Review: Vonage

I love plugging things that I love as much as I hate shilling for things that are lackluster. Vonage is in the former category. There’s something so great about having telemarketers for the phone companies hang up on me when they find out I’m on Vonage – they just can’t compete. I just have to chuckle when they offer me 5¢/minute long distance, and I’m amazed that anyone’s willing to pay for long distance by the minute anymore.

I actually have three Vonage lines: one personal, one business, and one business fax (which comes free with the business line!) They all work great, and I’ve never had anyone notice that I’m using a VOIP phone. While I also have an iPhone, the low price of the Vonage plans let me keep the “land-line” access as well, which I find super-convenient. Oh, and the features that come free with Vonage – three-way calling, caller ID, call forwarding, etc. – make it all the more attractive.

All that to say, I highly recommend using Vonage if you have a need for a land-line phone. It’s convenient, cost-effective, and high quality. Now, while Vonage didn’t pay me in any way to write this, both you and I can get a deal if you put my number (9194621888) in when you sign up. Enjoy, and let me know how it works out for you!
