Do you have Cable or Sat internet /Comcast or Charter?

21 July 2009 - 11:50 PM

Hey guys, first let me start off by saying I am no way. Shape. Or form affiliated with Magic jack (internet phone), so please don't think I am trying to sell ya something.. I'm not! In fact I am not even going to post any links. My wife and I went through our bills because times are really tough, so we need to make some cuts on stuff... We have charter high speed internet and it's pretty fast (5 meg). I was thinking about shutting off our landline home phone to save some money since we both have our cell phones. However, we both have big families and talk with people them frequently, so our cell bills will go up due to using more minutes. So I started doing some searching online and found internet phone companies like Skype, Vonage and MagicJack.

Vonage is pricey.

Skype seems really cool. Unlimited calls for $2.95 per month but you have to buy their phone or modem to use it like a land line phone. But I guess you could get a USB phone to work with it, but I didn't feel like waiting for shipping. You can get the stuff at amazon.

MagicJack can be purchased from your local Radio Shack and it has a 30-day return policy if you don't like it. I bought one today for $40 + tax and wow, it works! When you buy it you get one year free service and each year after is $20 per year.. yes I said $20 per year (but who knows if that price will increase next year or not), but still I'll get this year of phone service for a whopping $40 bucks! They don't need your credit card number or anything! You get all the goodies like call waiting and caller ID also...

So, with that, I am happy to announce that we saved about $625 bucks this year. smile.gif

Times are tough right now, so I encourage anyone looking to cut costs right now to run up to your local Radio Shack and pick one up and try it out (it is returnable if you don't like it)... it'll be the best $40 bucks you'll ever spend. Because there is nothing as good of a feeling in life than calling your current phone carrier that is bleeding you to death to.... F-OFF! biggrin.gif

P.S. if you have dial up internet or DSL that attaches to a phone line, don't bother with this, it would defeat the purpose.

Also, the down side to this is you'll need to keep one of your PCs on all the time, because if it is off, it won't work. Vonage I think will work with your PC shut down with the way their modem hooks up...but cost much more. I always leave our computers on. The only time I shut down is to blow the dust out of it.

Might be worth checking out for some people, but not for everyone.

Chicago fans don't want Hossa

18 July 2009 - 07:20 AM

Too funny. They call Hossa a jinx and others say: "No we don't want Hossa. He has no character or loyalty." Apparently Chicago fans have no respect for him... lol and they have to deal with him for the next 12 years. I'm so glad that Holland locked Franzen up instead of Hossa!

Wonder what kind of payout he got from the Hawks incompetence?
