Business phone options

6 posts in this topic

I'm considering relocating (sub-leasing) my business and do not want to pay for a dedicated phone line through Frontier.

Other than using my cell phone, are there any other options out there?

I will have access to the internet by tagging on to their service.

You could try the voice over IPs like Vonage I believe. I guess I don't know exactly how they work but might be an idea.

If the company you are subleasing from has T1s, you may be able to get one of the lines if they have an extra. I know at the last place we were at we had T1s and adding a phone line was just a matter of plugging in some cables.

My copusin has been using Magic Jack and he says it is awesome. Just $29 or something for a year or two, and it is a USB device you use through your computer. I have heard good and bad about it, so not sure myself. I bet you could get a trial from them and see.

I tried Vonage a couple years ago, and I had plenty of bandwidth (Comcast Tier II, pretty good) and the right equipment, and my wife almost divorced me over how bad our phone service was. I cannot NOT recommend Vonage enough. Some people do have good luck with them though.

For $29 I would say Magic Jack is worth a try. I keep saying I am going to try it, but haven't yet. Can get at Best But or over internet direct.

I didn't care for Vonage. Went to comcast and like it. I have heard good things about magic jack.

I posted about them and did not get one good report. Makes a guy a bit wary.

Not sure if this is what you are getting at, but if you already have a business line you can dead head it at the phone company and have them forward the calls to your cell phone.

Depending on the phone company, they may release the phone number so that you can transfer it as your new cell #

Something a little different.

Thats something I did when we moved from SE metro to SW metro, it was the only way to keep my business # the same.

    • I highly doubt it needs carb kits if only sat that long. Draining the carb bowls and spraying carb cleaner in there can clean things up a lot and loosen sticky floats. Should be a main jet on each carb you can pull to drain carb bowls and spray into and clean jet. Put in fresh gas with seafoam in it and new plugs and it will probably run. Impeller is a pretty easy job to. Should be able to find a video on u tube on how to do it. I would drain my carb bowls on my old 115 2 stroke every spring and you would be surprised at the slimy stuff that came out of them sometimes and that was just sitting over winter.
    •   Have you tried to get it out in the water and running it at higher speeds for a while to see if it will clear it's self?
    • Trying to get some idea as to how much I will need to spend to get my 1997 Yamaha 30 hp running again.  The motor sat for nearly 11/2 yrs after I had bought it. before I got around to starting it in Oct.  I followed the owner's manual recommendation to use pre-mix 50:1 gas oil, even though it has oil injection.  Anyway, motor would start(Elec. start), not real quickly, but after starting, would begin to cough and then choke out after a few seconds.This happened repeatedly despite different choke settings, etc.until I finally thought it better to quit fooling with it.  Called a repair place in my hometown outside the metro and he wanted to wait till Spring to look at it.  Said it probably needs new carb kits or carbs and plugs.  Also want him to put in new impeller and lower unit seals. Just wondering what an ave. fair price would be to have that done, provided there isn't anything else wrong?  I live in SW Metro area, but really don't know where to take it around here that I trust anymore. any ideas, help would be greatly appreciated.  Repairman didn't want to give est. without looking at it.  Can't blame him, but don't want to get totally ripped off either.
    •   Actually, I have a case of 17 Beers left that I bought to the GTG last weekend still. Someone drank one! Since I'm not a big Beer guy I have been going over all the things I can make with beer. Beer Cheese soup, beard, fish batter, boil some wild rice venny brats in beer? Or just give it to one of my buddies?
    • Actually no one from either side, none, notta, zip.  
    • Large segments of the right and left are probably wishing they teamed up for Johnson right about now, they might not admit it but if they could go back and change their vote I wonder how many would. One thing is perfectly clear and that is neither Trump or Hillary was the answer. However they more than likely speed up the process of dumping the two party system so it's all good.
    •   If there is no easy money to be made the bad guys will do something else, you won't eliminate them completely unless you legalize everything but maybe they move on to something else. Take away that money and you solve a lot of problems at once for a lot of people. Not much incentive for people to sell hooch these days and it is as simple as that.

      I don't think you realize how bad the war on drugs is, we are talking world wide impact here. Heck in Mexico alone how many people are the cartels killing, it is a blood bath down there. Remove the millions that they make and that motivation is gone. How many police had been killed in drug related incidents in the past 50 years? The overdose deaths and accidents are going to happen no matter what you do, there is no stopping those but maybe you can prevent them with better treatment programs. You also have a massive prison population with large numbers of them incarcerated for drug crimes, now I'm now about letting violent offenders free but the rest of them are worth a look on a case by case bassi. Then you look at all of the above and all how all of their families have been affected by it. If you want to start helping people you need to start by ending the war.
    • Wow! That's pretty low. You should be ashamed!
