Telephone Tools

This post is devoted entirely to reducing telephone costs.

Magic Jack
This tool is a real cost reducer.It allows you to plug the magicJack into your PC using a USB port and then you can plug your telephone wire into the Magic Jack and make unlimited calls for free to anywhere to the USA or Canada.So you could be in the USA or anywhere else in the WORLD and log on to the Internet using Wireless network or any other Internet connection and then start making telephone calls to land lines or cell phones in the USA or Canada.You could also run the wire out from your magicJack to the line into your home or office and all the phones would be able to make calls immediately.The magicJack costs around $40 USD for the unit and then $20 USD each year thereafter. You can find more information at MagicJack.com

Skype
By now, everyone should be familiar with Skype available from http://www.skype.com/
I have tested it and it shows video from a web cam much faster than Yahoo Messenger and, presumably, other IM sites. No stuttering of the video frames and great FREE talking over the Internet with a microphone, either built-in or a plug-in.

netTalk TK6000
This tool is an even better cost reducer.This device does not require a PC. You simply plug this into the back or your cable modem or or other Internet router and them plug your phone line into the TK6000 and immediately make phone calls to anywhere in the USA or Canada for free. You can also receive calls from anywhere in the US or Canada since netTalk will give you a phone number to use so you can be called.You could also run the wire out from your TK6000 to the line into your home or office and all the phones would be able to make calls immediately.The TK6000 costs a one-time $100 USD for then all calls are free for life. And there is no need to have a PC running to use it. You can find more information at netTalk.com

Phone Number Parking
There are a number of Internet services where you can "Park" you phone number so you do not lose it or so you can forward calls to the number to another phone number such as you cell phone.These services do NOT charge the high monthly fees that ATT or other phone line services charge.Among these services are: NumberGarage.com and ParkMyPhone.com
