I had just decided to switch us to Vonage for phone service. I am in the middle of my service being transferred. It could take up to 14 days for our old phone number to transferr over they said. They gave me a temp number to use while transferr is taking place. I was getting angry with SBC. They keep nickle and diming us for stuff. I don't use long distance maybe very rarely. So I drop AT andT long distance. Did not want a long distance provider. SBC said well with them there is no monthly fee for long distance. It's like 10cents a minute in the US. Now I see some service fee for long distance of 2$. All I got is basic service with a voicemail. I have no caller ID or call waiting etc. I pay 35$ and some odd cents a month. We barely make any calls to anyone. People call us but not that much. Vonage was 24.99$ a month for unlimited local and long distance service in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico. I get voice mail, Caller ID and all the those features I paid through the nose for at SBC. Of course our son got mad at me for the change. Says well that will mess up the internet. I said I was told no it won't. Kept on me Your stupid for changing. Well I am doing what I can to cut back on how much I pay on our regular monthly living expenses.

Let me know how Vonage works out for you. I'm really interested in it, but my sister got it several months ago and has had really bad luck with it. Sometimes when people call, it simply doesn't ring (on EITHER end); or she won't get a dial tone when she picks up the phone; or when we talk to her, it cuts in and out like a cell phone with bad reception... Other times it works great, though. I hope you have better luck with it! Let us know!

Yeah, I've been considering it too .... but I've been waiting for them to get their "911 service" issues all figured out. There is no way I would have no 911 service with all these little kids in the house :)

I was told we had full 911 service. So I was not worried about that when I signed up. So far no problems with our phone since Vonage was hooked up. It takes like 10 or so days for your old number to transferr over. Caller ID all that works fine. We'll see as the months go by.
