The following is a Plus Edition article, written by and copyright by Dick Eastman.
On January 17, 2014, I published a Plus Edition article at http://eogn.com/wp/?p=28823 entitled, (+) A Better and Smarter Internet Phone. On January 28, 2014, I published (+) Follow-Up: A Better and Smarter Internet Phone at http://eogn.com/wp/?p=28985. In those articles, I described my experiences with a free service that includes “unlimited” phone calls, voicemail, caller-ID, and call-waiting. I paid $127.70 for the hardware. All calls after that were free of charge. (Well, very close to free. The owner does need to pay taxes and fees, which in my area come to $3.74 per month.)
Now the same hardware is available for $89, including shipping. To be sure, the low price is for a refurbished unit, not a new one. I have always had great luck with refurbished hardware. However, if you wish to have greater levels of warranty, a 12-month full replacement warranty is available for an extra $9.99 and a 24-month warranty is available for $17.99. Note: these are full REPLACEMENT warranties, not an offer to fix your old device. If anything goes wrong with the device, it is simply replaced with no questions asked.
