Are You Getting The Most From Your Home Phone Service

Author : Cameron Rochelle   Top Author

A lot of people have moved away from a having a landline in their house but they really may be missing out on some outstanding features and some very low cost services. Having a home phone service that works with you will complement your cell phone while also providing you with calling options that your cell phone may not cover. You don't have to worry about being out of pocket, a landline is reliable, efficient and costs much less than many people think.

One of the really interesting things about the change in the way that people use phones is that it has prompted companies to offer more and more features even in basic packages. Many phone service options now include really spectacular and value added features as part of the basic package. For just a few dollars more a month you can also move to an upgraded service that proves voicemail options and even a way to synch with your cell phone to get those messages even when you are out and about.

Popular features on some of the best home phone service packages are very similar to some of the features found on a cell phone plan. Gone are the days where you paid for every call or were limited to so many free calls a month. Now most of the best packages will offer unlimited local calls and some even offer unlimited long distance calls nationwide. A few offer long distance as part of the unlimited package to countries outside of the United States like Canada and Puerto Rico. If you make a lot of calls to family or to friends in those countries these low cost plans are a cost saving option to consider. There are other programs that offer a low set rate for national long distance that is just pennies a minute.

Of course you will also have access to all the standard types of features you have on your cell phone. These will usually all be included for the price of the package with no additional cost. Generally these programs are standard but some companies offer more or less features. It is well worth comparing the features offered, especially if they are features that your regularly use on your cell phone or a phone you may use at work. Features can include 3-way calling, call rejection for unrecognized and unauthorized callers, call forwarding and return, screening, call waiting and repeat dialing and speed dial programs. Caller ID and caller ID blocking can be wonderful features if you want to know who is on the other line and whether or not to pick up.

Top of the line home phone service packages may also offer a new technology. This provides a voicemail feature, which is fairly standard, but adds a whole new twist. A program will actually record the incoming voicemail and convert it to written text. You can then set up the program to send that written message via an email to whatever email account you want. From there you can access it with your computer or any internet connected mobile phone.

Another cool option that incorporates your home phone service with your existing technology is the option to have caller ID displayed on your TV screen, on you laptop or computer as well as on your smartphone. You never need to worry about jumping up to check the caller ID on the phone if you want to finish watching your movie, playing that online action game or just relaxing and spending some time getting some much needed "me time".
