As a new net2phone Canada user, the first thing to do is familiarize yourself with our client portal, SONAR. As a basic user, you 7 tabs in SONAR, as well as your profile. 

Profile - ensure your personal information is correct: change your password and PIN, add email addresses, and see your directory options.   

Home - designed to give you fast access to the most important and frequently viewed information. There are four components of the Home section:

  • New messages
  • Recent call history
  • Active answering rule
  • Active phones

Messages - see your voicemails (unless you have voicemail-to-email turned on, which is the default) and access voicemail settings. 

Contacts - access all of your contacts. Your contacts display in a list by name, phone number/extension number, status (online/offline), and department. You can also pop-out contacts if you don't want to keep the SONAR tab open.   

Answering Rules - you must use answering rules in conjunction with Time Frames; together, you can create various answering rules that change how calls are directed and forwarded at different times. 

Time Frames  - allow you to choose what happens based on a date range, or a time. There are three types of time frames you can choose from in addition to your default time frame:

  • Always
  • Days of the week and times
  • Specific dates and ranges

Phones - displays all the information on any device associated with your extension.

Call History - view, filter, and export your personal call history. 


Most of our clients use the Polycom VVX 300 series. Don't have the VVX 300? Check out articles on our other phones.

The Academy has several instructional articles to assist you; familiarize yourself with the basics: 


Use star codes for efficiency.

*11 - Pull a call from one phone to another. Both phones must be connected to the same extension. 

*51 - Log into a call queue. If you are connected to more than one call queue, this star code will log you into all of them. 

*52 - Log out of call queue. If you are connected to more than one call queue, this star code will log you out of all of them. 

*67 - Mask/hide caller ID. Enter *67 and then immediately enter the number you want to dial out. 

*73 - If you have set your extension to forward to your cell phone after hours, in the morning instead of removing the forward in SONAR, you can dial *73 from your phone, and it will remove the forwarding answering rule and reset it to ring your phone.

*78 - Activate Do Not Disturb.

*79 - De-Activate Do Not Disturb.

*98 - Access voicemail account. *98 only works if you do not have your voicemails configured to go to your email. 

*90 - Transfer calls directly to voicemail. *90 can be used after an attended call transfer is not answered and the caller wishes to leave a voicemail to the intended recipient.
