In other news, after watching my monthly phone bill climb and climb, I am dropping Verizon and switching to Vonage.
Picked up a new 5.8ghz phone yesterday with two handsets and a digital answering machine at Circuit City along with the LinkSys Vonage Router. Got it home, spent 5 minutes plugging them in, and 5 more minutes setting up on the web.
10 minutes later I had a Minnesota phone number in my home in Taunton, Massachusetts and unlimited long distance for $24.99/month.
As I said via IM to a friend yesterday, “why the hell didn’t I do this before?”
