Never pay for phone calls again?Posted: January 23, 2011
I’m on a roll!
Free t.v. is new to me, but not free phone calls! Years ago, I got into it when I didn’t have a cell phone, and the friends I wanted to talk to were all out of town. I didn’t want to get a cell phone just to keep in touch, so someone suggested I get a headset and use my computer.
I just recently let go of my cell phone. Nobody was really calling or texting me on it, and paying $40/month didn’t seem right just for ’emergencies’. I’ve been using the land line. I just recently reconnected with a friend who lives out of town, and I would like to be able to makes calls TO that person, without asking them to call me all the time or running up the long distance phone bill on the land line. So now I’m back to using the internet phone.
You won’t be able to use these services to call outside the U.S. or Canada (except for Skype!) and you can’t use them to make emergency calls. A land line will do for those.
