IP Phone FAQ
A, if you have a ZTE Home Modem, please connect your personal home phone set (the actual phone itself) to any port (Phone 1 or Phone 2) on the back of this modem. The ports are labelled accordingly for easy setup. You may dial *97 to login in to your personal settings, for voicemail and phone feature options.
B, if you have a ZTE Home Phone Box, please connect the WAN port, using an ethernet cord, at the back of ZTE Home Phone Box to your Router or modem. Please then connect your actual phone itself using a DSL cord to the phone port labelled on your ZTE Home Phone Box. The setup should be complete.
IP phone uses Internet as transmission medium, while conventional phone lines work on public switched network. The prices generally are significantly lower for an IP phone than your regular conventional phone, which benefits our customers financially, especially with our unlimited usage packages.
ZFlix's Home Phone service uses your high-speed Internet connection to deliver your phone service. As you would with a traditional telephone network, you can call anyone who has a conventional phone service, an Internet-based phone service line, or a cellular phone. All types of telephone services are compatible with our IP Phone service when placing and receiving calls.

There are some differences between the 9-1-1 service dialled from your new ZFlix Home Phone service and the traditional 9-1-1 service. When you dial 9-1-1 from your ZFlix Home Phone service, our emergency service operator will answer your call. Our operator will verify that you are still located at the address you have registered with ZFlix.
If you are still at this location, our operator will transfer your call to the appropriate emergency agency. If you have moved your ZFlix Home Phone service equipment, you will need to provide our operator with your current location. They will determine the appropriate emergency agency and then transfer your call accordingly.
If you will be away from the service location that you registered with ZFlix for an extended period of time and you will be taking your ZFlix Home Phone service with you, we recommend that you update your user profile to ensure that the appropriate address is on file in the event of a 9-1-1 emergency call. This process may take up to 5 business days. Please contact one of our customer service agents to make any changes to your 9-1-1 profile.
Please note that there may be an additional delay to transfer your emergency service call to areas not served by traditional 9-1-1.
If you dial 9-1-1 when you are outside of Canada or of the United States, our emergency service operator will advise you to hang up and find a local phone and dial the appropriate emergency number (it may not be 9-1-1).
