I have embarked on the final herculean battle in the ongoing war with my "phone" provider. I'll show them! (ya, right... like that'll get me anywhere :)
Voice has quite simply become the least used app on this communications thingy I carry around in my pocket. Calling this thing a "phone" has become completely anachronistic...
Why I pay for the privilege of Roger's dreadful reception and sound quality, has become well, beyond me; Who do I ever talk to over the "phone", my wife and my son mostly... Easily, 90% of my business VOICE communication is pre-arranged and takes place over Skype, Viper or Google "Phone".
So... I'm going to take this opportunity to simplify... SIMPLIFY. The battle has been over the cost and combination of services I thought I needed, don't use but pay for. Seeing how my provider doesn't wan't to sell me X without Y to carry the Z... I think I'll reduce them to X, or less... all I really need from them is access to their tower for those rare moments I'm away from my own or some kind souls WiFi connection.
Going to use these next few days to beef up my VOIP accounts... Organize a voice service for myself with a cost in relation to how seldom I use it. The REAL concern and what I will pay most attention to is ensuring this system of mine is transparant to those who still maintain that "phone" is important. Any help from brave pioneers who have blazed this trail before me, mucho appreciado!
