Been with them since January. Good service like the others have mentioned. Draw backs: caller ID but no name id so you have to program your phone to lookup. Call waiting does not work sometimes. Also no real support except through email. Fax does not work
I've had this since last Sep. Name CallerID just started working within the past 2 weeks. No setup changes on my part. Cordless phone has always supported "Name Display" and got a call a week ago that showed the name and realized that I actually didn't have the number programmed into the phone.

Where does it say 12 months only? I could see it on the site, also it only covers 2500 minutes of call forwarding then 50cents per minute but dont think alot of ppl use this alot but is it really for 12months only? What is the reg price after the promo?
That's all I see too. If this price is permanent, then I might make a second account for my VoIP. Really good price, plus take it with you wireless, so when you go to the cottage.

Existing customers ok, it just has to be a new activation, meaning, if you are already on a home phone plan with Koodo, you can't switch to this promo

I'm wondering if I can get a new activation, and then transfer my existing Koodo home phone number to the new activation to extend my $5/mo deal

That's exactly what I tought too. Could be worth a shot.
Port your number out, and then back in. $50 one time + $5 for 12 months is still cheaper than $20 for 12 months.

Not available in Alberta
Virgin Mobile's Home Phone is available in Alberta, not in Ontario: http://www.virginmobile.ca/en/phones/ho ... rovince=AB One-time fee is $5.02 cheaper too. It is probably because Bhell wants to keep selling their overpriced home phone plans in Ontario.

No way,I tired to use it in a cell phone and the sim card was locked,I don't remember exactly how,but it locked either my phone or my cellphone sim card after I put it in the cellphone ,it was a horrible mess and I had to call Kodoo technical support to get a code to unlock mobileline sim card.

Not worth it IMO if you have internet service, Freephoneline is a one time $50 charge for an Obi and an $80 one time charge for Voip unlock key. For my grandmother however, this Koodo deal is a LOT cheaper than her $50/month bHell landline. She's on a very similar Fido home phone plan. Thanks OP, I think I'll switch it over to Koodo to save $150.

I set up my stepfather last month (had no phone for a couple years at home) on Koodo plan-- $20.00 mth. (plus initial costs for equipment of course)-- he just wanted for emergency calls-- we had to take a Sudbury number so to call him a few hundred feet down the road, I have to call long-distance. It seems to work fine for his needs.

OP can you confirm this is only for 12 months? I don't see this explicitly stated any where on the site.

I don't see that either........hoping it's an ongoing rate. I'll sign my grandmother up today and port her Fido home phone number!

Yeah the "Nitty Gritty" doesn't mention anything about it being for 12months, perhaps this is a mistake on their part? Unless it shows up on the final checkout page or in your account? $5 month for life is hot.

Just spoke with a Koodo rep so its $5 for the first 12 months then $25 thereafter but no contract it can be cancelled anytime so still a good deal you can always shop around end of term or something else might come up towards the end of the year.
