Message 31 of 45, Views Today I had a Verizon representative come by for the customer winback program and explained how competetive they are and the improved servicing. I listened and as a former Verizion Fios customer now Brighthouse, gave him information that I could best recall fro him to give me a quote to compare. While I was working in my garage at the time and frankly not quite checking everything he was telling me, he handed a piece of paper that showed the services I gave, then went back to a program and he printed up an estimated bill which totalled what I said above. Then he asked me to intial his paper which he explained was only his contact report and not a contract. He said it was NOT a contract, they his estimate was a 24 month period where the price was locked, but there was NO contract or termination fee. I admit I did not scrutinize the paper and told him I would check with my wife who handled the bills and knew more about the comparisons than I did. He said just sign his quote and I would receive an email to fully subscribe to exactly the services we wanted. My mistake to not fully inspect it while I was distracted working and trying to leave.

Culture How to work around Straight Talk’s visual voice mail limitation As most iOS users have discovered, switching to Straight Talk means giving up visual voice mail. Straight Talk doesn’t support visual voice mail. In fact, on my iPhone 4S, I receive no notification whatsoever that new messages are waiting for me. It’s not often an issue, but the last thing I want is to miss an important message from a work contact or family member.

I immediately thought of YouMail, a visual voice mail service that’s actually more robust than what’s built into iOS. Alas, according to a YouMail support page , the service doesn’t work with Straight Talk unless you’re willing to jailbreak your iPhone and monkey around with APN files. Consequently, I’d just about written off any kind of voice mail for my iPhone. But it turns out there are two options, both of which work quite well. Here’s how to get set up with either of them: Google Voice The Google Voice app will notify you of new voice mail messages.

You come home, take your jacket off, and set your purse or briefcase down near the door. Cellphones rule in lots of places — we can call for car help when stranded along a highway, find friends in a crowd, and be nagged by co-workers or spouses at any time and place. But the old-fashioned wired phone wins at home.

When someone calls your house line, extension phones all over the house ring, and can be used to answer the call. With a cellphone at home, you have to schlep it everywhere you go. So, this week we took a look at two products that aim to solve that problem by tying your cellphone into your wired home phone setup. They allow you to use your home phones, including extensions in every room, to place and receive calls through your cellphone and your cellphone calling plan.

Both work by directing your incoming cellular calls to a wired phone — and allowing outgoing calls to be made through your wireless network using these telephones. The RCA product comes with a special cordless telephone that links to a cellphone docking station, while the Dock-N-Talk is a small box that connects any corded or cordless home telephone to your cellphone. These products also allow users to toggle back and forth between a landline and a cellular line, though we tested it only in a house where cellphones had already eliminated the need for a landline.
