FREE HOME PHONE LINE for the first 5000 Residents from Toronto or Montreal

Not sure if this might be a hot deal but I came across this website offering a Free softphone service.

"The first 5000 residents from either Toronto or Montreal receive FREE calling to anywhere in Canada and your new phone number for life."


Also not sure how long this offer has been around, but it's worth a try :)

www.freephoneline.ca

These are some of the features included:


When you download and signup for our service you will receive free services and great choices!

* A FREE local phone number !, if you live in the 416, 647 and most 905 area codes you can receive phone calls on your new
FREEPHONELNE personal phone number. (Many new area codes will be added in 4th quarter ’07).
* Unlimited Free Local calling !
* Caller ID - The incoming caller’s phone number is displayed on the freephoneline softphone.
* Unlimited FREE Canada wide long distance calling to these major cities : Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, Calgary, Edmonton,
Winnipeg, London, Hamilton, Kitchener-Waterloo, Ottawa, Quebec City, and Halifax, and, all the towns that are a local call to these cities!
* Incredibly low long distance rates outside the coverage areas above. For rates go to www.1011295.com our sister company.
With FREEPHONELINE you dial direct without dialing 1011295.
* Full Enhanced Voicemail Service that is accessible from your phone no charge!
* Voicemail to Email a copy of the voicemail is emailed to your private email account automatically , no charge !
* Follow me service with enhanced unified messaging feature. When not at home, or if you use the PC phone and it is offline,
you can set a number to call forward your local number.. You can also set the number of rings you would like the call forwarded
for [example 3 rings to my cell phone] then if you are unavailable or you choose not to answer the call, freephoneline.ca
voicemail will play your recorded greeting taking a message.
This means you no longer need voicemail on your cell phone or other home phone lines, freephoneline.ca can be
your central messaging service.

Local calling generates error messages saying, "this call is not covered by your tarrif plan", and calling the # assigned to you doesnt work either.... useless!

Interesting.. SIgned up.. Will see what happens. Looks like you need to use their software and only get the VOIP config if you buy the adapter from them. Hopefully there is a way around that..

However, can you go into some detail with that good luck? Is there something bad about 295.ca?

I'm curious if you can access this with a SIP router. I don't know a whole lot about VOIP, but if we can get hardware to access this service, it'd be smokin.

In Toronto anyways, you have to dial the international code "1" before the call goes through. Ex. 1-xxx-xxxx

Works for me.

Good luck!

Signed up too, got activation email almost right away.
Free is free... no credit card needed, so nothing to lose even if it's crap.

Its so easy to get people to give away their private info.

This site has 0 credibility, 0 history and yet people are taking it seriously. Until a few people posts that the call worked, i'm not signing up.

Well, I signed up, and now I have a month to "activate" it. I'm not sure what "private info" I'm supposed to be jealously guarding though. I've given them my name and address--information that's in any local phone book. I'm skeptical of whether this will turn out well, but it's not inconceivable to me that the offer is a legitimate way of building a reputation. It is limited to 5000, after all. But what do I know?

Acanac did something similar (signed up and it's working great btw) so this may well be okay...

Does it say you HAVE TO give out REAL information? You can give out ANY information except yours. It doesn't verify and works rightway. Now I just need to figure out how to config my PAP2 to work with it.
