Vonage Well after reading a crap ton of posts, I can see that most of the complainers are



Well after reading a crap ton of posts, I can see that most of the complainers are from newbies who are looking to cut maximum dollar off their phone bills. I can understand that. I was in a similar boat when I switched to Vonage 3 years ago.

The only difference I think between me and the ranters is that I had very low expectations of Vonage even from the start, and still today I am happy with the service. Its not like a regular phone where you pay $15 for the line, then get suckered into a package deal for another $20, then crap your pants when you see the tax was another $15 making $20 bill really a $50 bill after everyone's hand was in the cookie jar. Then look at your cell phone bill, same crap.

I remember not even 10 years ago when friends asked me why I was testing cell phones, their comment was why take a phone with you at all, when people have answering machines, pagers, etc. and didn't want to be reached while peeing or watching a movie, etc. And with the cost of cell phones rising (the actual handset), and the service getting worse while the carriers upgrade the crap, cell users still take the abuse and pay their bills. Only to come to these Vonage forums and rant and complain about how they don't want to carry a laptop with them and pay 10$ a month for a softphone feature for 500 minutes.

Next time you are bored, sit down and think about where you use your cell phones, and then decide if you really needed to make even half the calls. Then justify why you are paying $50 a month for it on top of your regular phone bill. When you could probably use your time better and feel less hectic and have better piece of mind saving money while using Vonage or other similar services.

Here was my scenario, I had SBC local service for $45 including taxes and basic 500 minutes of long distance. (10cents p/m after 500 minutes). Then I had a nextel unlimited cell package for $54 a month yet with taxes it was morel ike $75. So that's $130 a month just to use a stinkin phone. We weren't even paying that much in the 80's

Now, I have Vonage at home unlimited for $27 including tax, plus the softphone feature for an extra $10 a month with 500 minutes, when you do the math it works out to be 2cents a minute as opposed to a cell phone's 20 cents + a minute. I even installed softphone onto my Ipaq with windows 2003 loaded and a wifi card. so where ever there is wifi, I can use the Softphone. I even have a wifi repeater at my house so I can use the pda softphone anywhere within reach.

I have succesfully used my pda with softphone at starbucks, borders, mscdonalds, the library (I know) residential streets that leave wifi open, etc.

Basically I lowered my expectations of quality of service for cost, because we all know that you get what you pay for, to save $100 a month on my phone bill.

So those of you ranters who are looking for the something for nonthing deal go elsewhere because that will leave more bandwidth for us users who don't make a habit of setting our expections so high that justifies telling the world how much their life sucks and everyone is out to get them, and ALL corporations want is their money, yada yada yada. There is medicine out there for paranoia, go seek medical help and leave us content folk alone.

Is there a way to use the soft phone with your main phone number? I would like to
I agree, but that's the only softphone option they offer at this time.
If they dont offer it there has to be a way to get it done anyway. seems to me that there
