So today I signed us up for Vonage. Within the next 20 days we’ll be paying $15 a month for 500 minutes local and long distance combined. Just a bit cheaper than the $40-50 we pay each month. And we get more with Vonage – call waiting, call forwarding, call transfers, voice mail, free caller id – those of you with Vonage know all about it.
You run your phone through your computer on broadband instead of using a regular phone line. Because of this you can actually check your messages ONLINE, which is so cool since on our current voicemail machine I can only listen to a message once when I dial-in – we don’t know the code to make it replay.
We had two referrals for Vonage from friends of ours, but I opted to sign up for DVRs4Free.com, another website where you get stuff for free based on referrals. This one is for a free Tivo. I already got Ace to sign up for Columbia House through the system, so I have one referral and four to go and voila – another Tivo is mine!
