has anyone had Spark Dual Number before? I'm switching from a dual copper line to Dual Number over fibre landline. How do you tell who is calling for which number, do they have distinctive ring tones or something? I can't find any info from Spark on this.

Are you currently using stepping or two separate physical lines? 

 

 

 

If it's using stepping, that functionality is kinda... recreated. on fibre.

 

If it's two separate lines, it will come just like that. POTS1 and POTS2.

If you have the "Connector Feature Pack" on your Spark fibre landline (an additional $10 a month), you get an additional dual number which has a distinctive ring. From memory when I had it, you can actually log into your MySpark account online and choose from a couple of different ring cadence options.

 

I also loved the simultaneous ring option - calls to your landline would also ring your Spark mobile at the same time. Whoever answers the call first (landline or mobile) gets to speak to the lucky caller, and there are no mobile/diversion charges for this service. Great if you are expecting a call at home but then have to go out unexpectedly.

 

See here for the full list of features that come with this pack.

Yes I have the Connector Pack. So POTS1 & 2 are irrelevant, i.e. you can't set up different rooms to receive different numbers?

Correct - POTS2 would only be used if you had a second (and independent) line connected. Dual number just gives you two phone numbers which both ring on the same physical line.
