Ooma. Theres nothing better or cheaper available now. Ooma is fantastic.
Got so tired of vonage that I switched back to a landline.
I use something called Teleblend (voip). It works, and I pay them about $15 every month, but that's about all I know about it.
I am using my mobile phone AND Skype. When I need to work with client on something for a long time (I do business consulting a lot) I use Skype - it's just more convenient. Cut my phone line awhile ago.
Anyone know any good non-old school type of service. People use the Broadband VoIP a lot, which service would be the best for that?
Pay as you go is much cheaper that a rated plan. Such as voip.ms is much cheaper for me that vonage, as I pay like $5 bucks a month for 2 separate lines.
I think I have to keep my LAN line because of the need for my bellsouth DSL line.Does anyone use a air card for web access?..which one?
We have a VoIP connection at our house just because my mom doesn't want to delete the phone number. I only use it to call my cell phone when I can't find it.
It would also be interesting to note, for comparative purposes, how long folks have been without their old school landline. 5 years ago the overall percentage of consumers using alternatives to landlines was very small, but I suspect your audience was also ahead of the curve at that time.
I use Vonage. The unlimited calls to India saves tons of money
Vonage is only choice for me because of the free calls to international landlines in Europe. Saves me $100's a month.
I still have the landline for my DSL connection.
Not sure how you could beat the $10 Tmobile@Home UMA unlimited calling. Unless you don't want a cell phone.
@Eric: link please to phone based remote entry service?
I use my mobile phone for most calls, but my "old school landline" has it's uses: 1) Alarm systems2) Conference calls (it's embarrassing when my iPhone drops calls, and Skype is much worse)3) Disaster recovery (during Hurricane Ike in Houston last year, my mobile did not function a good portion of time, but my landline was solid)
I have a landline at home, but rarely make calls from it. I keep it for two reasons- I have it hooked up to my remote entry in my condo, and it's a bundled service with internet and satellite. Otherwise, I stick with the mobile phone.
ATT Wireless coverage is pathetic in Woodside.
I actually use that very Fisher Price model. It's the only phone I could find with wheels.
