  • What is “unlimited calling to five numbers”?
Most cell phone providers in Canada offer unlimited local calls to and from five numbers of your choice. This feature is either included free of charge in your monthly cell plan or offered as an add-on at a low fee. You should be able to choose any wireless or landline number for your five numbers. Once you register these numbers with your provider, you should be able to send and receive unlimited local calls within your local area calling to/from these five phone numbers free of charge.

  • How does using “unlimited calling to five numbers” with SmartReach work?
Remember, when you make calls from your cell phone, you are paying between ten cents a minute (the lowest volume rate available) and thirty five cents a minute (standard overuse rate) for air time.
You save money, because
  • When you call the SmartReach number (after putting it on your “unlimited calling to five number plan”) you do not pay for air time for this first leg.
  • b) When you call your destination number using SmartReach (the second leg) you are using SmartReach’s land lines to make your call. This costs you less than two cents a minute.
You therefore avoid paying cellular phone charges to make calls!

  • If I call SmartReach to make local calls, how can I reduce the number of digits that I need to dial?
Simply assign a speed dial command to the SmartReach access number in your phone contacts list (you can also create a voice command if your phone has a voice recognition feature) and you won’t need to dial the SmartReach access number every time you need to make a call. For even faster calls, you can assign speed dials to your frequently called destination numbers in the SmartReach portal (go to “Create Speed Dials”) and you can place calls through SmartReach in a matter of seconds.
