Hi Moms,

We're looking for ways to save money and one area I think we could get a better deal on is on our home phone services. We currently have Talk America and pay $70 a month with all the fees and no long distance is included. Can anyone recommend a better home phone service company that costs less once all the hidden fees are added in?


What can I do next?

I am not exactly sure how much our phone is, but I am pretty sure it's less then that. We just switched to WOW and have cable, internet, phone,HBO,HD and DVR all for $138.00 - good for 2 years. They are really nice. We really haven't had any problems, but have only had them for a month. We had comcast before, but like a previous poster we had no cable and phone on several times. I finally had enough and switched to WOW.

There is that new Magic Jack. A friend of a friend has it and he says it works great. I think you have to have your computer on to get calls though. Also, if you by chance have T Mobile for your cell, you can get T Mobile at home for $10 a month.
Also, before we moved into an area WOW doesn't yet service we had WOW and we LOVED it. We paid just over $100 a month for phone, 3 cable boxes, high speed internet. They reps are friendly, fast, and correct. If you can get it in your area I highly recommend WOW.

We do Vonage.It includes every feature in the world --including email voice messages. It runs on our DSL line, but the service has been good. It also includes free long distance to Canada, Ireland, England, Italy and, I think, France. We have relatives abroad, so it saves us tons.

I think it's something like 25 a month.

I pay $40 for Comcast with the bundling package (phone, internet, cable). I had many service problems in February - 3 Sundays the phone went out.

I did check into at&t and the pricing was exactly the same. $40 unlimited local and long distance with caller id, call waiting and some other features.

We were very tired of paying the high phone bills for our landline. So we got Vonage, and even the smallest package, which is 500 minutes/ month, voicemail, called ID, etc. and it works great for us. It ends up costing us a little over $20/month. I find that we don't need the unlimited package, this one covers us. If you are interested, I have a referral code that will get you two months free. Private message me and I will send it to you.
