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 systems
2) 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.
