Home phone replacement

by Partsman41953 / June 21, 2013 1:08 AM PDT


I am thinking about replacing my home land line to save money. I do have a cell phone but hardly use it since I work out of my house. My cell phone is only pay as you go so I really do not have a monthly bill for that. I am paying around $55 a month for my land line. Are there any other options out there now to lower the cost or should I just stay with my land line.

It's a personal choice.

The land line fee sounds pretty high to me. Even here in SoCal with a all of USA and Canada unlimited plan mine is 35 a month so it may be time to go shopping. There are some options for other cell plans depending on where you are and coverage if you are to cut the cord.

To mix it up further you have an internet access issue as well to consider but consolidating and addressing you phone(s), cable, satellite, cellular and what other telecom plans can save a lot in a year.

In reply to: Home phone replacement could look at Ooma too. Sometimes I have seen their VoIP devices/service for sale @ Costco (etc.) for $99.
