Are you talking about Fongo Home Phone or Fongo Mobile?
Fongo Home Phone is currently $4.95 per month according to
https://www.fongo.com/home-phone/ . Freephoneline.ca (the service I was
asking about) is a separate but affiliated "free" service that's
"powered by fongo." It's possible that there's been some rebranding
and/or shifting of business models.
If Fongo Mobile works over WiFi, maybe that's what I'm looking for--it
looks like the basic service is indeed free.
Thanks for the input.
