Vonage DOES NOT charge anything for 911 calls. i called it and the number show's 'free' under the call activity. there is no charge for it whatsoever.

they SHOULD get e911 service up and running ASAP though. or at least.... they should be able to forward calls to your local police dept... instead of the STATE police which is what I currently get if dialing 911 from Vonage line. So instead, i've put a speed dial on my phone to call 7 digit local police number and that way they also get my telephone number on their caller id system.

Since Vonage has absolutely no 911 service in Canada, I have the 7-digit numbers to Police, Fire, and Ambulance taped to my phones.

Even if they do have it here, I wonder if there will be a problem with me having it. The reason is because I have an Ottawa phone number, but live in Gatineau. Calls to and fro Ottawa and Gatineau are always free, even with the POTS system, and since Vonage only offered an Ottawa exchange, I went with Ottawa. When 911 becomes available, I'm not sure if they will setup mine so that when I call 911 I get the Gatineau authorities. I suppose if I got the Ottawa police, they could forward the call to Gatineau, but it's an extra step in the process, and lost time. Time is everything when there is an emergency. I guess it could work the same way with a cell phone though. My Cell phone also is an Ottawa number, but if I dial 911 on it, it is supposed to go to the Gatineau authorities if I am in Gatineau at the time of calling.

There will be no problem with you having 911. Where your 911 call gets sent to has absolutely nothing to do with what your phone number is. You have to let Vonage know the physical address of where you're using the service. Where your 911 call gets sent to is based on that information and not your phone number.

That's good to know!! Thanks for the information. I will admit that I will feel better once the 911 service is established in Canada. I was putting my garbage out tonight and noticed a fire truck on my street. Someone had a small fire down at the end of my street. It is the first time ever I saw a fire truck in my neighborhood. It goes to show that you never know when something devastating could happen. Having 911 on all of my phones would make me feel better.

My alarm system has a button that you can press and hold and it will instruct the Alarm company to call the fire or police right away. That instruction would go through my Vonage phone system, and it is a form of 911, however if I cannot get to the alarm box due to a fire, it would be useless.

Hmmm, I thought that this was a ACR thread and not a 911 thread. Just me Cool

That's why I signed up with Packet8. Packet8 has anonymous call rejection and other features SBC has.

Vonage has been slow in adding its features, and losing market to Packet8 that it doesn't even know. If it were Microsoft, it would have been trying to keep every customer.

Vonage does not have that feature and there is no sign that it is coming soon.


Not exactly true. I converted to Vonage from Packet8 for the lack of features that Packet8 had. No 911 & no fax capability. My wife uses a fax machine & credit card machine on our fax line all the time without problems. Try that with your Packet8 line with ACR.

I dunno about 911, but when I had packet8 and Vonage, I always faxed on my p8 line because it would never work with Vonage. fortunately I've had better success since I've gotten rid of p8. in the world of Voip, experiences are rarely similar.

PostPosted: Thu Feb 24, 2005 2:22 am    Post subject: Anon Call Reject support by Linksys but not activated yet Reply with quote Back to top

I just got off the phone with a level 2 tech about something entirely different but asked the question about anon call reject before we ended the call. He said that the new Linksys Voip Gateways DO SUPPORT anon call reject BUT because the Cisco and Motorola Voip Gateways do NOT support it they are not going to activate the feature in the Linksys gateways until more people are off the motorola's and moved to the Linksys. They don't want to publish a feature code for something that only works on a particular brand of gateway or they will be flooded with requests to trade out Cisco and Motorola gateways to Linksys.
Makes sense I guess.

Did he mention anything about the PAP2 that is being sold retail? I would "assume" they were capable (at least with a firmware update) but you know what happens when you assume! Smile

Maybe I'm missing something but I don't understand why the type of ATA being used has anything to do with annonymous call rejection. It should be a case of the central switching fabric examining the call data and deciding whether to reject the call or not. Voicepulse has had this for ages and it works beautifully.

The whole idea of softswitches is that the central intelligence of the core switching element makes the decisions. The media gateways and adapters just provide the talk path. Sounds like more stalling tactics to me.
