PostPosted: Wed Mar 12, 2008 12:17 am    Post subject: using service when visiting dial-up friend and wifi cafes Reply with quote Back to top

Hello all,

Bear in mind I'm not a tech person.

1. In June or July I will spend 5 weeks taking care of a friend's house. Dial-up is the only internet access there. DSL and cable not even available in my dreams.
A Simply to receive my phone calls from Vonage, I think I can just forward my calls to the landline in the house, or to my cell phone - is this correct? But what about outgoing calls?
B I found out there is an internet cafe 20 miles away at a McDonald's - can I somehow use my Vonage service there?


2. The above is for a temporary situation - but I actually will probably be moving to the same area where my friend lives. So in the long run, I'll only have dial-up too. Sad What would long term solutions be to keeping my Vonage service? I've been spoiled by it and don't want to give it up. Sad I saw that Verizon wireless has plans that might work - but I read another post on here about how that isn't the best solution option. Ideas?

Edited to add: I use a Mac.

You are correct that you can forward your Vonage line to the phone at the house. That will work just fine. You are also correct that this doesn't help outgoing calls.

The internet cafe won't help you use Vonage, unless you use a V phone, but that won't work with a Mac.

If you move to this area and don't have wither cable or DSL you will need to drop Vonage (or any Voip provider).

There are some ways to use Cellular Internet, but these are not simple setups and I would not recommend them, especially if you aren't a tech person.

You might be able to get DSL if there is phone service at the location if you do in fact more there one day. You would want to get naked DSL (also called dry loop) which basically means you are getting DSL without having a normal land line. This may not be possible though if the location is far enough from the phone companies central office.

Sorry I don't have too much positive news, but hope this is helpful.

I would be curious to see if someone has a better option for you on the usage from the internet cafe, but I can't think of one that will work on a Mac.

Thanks very much for helping. I might have dug up some useful info today - if the rep from AT&T is correct - there is a quote in the local newspaper for the rural community stating that AT&T will roll out DSL by mid 2008. If that is true, my problems will be solved.

However, we all know how promises can go wrong. So if anyone still has contingency plans please let me know.

I'll keep that dry loop / naked DSL in mind - I read something about that sort of thing yesterday (although the article was a bit over my head - they talked about lines that are intended for security systems being turned into DSL lines - which sounds like what you're suggesting).

Ideas are always welcome. Thanks!

As I feared, I will still need alternative ideas. The regional manager of AT&T just informed me that although they planned to install the DSL equipment by mid-2008 the customers won't get service until end 2008 - and even that is debatable because there are no dates firmed up. Rats!

So - please keep the good ideas coming. The note about Nake DSL did just save me $7 on my monthly service where I live now. Thanks for mentioning it because I discovered AT&T has a phone number for switching to that service! I now don't need a land line. yay!

From an internet cafe or other computer:

Sign up for Vonage Talk at http://alpha.vonage.com.

Install the software, find the Vonage talk folder in the programs directory and copy it to a flash drive.

open the folder in the flash drive and click on vonagetalk.exe.

You will need to bring a headset (USB would be easiest)

Try it out BEFORE you leave

Very Happy Wow! Never saw that before. Looks like it should work on a Mac, too. Thanks for mentioning that.
