Phone Magic

I've recently been trying to come up with a way to unify my communications spending. I like all my stuff, I just feel I pay too much for it. Things like having voice mail at home and on the cell phone. Not only is it duplicated effort, I also (theoretically) pay twice for something that is merely a convenience.

Then CR from work mentioned this to me. You get a box that you plug into your broadband internet connection (another expensive convenience), and then you plug your regular telephones into it and tell SBC to pound footballs. Voice over IP. He has it and he likes it. I'm going to give it a try. There are some interesting forwarding options in there, and seemingly you get unlimited, coast-to-coast use for $35 a month.

I will report back if I try it.
