Trivial to plug in, get a dial-tone, and make your first call!
Later, during registration, after picking area code 613, it just gave me a "city code" dropdown containing 3-digit (prefix) numbers, but no city names. Picking one was hit and miss, since I didn't recognize any as Ottawa numbers. If you choose wrong, you might end up with a number that is local to a different city...area code 613 is massively large! You can change it later online, after you do some research with a phone book, but it doesn't allow much flexibility choosing the number. It also doesn't allow you to port your existing home phone # in.
Call quality is usually very good, but have experienced cutting out on a few calls (one time it was effectively unusable).
Pros:2nd phone line

PROS
I puchased it through Dell who paid for the return shipping and promptly refunded my money!
CONS
I "fired my phone company" only to find out that NET TALK has very few area codes and numbers in Canada. In fact, I live in a 519 area code and they wanted to give me a Toronto number. When I asked how to resolve the problem, they sent me a survey to complete. When I asked again, they could only say "sorry".

Very straigh-forward to set it up. It works right away. I chose Ottawa as my location. I was able to pick up a number that I liked online once completing my registration.
It works well with my 2Wire DSL modem, and Primus is my ISP.

Pros
Very good price to buy. Unlimited calling to Canada and US for a very good price. Pay one price for the year and forget about monthly bills. Clear and easy to use. Works excellent with D-Link 615 wireless router.
Cons
I cannot currently get a local number to my area. Supposed to be getting new numbers all of the time but for now I have to wait. Just make sure you check availability of your local number before you buy. Does not make a difference calling out only if someone is calling you.
