STOP PAYING FOR YOUR HOME PHONE – Let Google do it for Free!

Оценок: 20080 | Просмотров: 886091
Sorry for the wait! This video is all about finally cancelling your ancient home phone line through your cable company, and how to keep it through Google Voice for free! It also touches on how I cut my bill in half after my cable company doubled it every month, and even tripled my internet speed while I was at it!

If you have a Google phone and power goes down a standard phone will still work. If you drop your home phone and power goes down, there is a good chance your phone will still work.

Do you have to have a paid landline to use that box?

Except, the Obi's open a hole in the router firewall, no protection, and they are being hacked. So folks can enter your Obi and take over your gvoice account. Which suffers from picketfencing and static and dropouts at times anyway, it is feature-rich but a lousy overall VOIP service. And they don't care about that, there's no "service department". Cheap is just cheap.

Here in the UK you HAVE to pay for land line to get high speed internet (both cable and POTS copper). You can get 4G internet ,but that cannot compete with wire ethernet on speed. The only use my landline tends to get is from robocalls and scam artist calling me at all times of the day. Roll on 5G,,,,, I might finally be able to get rid of my land line finally !

Thank you for your amazing Youtube channel and believed that you can offer some advice or help to VoIP and Long range Wifi solution. I am new to Vo IP, ATA and IP PBX but I have 3 landlines in my home from our local Telephone company. I have a office just 1 km away from my home. My 3 home landlines are connected to a 3 line 8 extension legacy PBX. I do not want to get another landline for my office 1 km away but intent to use 1 or 2 of extensions from my home for my remote office, so that I can receive call and make call from my office remote extension as if I am at home. My old solution: I get long range wireless cordless phone in my office as extension. I am thinking of a new solution, since I have internet in my office, I can use ATA (eg. ATA with 1 fxs and 1 fxo ports) connected to 1 of my home PBX extension and on the remote office also use 1 ATA connected to a analog phone. Can this be done ?

Did all this many years ago. For those of you out there with a cell account, check to see if they offer a free netflix/hulu account. I have Sprint, and get a free lower level hulu account. I have been paying for netflix, but might get rid of it. I have been paying less than $60 a month for many years. I have not missed any of the TV.

An old fashioned phone connected to a land line from a local provider will work during power failures; cell towers and computers even laptops eventually don't, as I found out during a fire that took out high voltage power lines nearby.

This is of course an older video but people will still be viewing it for a time and I still wanted to chime in on the topic (because land lines are not dead yet) and add a perspective that I think many miss (This is a longer post, warning): There is still one thing about land lines that as old as the tech is, is still superior to all others even today - it's stability. In many situations where VOIP and cellular services will go down (disasters, weather, etc), land lines many times will continue to work. They don't need electricity, and many times the lines are protected from the elements. There have been several instances in my life where my land line continued to work when all others died. I'll give two quick examples below... 1) Twice we've had bad ice storms in my area (suburbs of Atlanta) that caused power to go out for many days. People's VOIP phones go out immediately or within hours if they have a backup battery. Within 3 days their cellular service gets spotty or goes out completely, as the cell towers with generator backups go down, and the carriers aren't able to refuel their generators promptly. But... my land line kept working. This has happened twice in my area and both times literally nearly everyone in my neighborhood wound up at my house to use my land line - the only working phone around the immediate area except for one other. Another time a tornado took out a cell tower nearby - along again with power. Bingo - the land line kept working. Hurricane Sandy in the NYC/NJ area a few years back did the same thing - all VOIP and cellular went down but the few land lines connected to the pay phones that were left? Kept working. The Mayor at the time ordered MORE land line based phones installed after that as a result. You get the point. Land lines don't necessarily make sense for *everyone* to have anymore. But it would be foolish to completely dismiss and get rid of the technology, until such time that VOIP/Cellular systems can be made to be just as stable as they are - and so far they're not close. Until that time they're still handy, so even if you don't use one yourself, please don't support AT&T's effort to have all of them dismantled.

Here's the deal: December of last year I dropped Comcast television services and opted just for their Internet. Fine, no problem with one caveat. I switched my home phone service over to Consumer Cellular and lost faxing capability in the process. So I'm looking for other ways to fax. Don't get me wrong, I really really hated losing the ability to fax from home, but overall, it was worth it. Now looking for an alternate way to fax, I discovered Dev and this video. After viewing the same I have to say: "Are you kidding me??" You make a 13 minute video touting how simple the process is switching to Google Voice when it's anything but simple, for anyone who cares enough to really "listen". There was one advantage though. It reminded me that I already did some homework on this unit and decided that the effort to get what I wanted was far too great. So I'll just stick to what I need instead. Thanks Dev.

pink dragonfly ******* I use hangout dialer, and I can tell you that it is full of way too many bugs. It is so bad and has gotten much worse over the past few months that I have had to get an actual cell phone service because half of the calls I get do not ring Into My Hangouts dialer for me to answer them. Hangouts dialer has not been updated in 3 years and it's becoming increasingly you useless. It is great for outgoing calls over Wi-Fi but when it comes to receiving incoming calls reliably, it completely sucks!

He is pushing an Amazon product. And just like all of these other fake technology gurus on YouTube that are pushing shotty Amazon products for crooked Amazon sellers, it is indeed a sales pitch just like you said. Anytime I see an Amazon link on a text video when I am watching YouTube, I click right off of it. Because Amazon is full of nothing but crappy products and counterfeit merchandise from very bad sellers along with thousands of fake positive reviews. I will have nothing to do with any YouTuber who pushes Amazon products.

Ok I have a question. I tried this same method for my home phone with Vonage. I transferred the number from vonage to the T-Mobile sim card. When I try to port my number over to google, google is saying they will send me a verification code to my phone number that I just ported over to the t mobile sim card. Well, that's the problem. I don't actually have a t mobile phone im using. I just transferred the number over to the sim card,  so I could port it over to Google voice, so now what? Im stuck

Only problem with oboihai is that they have a history of forcing your device into retirement, blocking you off their site and saying you need to buy a new device to get service back. Very inconvenient and expensive if you are overseas. They said my obi100 could not work with google voice anymore and people who know nothing about voip actually believe that these boxes get old and just can't keep up anymore, as if its an iphone or something. Anyway - Hacked my obi100 and it works just fine. Proving beyond a shadow of a doubt, they just force upgrades. It works great, but you are at the whim of google voice, who makes no guarantees and obihai, who;s guarantees are not honored. Plus, they will start charging you for updates to your firmware - If you are lucky enough and they actually keep producing patches for it.

Mike Whit (1 месяц назад)
The big difference in land line vs Internet is when the Internet goes down on a power outage your phone is down but on a land line your phone still works because the power is supplied by the phone company not the utility. As for Google i would not trust them with any of my info lol. But you can get a cheap price for and line i pay $27 a month no long distance.

I keep a home landline. But never use it unless I need to dial 999. It's saved my life a couple of times. As the emergency services can pin point a landline to a address. Couple of severe asthma attacks. I could barely breath never mind talk. If health was good. I would ditch the landline. I get unlimited mins. Text and unlimited data on my phone. Very cheap also £25 per month. Approx $33. Speeds are great 4g. / LTE average DL 100mbps UL 80 I can also use my phone as a hotspot. I also have free roaming in over 70 countries. Only restriction when roaming is 13gb of data is the most I can use per trip. But back here in the UK it's truly unlimited. Often smash 500Gb per month. I don't even bother anymore with fixed line broadband

We still use a home phone by virtue of the fact that almost all of our businesses, kid's schools, and family have all had our home number for at least 20 years. We also don't like to give out our cell numbers indiscriminately.

some detail may be missing. Before buying obi, i wanted to see if I could first port landline to T mobile and then to GV. When I checked out GV, two things were unexpected. Contrary to all postings I read, my GV number does not show up on the left side menu. I can unlink from my cell #, but not delete my GV number (whatever it may be). I can then add a new GV number, but do not get the option to port one in, leading me to believe that GV is broken, and no real support from GV - only forums with rather dated postings. The T mobile card I purchased is a refill card. Did I get the wrong one? It has a strip on back that has to be rubbed off, after which I cannot return it for refund.
rwafford1 (1 месяц назад)
I'm not sure what the Google Voice number issue is, but you need to purchase a SIM card for a cell phone. Not a refill card for service.

The Obihai box is basically the same idea as Ooma. We pay $12 per year for 911 service to use with the free Google Voice. In our area, the taxes we'd have to pay for Ooma is about $5 per month.

Mike Wilson (2 месяца назад)
I don't understand why google voice won't port my number. It has not been an actual landline for years. I originally ported my landline # to the wireless straighttalk home phone solution years ago. Then about 3 years ago I switched from straighttalk to verizon for the home phone and my cell phones. It uses the $20 month Verizon Wireless Home Phone. So it should already be with a wireless carrier, but google voice says: "Ooops! This number appears to be from an area we don't currently support." when I try porting it.
rwafford1 (1 месяц назад)
It might just be a Verizon issue. Try porting it to an AT&T or T-Mobile first. Then to Google Voice.

Matt Merritt (2 месяца назад)
Cell phones have lag, land lines don't. Do not confuse - as he did - land line service with a cable or internet phone service coming off of your modem. Any phone service going through a modem or router uses VOIP and guess what, voip has lag, land line copper based systems don't. Sure the phone is stuck where it is - in your home - but like he said - most people who are concerned with this have cell phones. This device, nor google voice, support all types of fax or secure fax and most "free" fax systems are NOT free. My point is, know what you're getting into when someone says - "all you have to do is...". Exchanging one tech for another always includes a learning curve and these device makers - like AT&T - want your money and do not really care if you save money or not. They want your money - everyone does. In closing this video is to perfect. This solution is to perfect as it is delivered in this video. Beware the grinning used car salesman with nothing invested and nothing to lose but your money and time.
