This is interesting and amusing to me. I just don't make phone calls. Lots of emails, but no phone calls. I know, I know some of you live on your phones but I don't and that is a different discussion. But as it turned out last month I made 2 calls for a total of $0.18 in charges. Here is what those two calls cost me:
1) Monthly Charge for Dial Tone $8.61
2) Local Calls (this is the 18 cents) $0.18
3) Touch-tone (Wow something free) $0.00
Now we are moving into Surcharges and Taxes on 18 cents worth of calls.
4) FCC Line Charge $6.38
5) Local Number Portability $0.21
6) Federal Tax $0.51
7) NY State/Local Sales Tax $1.46
8) 911 Surcharge $1.00
9) Federal USF Surcharge $0.59
10) Surchare(s) (this is my favorite, I suppose these are the surcvharges on the surcharges
So for $0.18 worth of calls it cost me $19.86
Anyway, I found it amusing.

That's nothing. I don't use my phone at all and they charge me almost $50 PLUS, I keep getting phone calls for the previous owner of the number.
Hmmm... Why do I have a phone again?Scott
If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, then baffle them with bulls#!t
Don't tell me that you'll do it... SHOW ME.
Just because everyone else is drinking it is no reason for me to drink the KOOL-AID.

Switch to Vonage
I get Unlimited local and long distance for 24.99 a month comes to 27 after tax.
Just need a broadband connection and if you know a Vonage customer you can get 2 months free if you are reffered to vonage by them.
They also have a 15 dollar plan.
