have you tried a VoIP phone yet? Yes.2.
how does it work? Through numerous softwares that communicate with other networks softwares, which includes telephone networks software.3.
is it less cheaper if i ise a VoIP unit instead of my telephone line? Yes.
You can use something like Skype
, and pay (I think it's $38 per year) + your internet connection, and there's your phone bill.
I've been using VoIP for a few years now and it's better than a traditional phone line, and mainly because a VoIP call can't be intercepted, even from the NSA.
They can't do it. Right now technology doesn't allow for those types of calls to be monitored, nor intercepted, nor recorded.
Also, with VoIP, you can call anyone, mostly anywhere in the world, and you'll stay anonymous. Even the phone companies can't trace, nor monitor those calls.
But if you get a VoIP phone set, you need to make sure that you have these things:a.
A fast internet connection
. I would personally go no lower than cable.b.
Have a fast processor
in your computer, and plenty of R.A.M.c.
A decent mic/headset
... or just go buy a VoIP phone. Personally, I haven't heard any quality differences in the two of them, so if you just have a mic/headset, that's all you need, and you're good to go.
VoIP is way better than a traditional, and cell phone, and satellite phone line. No matter which VoIP service you use, you're safer using them than any other phone method around.
And if you want to go really out while you're on the phone (VoIP), you can get you a voice changer software
, and you can call anyone, and even if others call you, you can be anyone you want to be.. male or female, old or young... you name it.
Heeyyyy, technology made it.... so I use it.
And one great benefit with the VoIP......... when you pay for a service... and even some FREE
ones.. (if you can still find them)..... you can have any no# you want, including area code, and then, have that no# forward to your real no#.... so technically, no one will have your real no#, if you don't want them to have it, and you can forward the no# you're going to be at, at anytime you wish, no matter where you are.Very effective.
I use a service that lets me list up to 5 numbers, and it'll ring each no# in order until I answer, and it has the function as to where I can have certain no#'s ring at certain times and
days of the week.
Go get you one!!!
