In Canada, Caller ID has a monthly fee and even Touch Tone on a landline also has a fee. For many years I refused to pay the Touch Tone fee So I dialed with rotary dial pulses (on my modern pushbutton phones) then switched to free Touch Tone for banking and for navigation.Wow, I thought caller ID was standard. Didn't realize some countries were still in the stone age.
Assuming you have multiple telephone providers? you'll probably find that some of them charge extra for caller ID, if you specifically want caller ID (and really who wouldn't?) then you need to make sure you pick one who provides it for free, or be prepared to pay for it.Wow, I thought caller ID was standard.

So how do you connect to the Internet? - assuming it's via cable?, why is that any different to a phone line?.I am so glad I don´t have a landline and never will, unless I am in a place where it is the only option for internet to have an xdsl connection or whatever comes next.
I guess in Canada you guys have fewer annoyance calls because Caller ID, while it is included in my land line and cell service I would gladly pay for. The elimination of annoyance calls alone makes it worth it down here.I have a "bundle discount" of TV, internet and home phone" from my cable TV provider. They have a fee of $6.00 per month for Caller ID that I will not pay.
They have no extra charge for touch tone.
