I was wondering if anyone has MagicJack phone service? I think it is $50 for first year (basically its the cost of buying the gizmo), and then nominal monthly fee there after.
I've been trying to get my internet/cable/phone costs down. And after getting Comcast prices, packages etc (they certainly like to upsell), I think I found a way to save some $$.
Like you need to know (ha) -- I have cable, internet and phone (landline) with them ---- and if I cancel the landline and go down from my triple play my cost goes up $10 (at least says this rep). Right now I'm thinking of just keeping internet with them and use a streaming device. Up until last month I had my phone and internet with Verizon (but no longer available in my bldg). I kept the landline since it was nominal and liked the security.
Not a smart move on my part ---- I rented their modem for years. And the modem is $14.88/month, I think in my other room a box was $5. I should have just bought my own modem etc and it would have paid for itself and saved me money.
And you really have to ask lots of questions, they will quote you a price (at say a super fast speed) but typically not mention that you can save some money if you drop to a slower speed (that still would be fine for my needs). Or they might not mention, well if you do X . And don't start me on the different deals/prices for new customers etc. Sometimes you can negotiate a good deal with these providers.
