?

Anyone know of any cheap services where I can keep my current home phone number?

I was originally going to go with Teksavvy for $10/month but the rep said I needed to get their internet service as well which I don't want.

Location: Toronto

Thanks in advance!

There are a several good threads. Search up voip.ms
Not your standard VoIP. Different and novel options & advice for my RFD friends.

I second voip.ms if you have a bit of patience in sorting out the hardware configuration.

Last I checked Koodo offers $5/month for 12 months, then it goes up to $20. I’ve been with Koodo for 2 years and even though it was supposed to, the $15 monthly credit never expired

I used voip.ms a few years ago for a non-profit I was helping. It did the job IF you can sort out the configuration as stated. It's a challange ofor some people, but lots of online help around. So hands down - voip.ms

If your within the TELUS area, POTS is available for $10/mo. Try to convince them to give you $10/mo for six months so you become a customer. When the promo's due, convince them to switch you to Loyalty Home Phone Lite, which is permanently $10/mo and available from loyalty only.

I use voip.ms at two locations. It does require some configuring. I wouldn’t recommend it for someone will little patience unless they have someone with more patience who will do their setup.

Once it is set up though, it is difficult to beat their prices.

I set my parents up with freephoneline.ca

There is a large thread here on RFD detailing it. Anyways, after about $200 you will have no monthly fee's and service, with any internet connection.

I got my parents voip.ms, but somehow they were still racking up large bills with calls overseas. I'm not sure if I set something up wrong, or voip.ms charges for some connections (like to cell phones overseas) are actually expensive.

Anyway I switched them to Vonage with an unlimited overseas plan for $15/month (billed $17.02 total per month). I just need to call in every six months and threaten to cancel and they renew the plan. Works for me.

Also make sure to use nomorobo to get rid of spam callers. It's free for a home line and works with vonage/voip.ms and many other services. It's an absolute life changer!
