About 2 weeks ago we purchased the ooma:It’s a VoIP phone that uses your internet provider to create a landline for you. You can either plug it into your phoneline system of the house and use any phone jack in the house, or you can just plug a regular phone directly into the device itself. You also get a phone number and it only costs you the government fees every year…. ~$12/year. There is the upfront cost, but in reality the cheapest monthly phone price I can find is $10 + govt fees and taxes/month. So it should pay for itself in the next year or so, but with Jonathan now we feel that we will probably always have a landline so that there is always a phone in the house even when we’re not.So far we’ve used it a couple times and no one is the wiser that we’re using a VoIP phone. And another cool thing that I thought of was that as long as I go somewhere with an internet connection, I can plug this in and make calls for free with my number. And, I assume that people can call to me…. If I want that.It’s my new toy of the week, that will hopefully save us millions!
