Jott: Now Available in Canada!

Early this year I blogged about Jott.

There was, however, one very significant caveat:

Unfortunately, I cannot attest to how well this actually works.

I live in Canada, and the public beta only supports US-based cell phones -(

I am delighted to report that the US-only restriction no longer applies, as Jott is now available to Canadian-based cell phones!

All you have to do is call 647 724 5814.

(For those that don’t know, 647 is a Toronto-based exchange that handles the overflow from the original 416 exchange. This may also mean that long-distance charges are applicable.)

I’m running through some basic tests and am impressed by what I’ve experienced so far.

Since Canadian-based DICtabrain is apparently dead, this makes Jott’s arrival on the Canadian scene even more compelling.

[Thanks to Shree from Jott for letting all of us know!]

  1. Perhaps by starting the conversation it will rouse intrest in this amazing FREE tool. I live in BC so to use Jott to its fullest I am charged a long distance fee. It’s still not practical to use Jotts full capabilities (as in calling to “Jott” and have it emailed etc) if I am charged a long distance fee. Now my Jott starts to cost me money for a “free” service.

    Hopefully there will be a number for Vancouver in the near future. 🙂

  2. I feel your pain! I work in Toronto, but live outside the GTA. This means I also pay for my Jotts from home. A Canada-wide 800 number would be nice 🙂

  3. There’s a new competitor to Jott on the scene call “Reqall” AND THEIR 888 NUMBER WORKS FROM CANADA. Visit it at

    Reqall has managed to get around the fact that some cell phone companies don’t use caller ID. It’s really quite innovative. When you register, you set up a PIN and when you call the 888 number, you’re required to dictate our PIN, and then dictate your phone number. (Similar to a user ID and password combo I guess.)

    Anyway, I’m trying Reqall. It doesn’t have quite as many features as Jott yet, but it does do tasks, notes and calendar entries. Try it.
