We are currently using Uverse for our home phone (I'd say landline but I don't think it's really a landline anymore since it runs over the internet). But it's currently costing us about $35 a month for unlimited incoming and 200 minutes of outgoing calls. Most months my outgoing is less than 100 (I hate talking on the phone). But I don't want to get rid of the phone completely because my kids need access when they are home alone (they don't have cell phones are we aren't interested in getting them ones either). It's also really nice to have the phone ring in multiple locations in the house so that we can hear it no matter what room we are in.
So are there some cheaper options available? Will I will be able to use my same phone system (the base plugs into the jacks but it broadcasts to multiple handsets)?
Any recommendations appreciated.
