WebPhone


You may call us directly here from our website using our new WebPhone on the right. The call is 100% web based, and it's completely free of charge.

The WebPhone requires:

  • a broadband connection
  • a headset, or microphone and speakers
  • the latest version of Chrome, Opera or Firefox

When prompted, please allow the WebPhone to access your microphone, otherwise our support rep. will not be able to hear you.

Do not close the popup window until after you have ended your call, or you will be disconnected!


What do I need to make a successful web call?

Here are two main conditions to make this experience possible:

(1) You need the latest version of Chrome, Opera or Firefox as these are the only browsers today that support this technology.

(2) You also need a working microphone and speakers, and you’ll need to make these accessible to your browser by clicking “Allow” at the top of the browser popup window when prompted (after clicking to call).

Also note: If you are using a mobile or tablet browser, the device itself needs enough computing power to handle the media stream in the browser— We find that only the latest devices can handle this.

It’s telling me to share my microphone/speakers?

Using our WebPhone requires your browser’s access to your microphone and speakers. If you are using Chrome, please be sure to check the top of your browser window for Allow—Click Allow. In Firefox, please select the small camera icon in the upper left hand corner of your browser and press “Share devices” in the dropdown.

I clicked to call on my mobile/tablet, and it’s not working?

It is possible that device doesn’t have enough computing power to run the call in the browser. Please try on a PC if you’re interested.

I clicked to call, but I hear nothing while the call is going? Sound seems broken?

Please check to see your speaker volume is audible. If your volume is up, it is possible your speakers are not working with your browser properly for this application. You can troubleshoot by checking your speaker settings in your browser. It is also possible you are experiencing a  intermittent network-related issue.

I clicked to call, but the caller can’t hear me?
