wow — telephone service over my DSL line. I have just finished installing my Vonage service and I am truly impressed. With Vonage, a Voice over IP program, I do not rely on my local phone company for phone service. This is so cool!!!
Here are some of the features of Vonage:
- I can listen to voicemail messages online
- For $24.99 month i get phone AND unlimited long distnace
- I can get a number in a different area code that will be routed through my number meaning, since my mother lives in florida, i can get a number that is a local call for her so she is not charged long distance
- i can get a 1-800 number if i want too
this is so cool. Now, there is a disadvantage. Since the phone is through my DSL, if DSL goes down (or no power), I have no phone, therefore, I will be keeping the 911 service on the landline as just in case backup. I can deal with not having a phone. However, I need to be able to reach emergency if I need to.
