Hello,

I was considering Vonage and have a few questions I'm confused about to ask.

1) I have Verizon DSL and a Verizon phoneline, so I was thinking of canceling my Verizon phoneline and keeping just my DSL and using Vonage for my phoneline, would there be any problems doing this?

2) I currently have a DSL Modem so if I got Vonage I'd put in the Vonage adapter instead of the modem? and my router (d-link) will still function right?

3) I read a post that says the router that comes with Vonage doesn't have QoS.. i thought Vonage only gives you a Voip adapter?..

4) would there be any problems just canceling my phoneline, because there is no point having both verizon phone and Vonage phone... just wastin' my money..

Thanks, if you can point me to some information that'l be great, I also read throuhg some of the Vonage FAQ's and didn't find much,

Thank you. Smile

1. Check with Verizon to see if they offer DSL without needing a phone number. I think they do, but I'm not sure.

2. Your best bet would be to plug your Vonage adapter into your D-Link router. All Vonage needs is an active, open connection to the Internet. In that case, you can get one of the routers Vonage offers and use it only as a Vonage device, or you can get one of the Vonage-only devices like the PAP2 or one of the cordless phone systems.

3. Vonage can give (sell) you a router with Vonage, or just a Vonage/VoIP adapter, or a cordless phone with Vonage built in. In your case, a Voip adapter is probably the best bet, since you already have a (presumably working) router.

4. See #1. That's a question you'll have to ask Verizon. Though maybe a Verizon customer can answer it.

1) you have to maintain a phone line with verizon for you to keep the dsl
suggestions:
a) you can downgrade the line (the one you have right now) that you will use to maintain the dsl to the very basic service so that u can have Vonage for ur local and longdistance calling
b) u can have verizon FIOS --you dont need a phone line to keep the internet connection
c) u can switch to cable internet

call them first and verify evrything--they might charge you higher for your internet service or something if you downgrade..

Actually in some locations Verizon does offer DSL without a phone line. I was in the process of ordering one when they told me I could get FIOS (I did a little happy dance in my cube.) You need to call and ask Verizon, and ask them about FIOS too.

Thank you everyone for your help, I gave it a second thought and since I only pay about $20 a month for my phone and $15 a month for DSL which comes out to about 40-50 a month I figured I'll just stay with my current setup since switching to Voip won't really save me any money or anything else worthwhile.

THANK YOU!!!

There are other reasons to switch to Vonage besides simply cost. With Vonage all the features you would pay extra from Verizon come for free and you get some features that aren't available.

In addition, although you are probably only paying $20 per month for phone service, I found I was paying another $20 in taxes and fees. Unfortunately you may have to pay those for your DSL line.

I am in the EXACT same boat. I cannot get cox here so its not an option. I have been researching this matter. In some parts of my state it is possible to get stand alone DSL W/O phone service. This is still being worked on and will proberly be available in maybe another or so everywhere as stand alone . If NOT available as stand alone you can switch your POTS (plain old tel service) line to mesured local service. Drop any long distance carrier you have for savings. Depending on your state /market region measured service here costs under $10 a month before taxes. The measured local service allows you 90 minutes talk time a month on LOCAL CALLS. You can receive UNLIMITED calls inbound. toll free 800 calls are unlimited as well. Even though this costs a little extra each month the advantage to this is it provides you a POTS BACKUP line for 911 calls, power outage or BB outage. You can still use your POTS line as a second line to receive unlimited calls . You would use your Vonage for all other local and toll and long distance outgoing calls.

The Vonage box does not replace the modem. I think that was one of his questions.
