My phone is ringing non-stop!

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
You ever have one of those days?
For the last 2 days it won't stop ringing! It's driving me crazy! I only have a cell phone so I have to watch my minutes. I tell everyone "Let me call you back later when it's free" Low and behold if THEY don't call ME back 30 mins later. I've decided to go ahead and get a home phone. My cable company offers it in a package deal along with my internet for only $25 more a month. It costs me more then that when I go over on my mins with my cell phone so I figured it would be better.....
But for tonight....It's getting turned off.

How come it costs you money when people call you? Doesn't it only cost them? I am on a plan where I pay $49 per month up front, and then I get $230 worth of calls and texts. I never use my home phone anymore, seriously, I can never, ever use $230 worth of calls - and I use my phone a lot! I once rang my brother in another state on my mobile, and talked to him for 45 minutes, and I STILL didn't use up all my credit! It's a really great way to do things....

We used over 7000 minutes on the business cells this month so I think it is safe to say that the phone never stops ringing... it sounds like a good idea to get a home phone, even if you only use it for incoming calls... you can write it off as part of the business anyway can't you?

In North America it costs to make and receive calls.

My sister rings me on her mobile in Aus and doesn't use all her minutes up either

I am not sure what plan you have or if you are locked into a contract but I IMed the office down there and they use nextel and have a plan with free incoming calls, it is $60 for 500 mins outgoing and free incoming, evenings and weekends there are smaller/bigger plans if those minutes don't suit you

lol...I would LOVE to, but since i'm not at my house tonight (my mom and I live in a very very bad neighborhood) ...I always leave the phone on just in case....I wouldn't want her to not be able to get ahold of me if something were to happen. But it sure is annoying when she calls every 5 minutes just to tell me the same thing she did the previous 5 minutes! Uhhhh! She needs a boyfriend!:

Ouch! That's a bit of a rort - why have one?? I mean, obviously I know why you would have one, but that seems a little unfair...

Yep, you can get some really good plans here. When my brother and I were with the same network it was free for either of us to call each other. That was cool...

Yeap..
Now if Reggie would just disappear for a few I'd be ok
He just took a HUGE mouthfull of V8 Splash Hot and Spicy and it set him on fire! I asked him "Well, did you shake it up?" He says "um. no"

Oh I am about to strangle me some kitties tonight.. Bo will NOT stay out of the Christmas tree! Earlier today when I was re-decorating it for the 3rd time, he climbed in the tree while I was hanging ornaments and was swatting at them as I hung them... The kids thought it was hilarious because he would pop his head out for just long enough to find the ornament, go back in and swat with his little paw... He thinks it's cute...well...I did too.. the first 4 times! After that, he got flat out annoying and was "banned" from the tree.... for... oh... 3 mins

Bo is under the tree right now... He's managed to take the "fool proof" bows off one side of the tree and hide them somewhere in the house

post #27 of 28
and that is why i dont have a home phone,
and only like 5 people have my cell number
post #28 of 28
Heck I have a plan that I can call anywhere anytime and talk as long as I want on the home phone, I have 2 cell phones 300 anytime 5000 night and weekends, high speed dsl, and nationwide anywhere, the tortal bill for all of them is together is about $146.00 a month for everything every month, Plus I have 4500 minutes rollover on my cell phones.. I don't use the cell all that much, I have had this deal for a long time, I think it's pretty cheap for everything
