Are you ready to streamline, optimize and simplify your telecommunications? Are you looking for an inexpensive cellular plan or maybe a low-cost landline?
Low-Cost Landline: $5.00
I decided I wanted a quasi-landline but didn’t want a monthly bill. My purchase of an Ooma has been great! The cost was a little over a hundred dollars for the unit and less than $5 a month for various required federal, local taxes and 911 service.
I hooked up an old push-button phone to my Ooma; I can relax on the sofa and have a long friendly conversation without using up my cellular minutes. The feel of the phone in my hand reminds me of a simpler time when we weren’t connected 24/7; a conversation was something we took time for. I also wanted the Ooma to connect my building’s security intercom system to a landline and not use my cell phone.
The Ooma comes with a handy app that I use to access my phone log and information. The setup is incredibly easy. If you’re interested in cutting cost and not features you really should check out the Ooma, for an elegant solution to your home phone needs.
I only review and recommend items I use and approve of, and Ooma passes the Urban Kitten test.
If you have a small business and need a little extra service or 800 number check out the Ooma office.
Inexpensive Cellular Plan: $35
My choice for cellular service is Consumer Cellular, I’ve received excellent service, never had an issue when traveling and it runs on the AT&T network. What more can you ask for?
My plan with Consumer Cellular includes 250 talk minutes for $15 a month, unlimited text and 3G data for an additional $20 a month. When I’m traveling, I tend to use the personal hotspot feature and temporarily increase my plan to either 5G or 10G for an extra $10 or $20 a month. Also if you’re a talker, the unlimited talk is only $20 a month.
I’ve been using Consumer Cellular for about three years, and I have no plans on switching.
For you Verizon fans, a new competitor was just introduced in the market, VISIBLE runs on the Verizon network, and for $40 you get for unlimited data, text, minutes. Gizmodo wrote up an excellent review of the service. Link to Gizmodo article. https://gizmodo.com/verizon-launched-a-mysterious-new-company-with-unlimite-1825957054
Low-Cost Small Business Phone Solution: $2.99
If you also run a part-time small business want to keep your cost down check out the TextFree Voice app for 2.99 a month, you get an ad-free experience and a phone number that won’t expire. I upgraded to the iPhone 8 Plus, instead of selling my old iPhone 6 I use it as my business phone with the TextFree Voice and Text apps.
