Making Right Call Cuts Telephone Bill


Vonage In Print News



October 23, 2005

By Gregory Kapp

Cutting telephone costs is one of the most painless ways to trim a household budget. But it's difficult to stay on top of the changes in such a fast-moving industry, in which technology is changing quickly and better offers seem to be weekly events.

"For consumers, it means they have a lot more options available to them," said John Breyault, a spokesman for the Telecommunications Research and Action Center. "It's actually harder for consumers to find the best deal to meet their needs."

Here's a roundup of some new and seldom-used offerings for home and wireless phone service that could save you money.

Free 411

Using directory assistance can cost 40 cents to about $2.50 each time you need a phone number. But a new service announced in September will give you free lookups, connect your call and let you talk for several minutes at its expense. It's called 1-800-FREE411, which is the number you dial to use it. The catch is you might have to listen to a 10-second advertisement.

Wireless Contract Marketplace

Wireless phone customers dislike the outrageous early termination fees for ending a one- or two-year service contract, according to a recent study by the U.S. Public Interest Research Group. The fees usually are $150 to $240.

But there's a little-known work-around. Most contracts allow customers to transfer their contract to someone else. Until recently, that meant you had to find friends or family members interested in assuming the contract. But now a new online service that started during the summer matches wireless customers who want to dump a contract with ones who want one. For details, go to www.celltradeUSA.com.

The benefit for the buyer is avoiding activation fees in most cases, being responsible for only the balance of the contract and possibly receiving a negotiated cash incentive from the seller.

Be aware that the company charges the seller about $20 for making the match. You also should check the transfer details in your own contract and be careful how you complete the transfer if you want to preserve the same phone number with a different wireless provider. Including the phone in the deal is optional.

Free Calling

If you don't mind talking across the miles while sitting at your Internet-connected computer, check out Skype. Using a microphone and speakers, or a headset that includes both, you can call other people who also have the Skype program installed on their computers.

It's free and gets good reviews for ease of use and voice quality. It could be worth the hassle of being tethered to your computer if you make lengthy long-distance calls, especially expensive international calls.

Skype was launched in 2003, but has gained popularity recently, prompting online-auction company eBay to announce last month that it was buying Skype for $2.6 billion.

Cutting The Cord

Saving money by canceling your landline phone and going only wireless has been an option for years, but wireless reception is getting much better, according to a J.D. Power and Associates study released in August. It showed that instances of a wireless call not going through on the first try fell dramatically - by 50 percent - since last year. So cutting the cord is a better option than ever, but make sure it fits your calling habits and you have reception in every room of your house.

Refurbished Cellphones

If you don't want to sign up for a long-term contract to get a wireless company's "free" handset, ask about its refurbished phones. Wireless companies don't advertise that they have refurbished phones because they'd rather lock you into a long-term contract in exchange for a new phone. But most companies have them. Just ask.

Realize, however, that you won't get the latest and greatest features with a phone that's likely to be last year's model. And make sure the phone comes with a warranty of at least a few weeks.

Voip

Twenty percent of Americans thought this weird-looking acronym was a hybrid European automobile, and 10 percent though it was a low-carbohydrate vodka, according to a survey released in September by Verizon VoiceWing, a provider of VoIP, or voice over Internet protocol.

VoIP is technospeak for using a regular phone to place and receive phone calls over your broadband Internet connection rather than a telephone network. It can be a huge cost saver. Most traditional phone companies offer it, but some of the best deals come from smaller companies, such as Vonage (www.vonage.com). Beware that if your electrical service or Internet connection fails, you won't have phone service unless you have a wireless phone.

"A lot of the things that made people wary of the technology are starting to be corrected," said Breyault, who uses Voip in his home and figures that he saves about $30 a month.
