Have you ever really looked at your monthly home phone bill? I have been going over and over my home phone bill and found that I am paying $49.00 a month for a home phone that we really hardly ever use any more. You do on occasions want to call maybe your parents or family members and sit and talk without running up your cell phone bills or using all your minutes.
With this in mind I started looking at ways to use my Internet connection to make phone calls to normal phones. I first have found Skype which has been working well. You only pay $3.00 a month and call anywhere in the US and Mexico. If you would like a phone number that people can call you on it would be another $30.00 per year. Still not $49.00 a month so I am already saving money. But without a special box you have to be at your computer to make a phone call.
While this is good my wife said the olny way I could cut our local phone is to find a way to connect our home desktop or cordless phones to the Internet to make and receive calls.
I found this product MagicJack. If you order it now you can try it out for 30 days with no charge to you. The way this device works is you connect it to your computer using a USB plug and then you connect you home cordless or any phone to it. When you pick up the phone there is a dial tone and you can call anyone just as you normally would. OKay there is the cost, how about $20.00 a YEAR! That’s it $20.00 a year and I can call anyone and talk as long as I want to.
I just ordered a demo and I will let you know how it works after I install it and get it working.
My next thing is to call the local phone company and see if I can keep my DSL without having to have a phone in my house? Well I will follow up with you later.
