Years ago when my husband and I first started dating he worked as a long haul trucker for about three years. The days and even the hours he spent away were traumatizing to me. I would have to schedule my days around when I thought he was going call. This was a time before cell phones. Yeah, ages ago, LOL.
Now, in this age of technology we have cell phones, computers, skype and so many other ways to stay in touch with our loved ones. I recently was given the opportunity to try Vonage Box™.
About Vonage Box™
Vonage, a budget friendly VoIP provider, offers the Vonage Box™ service for busy fathers to stay in touch with their families.
- connects existing phone line (must have high-speed internet)
- can support up to two phone lines
- small and portable
- goes where you go (if you move or go on vacation)
The Vonage Box™ allows you to use your computer and your phone line at the same time without interruption. It’s perfect for Dads who have to multi task and still want to read a bedtime story or find out the results of the latest T~ball game. Wherever Dad goes you can keep in touch with him . Sometimes cell phones drop calls or have no coverage in certain areas, as long as you have high speed internet the Vonage Box™ will work. Even if you have a cell phone the Vonage Box™ is an excellent back-up and you get to keep the number your kids and family know and remember.
My family and I are enjoying the Vonage Box™ because we’re able to use a real phone. Remember those? Yeah? Many times when I am on my cell phone I can’t type on the computer and talk on my cell phone. Why? Because when I use my shoulder to hold my cell phone, the caller can’t hear my voice. Sure, I could put my phone on speaker, but where is the privacy? Having a house phone that’s not a cell phone gives us options and freedom that we enjoy very much. There is no echo or static feed back and best of all no dropped calls.
Our regular phone attaches to the Vonage Box™, and the box attaches to our broadband router. The set-up was so easy even I could do it, LOL. I can use my wireless phone while in the yard or on the front porch, it’s separate from my computer so I don’t have to have my laptop on in order to use it. It keeps my phone number so when we go on vacation we can take it with us, see the freedom I was talking about? I have call waiting, voice mail and all of the features my phone provides. It’s really a win- win for our family.
Don’t scramble around looking for a gift for Dad this Father’s Day, check out Vonage Box™ service and give him the gift the entire family will enjoy.
