Basic Talk Home Phone Service
Are you tired of overspending for your home phone service? I have been tired of our huge bill for some time now, but we had no alternative! You have to have a phone, and in my rural area we do not have cell service, so that wasn’t an option even. I had heard of Basic Talk but really didn’t know enough about it, till they offered me a review. When I heard Basic Talk is only $9.99 a month for home service, I knew I had to check it out!
BasicTalk works off your existing high speed internet, and its completely legal! With BasicTalk you can make unlimited calls anywhere in the U.S. for a service fee of $9.99 a month (+ taxes & gov’t fees same as any phone service), this is the REGULAR low price! Not a special! No contract, and they offer you to keep your existing phone number!
1. Connect your BasicTalk Box™ to an
open port on your Wi-Fi router.
2. Plug any home phone into the
Basic Talk Box.
3. Pick up your phone and start dialing.

Your BasicTalk is now ready to use, and your computer does not have to be left online. BasicTalk is running off your router for your internet, not your computer! Activate your account at BasicTalk.com, It was super easy to do and in minutes I was able to make a call to my daughter out of state with no issues or problems! Same as making any phone call, only it didn’t cost a fortune for us to talk. I also had her call me back, to see how it worked in coming, no issues!
You will be assigned a phone number or you can keep your existing landline phone number. This I did not do for our account so I really don’t know much about the procedure. More information on that can be answered at BasicTalk.com.
Our current phone bill costs us $57.00 a month and that is before any out of state long distance! Crazy right!! I thought so too, but in order to do in state long distance I had to keep the plan I had, every where we call in the state is long distance! I am pretty sure we are not the only ones with this same huge bill! Without any LONG DISTANCE!!
All of our family is out of the state, so they have made the calls to us for years. The few times we call, the whole conversation is spent worrying how much money it’s costing us! No more worry, for $9.99 a month BasicTalk is unlimited calls anywhere in U.S. that works for me! I think even if and when, we have cell service come to the area, I will always want a BasicTalk landline as well and at $9.99 a month, its a great way to do it. My oldest daughter has a cell phone however, if she leaves the house it goes with her. The problem, without someone else at home also having a cell phone for her to call back to, she has no way to reach anyone at the house. No landline, and its been an issue for her, she will be looking into Basic Talk also.
I will be keeping my landline service with my regular provider, for now, why?? Well, we do live in the boonies, where our internet is not always the most reliable, we do lose service! But, I can now drop my regular bill to basic service, with Basic Talk still make all my in state long distance calls, and still save more $360.00 a year!! Plus I will have 2 phones available, and I can make as many out of state calls as I want with no worry about the bill! I can now call family anywhere and talk as long as I want.
If I had reliable internet service that other phone service would be totally out of here! I have complained soooo long about that ridiculous bill. To some it may not seem like a big bill, but when you are allowed NO long distance calling and family is all out of state its crazy! Anywhere that I can save money on household expenses monthly, just means more funds for things we really want or need! Without sacrificing, and I am gaining more than I had! Thats a win!
