I’ve wanted to ditch my analog phone for years now, but keep holding on to it due to the fact that I have a T1 line in my home and it’s needed for support reasons. If I didn’t need that line, I’d definitely consider the TK6000 from netTALK. Unlike some VOIP (Voice over IP) products such as the Magic Jack, the netTALK is a one time only purchase of about $100, with no monthly fees. A computer isn’t needed, just plug the module into your broadband router and into a regular landline phone and you’re ready for free local and long distance calls within the US and Canada.
