    How often do I need to update my profile?

    You will only need to update your profile when you first use the application and whenever you travel outside your location.

    How should I set my call type?

    There are three (3) types of call settings you can use when calling via the Telehop mobile app:

    • Dial Through - uses a local access number
    • VoIP WiFi - uses WiFi connectivity
    • VoIP Data - uses 3G connectivity / data

    Dial Through

    This default setting is determined by the Telehop service or plan you are subscribed in. The Telehop app dials your outgoing call and routes it through the Telehop network.


    VoIP WiFi

    Using VoIP WiFi lets you call without using your regular data plan. When choosing VoIP WiFi, ensure that your mobile is actually connected to a WiFi network, otherwise it will count towards you data plan.

    To call using VoIP WiFi:

    1. Go to Settings.
    2. Select Call Type and choose VoIP WiFi.
    3. Go back to Settings and click Done.

    VoIP Data

    Using VoIP Data will count towards your regular data plan. You may want to disable 3G VoIP Data calls when traveling to avoid expensive data roaming charges.

    To call using VoIP Data:

    1. Go to Settings.
    2. Select Call Type and choose VoIP Data.
    3. Go back to Settings and click Done.

    What is a Pause Code (Android)?

    Pause codes are automated and carrier-specific codes that are used to instruct the receiving system to pause before entering the numbers that follow them in a dialing sequence. Most common pause codes are "p", "," (comma) and ";" (semicolon).

    The majority of Android phones use "," (comma) to pause when dialing, but a few Androids use "p" (small p). If the Telehop app should fail to dial any number, try changing the default Pause Code setting on the application. You may need to update the automated pause code to one that is specific or appropriate for your phone model.

    When should I enter a PIN?

    When you use the Telehop app for the first time on your Android or on your Apple (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch) device, we will send you a PIN via SMS.

    If you have a Telehop SmartCard, you may enter the PIN found at the back of the card. This will let you use whatever minutes you have on the card instead of your regular Telehop account (if you have one).

    What is a Location ID?

    By default, it is the first 7 digits of your mobile phone number including Country Code. The access number is based on your Location ID. If you change your Location ID and select 'Update Profile,' the access number will also change according to your new Location ID.

    When you Travel

    Change your Location ID whenever you travel outside your city or state to ensure that the access number(s) you will be using is local to your area.

    For example, if you are traveling to Toronto, you can change your location ID to '1416567':

    1416 - Country code + Toronto area code

    567 - first three digits of your mobile number (or any 3-digit numbers will do)

    Click on 'Update Profile' to edit your Location ID. After entering your new Location ID, click on 'Update Profile' again to retrieve your new local access numbers.
