    I need to cut expenses and have been thinking about this one. We don't have cell phones and don't want one either.

    Not sure if this company is just a regular phone company or is if it is a cell company.

    Any ideas on this?

    Vonage is done thru your computer... I assume you don't have dial-up? as I don't think it'd work with that.

    A lot depends on the strength of your bandwidth. Those I have seen use it in the US have no problems with Vonage or Skype, there are other companies as well and you may want to compare rates.

    Living in Mexico where the telephone company has oversold its bandwidth, I either get an echo, delayed relay, or minute 'outages' while talking, except in the early mornings, making it almost useless. But that's Mexico, not the US. (And the company our landlady uses is Vonage).

    But who knows... Maybe it also depends on where you live too, even if you are in the states, not sure. . . there are still some very small phone companies here and there.

    hope that helps!?
