Yes. In most cases you can keep your current phone number. You may check to see if your number is in a city that supports "number porting" by checking this page. If your number is transferable, we'll help you bring it over to LifeTimeLine Canada. And because transfers usually take about 7-10 business days, you will be able to see the temporary number assigned to your account from the ClientArea.
No. If you don't have an existing phone number, or don't want to transfer your current one, we'll be happy to give you a free new number when you sign up. Check out the cities where we have numbers available in from this list. You can even choose from available areas and a number will automatically be assigned, if no location is specified we'll use your account information city and province.
The big difference is that LifeTimeLine Canada works over the internet. So, you get everything you'd expect from a landline, plus a bunch of advanced features like Voicemail that can deliver your messages by email and integrated fax to email conversion as a standard. This does mean that you will need a slightly different phone than regular "PSTN" (Public Switched Telephone Network) service but once that's done it generally works the same : there are regular-home-phone looking Internet phones these days. Search places like BestBuy.ca, NCIX.com and NewEgg.ca for "SIP Phone" for compatible hardware.
Yes. But you'll have to set up one of the available forms of call forwarding (like call forward when not available) to an accessible telephone from the control panel accessible from ClientArea. During an outage, all calls are forwarded to the alternative number(s) you provided.
UnmeteredPhone and LifeTimeLine works with any high-speed internet connection (like DSL or cable). We have a broad range of Internet services but the service will work on any stable broadband connection that can maintain consistent 64Kbps upstream and downstream availability for best sound quality; you'll need to have your own broadband internet service in place to use VoIP.
