It isn't often that I am so pleased or displeased with a service that I will write out it. But as it turns out, Vonage is that rare exception. And this isn't good news for Vonage.However, this is the "Living Below Your Means" forum and I won't go into details on what I love and hated. (Though, I did love the features - well, the ones that worked at all - but I really really hated the quality)So, as you can guess, I moved my 2 lines to Vonage to save $$$. I was paying SBC $115/month for the 2 lines, voice mail, unlimited US and Canada calling and a few other minor features. Vonage could give me all that - and more - for $55/month. Deal (and $118 in "line activation" charges that includes some hardware) - I'm there.After dealing with quality issues, major Tivo issues (that were going to require me to get a $10/month SBC line) and a desire to use my cable modem to actually move data (not just voice), I got a call from SBC. "We want you back"It went something like this:"We want you back""OK, I'm listening - but understand that I have Vonage now and I'm happy (cough cough) with it""Let's see what we can do".....So, after a few minutes of figuring it out, I now have 2 lines, voice mail, unlimited calling and US and Canada for $67/month (that includes a one year promotion of $10) And there was no re-installation charge. Oh, and I can move data while carrying on a phone conversation.So, I'm paying about the same as I would have had to (including the new $10/month line I would have needed) ... but, most importantly...I'm paying $50/month LESS than I was when this all started.Gareth
