How do you get 'free cell phone service'?
I use what's called a 'softphone' app on a cell phone, CSipSimple in my case. You set the softphone up with your VOIP services info, and as mentioned, as long as you get a WiFi signal, you have "a free cell phone". (Note the quotes as it is not a "cell" service per'se, but it is mobile.)
With Shaw Go WiFi as prevalent as it is in Victoria I'm never too far from a signal. (And here I use to rail against paying for a service I had no need for...)
I'm not really "a phone guy". It's just a handy addition to my Voip service if needed. Seeing payphones have gone the way of the Dodo.
Switching to Voip, has saved me a TON of money so far, ok, comparatively speaking
. <$6 since Nov 11th, where for the same time period I'd have spent $60 through Shaw for 'Personal Home Phone'. 90% savings, is a ton
of money to a poor guy like me. (Fixed disability income....as everything around us keeps going up and up and up, my income remains the same.)
