Land line, Majic Jack, any other ideas?
I got an ATT cel just before coming to STX & now that my contract is up I need to make a change. Oddly, when I looked at this condo I had 3 bars & now that I have moved in only 1 or 2, enough to text but calls run from awful to impossible. Friends with Sprint who also live in Vista Mar say their service is OK, but only in some areas. So far I have not found 1 of those areas, so I started thinking land line & got sidetracked by talk about MaJicK Jack & other voip options. I am no tech head, thus pretty clueless about how this works. Do I need top of the line internet or will choice do? Do I need a smarter phone than I have. In other words "DOH"
I know our Radio Shack is dying, so first I will check if they are dead yet, then see what att has to offer. I was surprised to find that a friend I talk with all the time in Idaho is on voip, but I'm guessing I might need to upgrade to the priciest internet on VI for it to work here, If anyone is using it successfully here I'd love the details.
I checked amazon & was a bit creeped out by all the fine print on some of the signal boosters. If I can get enough signal to spend 20 min talking to ATT I will try to see if the 1 I have in mind gets their approval. Meanwhile more info from anyone who has had success would be helpful.
