* * * * GUEST BLOGGER * * * *


A “few days ago” ...or weeks ago.... G threw me the phone bill and says....”Do something about that!”

So me, being a geek and a research addict, I started researching VOIP providers.

VOIP =- Voice Over Internet Protocol. It's kind of like SKYPE, but it doesn't go through a computer......just the Internet. It didn't take long for my elementary math skillz to slap me up side the head.... DUDE..Thats a $140 per month savings !!!

Ok, on the surface it sounds good, but what about quality and all the mushy details that we will notice and possibly hate if it's a joke.. I turned to the reviews on the many tech websites that I love. User reviews are good, but you have to take them as a grain of salt....I mean the user that gives things a 1 star saying that it never works....are they for real or are they just dumber than a box of rocks? On the other side of the coin there is the guy that says it's better than sliced bread and has really only used it once in the last 3 months.

Anyway........the company I chose to try is ITP. So far it has been great! Great sounding crisp calls.

Tons of features including voice mail, multiple phone lines, call routing, call forwarding, and call waiting which includes some good ole' music for the party on hold to listen to! We were able to keep our same phone number and the best of all... the plan we went with only cost $9.99 per Month !!!



It was fun being a guest blogger ! !


P.S. Let me know if you want more details!!

Phone service post coming tonight, but here's this while you wait. Apparently I inherited the same disease as my grammy and gpa plattner. Grammy and grandpa were never in agreement of what the heat should be set at, same with Jas and I. He likes it at 72 I like it at 68. I know you can't tell from the picture but those are 2 plastic cockroaches on top of our thermostat-that was my attempt to scare Jas away.
