Posted on 07/04/2014 12:20:10 PM PDT by bboop
Does anybody have Verizon Home Phone Connect, and if you do, how do you like it? and do you find it useful? We are concerned that if we get it, our Verizon DSL might be impacted. It would be great to cut our home landline contract, but we're worried about losing the DSL.
Thanks. Loving my FReeper FRiends. Happy Fourth of July.
No idea — but why don’t you ask Verizon? They are the ones who could tell you definitively.
land line should be land line telephone. Obviously there is a twisted pair for DSL to work.
I don’t understand Your question. Is this about how to connect wire to make land line work or some change in Your Service Contract?
HAPPY 4th Everybody!

I have no idea. Would a mind reader have 3 ex wives?
HAPPY 4th Everybody!
You really should do some research and as I said ASK VERIZON.
I just checked on the Internet and found that “Verizon Home Phone Connect” is basically having ONLY wireless phone service. But in those, if you use that to access the internet, they will limit how much internet data you can download and they can charge you quite a lot for it.
Not to mention, if there is a power outage that lasts a while and you won’t have a phone or internet or anything else...
“NOTE: Home Phone Connect may not be compatible with certain home security systems. Please check with your home security system provider to confirm the compatibility requirements of your home security system. Home Phone Connect is not compatible with fax machines, DVR services, credit card machines, medical alert services or some High Speed or DSL Internet services. Please contact your service provider to determine if Internet service is available as a standalone offering. “
That's why God made batteries, inverters, and in extremis, gensets.
There’s really no need to cling to landlines here in 2014. In my household, everybody just carries around a cellphone. No telemarketers, I only pick up my cellphone if somebody from my address book is calling me. Otherwise it goes straight to voicemail.
It's a sociological problem, not a technical problem.
I have it all on verison, I can’t say I’ve had any
trouble with the phone service, although I am thinking
of dropping the phone service and just having my cell.
I wish I had DSL, where I am the download speed is not
very good and sometimes disconnects, they tell me I need
a special receiver for my hotspot for $250.
I feel like I pay for 4g but I’m not getting it.
May switch to something else later.
Straight Talk Home Phone (Is NOT VoIP or landline)
$15 month unlimited North America or $30 month unlimited world-wide
DSL goes via your phone line.
If you drop your landline, your DSL will have to go through your wireless phone and you will pay for the data accessed on internet.
Here are some prices:
If you have internet, you can obtain a device such as “Net Talk.”
They will arrange for your old landline number to be ported to their device, and you will now have phone service over the internet. VOIP, or voice over internet provider, is the name.
My Net Talk device cost under $50. They now have a wireless version. They charge about $35 per year for the service.
I used to spend over $35 for minimal use of the old land line number.
There are several VOIP options, many costing far more.
