Straight Talk offers a home phone service. This is meant to replace the expensive phone service that your cable or internet company offers. It actually serves a two fold purpose:
- 1. Helps cut the monthly landline home phone bill to next to nothing.
2. Allows you to have one phone number, instead of two. Most people have two numbers: One for their home land line and another for their cell phone.
With as good as the quality of a cell phone has gotten over the past 5 years, there really is no more reason to own a landline phone, much less pay upwards of $25 every month to keep this antiquated technology. The only downside to switching to a home phone set up with Straight Talk is that you will have to give up your landline number. That usually isn’t a big deal in this day and age, and the only people that might be affected are senior citizens, who aren’t too hip on technology and the sheer act of writing down a new number or memorizing it can be a daunting task to say the least.
After you watch that video, you will see that this is the best way to not only save month, but simplify your life. Not having to pay a second phone bill every month, or try to remember which company or friend or business associate has your landline phone number or cell phone number is a great reason to make the switch. Also, the system with Straight Talk automatically switches from internet to cell phone service, based on the strength of the signal.
Let’s pretend your Aunt Gertrude calls you at home, and you’re using the Straight Talk Wireless home phone system. Your cellular phone rings and Gertrude says hello and starts talking her head off about her new kittens. She goes on and on for 4 hours straight. Not wanting to be rude, you listen politely, but realize you have to go to the grocery store to buy dinner. All you need to do is grab your car keys and walk outside your home. The phone will automatically switch from the WiFi that it (internet connection) that it is currently running on, to the wireless mobile network that is the strongest in the area you live in. Once the signal from your WiFi router is weak, the switch is made seamlessly and automatically and you nor Gertrude will notice the difference.
In conclusion, this is the best way to go if you’re looking to save even more money. If you can afford to wait a few months, try checking our deals page every few days. Sometimes Straight Talk runs sales on this wireless device and you can get it for free, or next to nothing. The current cost is $99, but they are currently (as of this posting) offering a reconditioned Huawei H226C router for free.
