A couple of months ago I wrote about my experiments with voice over IP (VoIP). Today, I called Bell and had them strip all the features off my phone line, except for Caller*ID and add a busy transfer feature. I also dropped the long distance package I had since it’s been redundant since the experiment started. Now, if someone calls my Bell number and it’s busy, it will roll over to my Unlimitel DID.
Removing all these features is going to save me about $21/month. I think even the customer service rep at Bell was impressed.
