If you’re on the road a lot, you’ll know that cell phone minutes are expensive. And if you have ever made phone calls from a motel, you understand the shock you can have at check out time. Vonage has a neat little USB device that can turn any laptop computer with an internet connection into a mobile communication center. And this device is actually pretty easy to install, easy to use, and highly functional.
The V-Phone comes complete with V-Phone software, a detachable stereo microphone earpiece, 250MB of unused storage space, and a new Vonage number. The Vonage package has Caller ID, Caller Forwarding, and Call Waiting with no additional cost. And, if you want, you can also add a second line, add a dedicated fax line, or add a toll free number. As you would expect, Vonage offers great online call reporting. The V-Phone costs around $50 USD and the business line will run you around the same per month for premium service. This business plan offers you unlimited local and long distance calls anywhere in the US, Canada, Puerto Rico and select European countries. Pretty neat.
