Re: [Other] Which VoIP providers with those features?

said by NLemay :

They all give SIP configuration for free?

Yes. Anveo, Voip.MS, and CallCentric are all bring-your-own-device services, all are totally SIP friendly.

[No one] charges for SIP configuration except some companies like freephoneline.ca which do it because their service is otherwise free.

911 fee status:
Anveo 80 cents, mandatory Canada/US per CRTC/FCC regs.
CallCentric 1.50, mandatory Canada/US per CRTC/FCC regs.
Voip.MS 1.50, not yet mandatory.

---------------------------

Voip.MS does have some support pages in French as legally required for a Quebec company. They also have a sales/information phone line in French, 1.866.914.5294

That's the VoicePulse special softphone plan (which I agree is ridiculous) which is not their regular service and which very few people use:

The Softphone calling plan is a little different than our regular calling plans:

The plan includes 500 total minutes (local + long distance) for $7.99 activation and $9.99/month.

You must already have one line with a regular calling plan before signing up.

By contrast, freephoneline.ca charges nothing if you want to use their service with a softphone. You only pay the $ 50 if you want to use a device:

Already own a digital phone, digital home telephone
adapter, smartphone app, or other VoIP/SIP phone device?

Purchase the VoIP Unlock Key and instantly receive all credentials required (username and password, etc.) to configure and activate freephoneline on your device.

$50.00 one-time fee

Which I can't blame them for, as that's their only charge for calling to most of Canada's population.
