Who would you call if you were traveling and ran into trouble while you were traveling? I would have to say mine would be Stephanie. You can tell the world who your choice is by visiting Home Phone Without Boundaries and creating your own #FirstPersonIdCall meme.
I have been a Time Warner Cable customer for years, with their cable, phone and internet bundle. I love the convenience of having one bill to pay, and I get a discount because of the bundle. Although we don’t get a lot of incoming calls on our landline, we do use it quite often for outgoing calls. We use it because we have an international calling plan through Time Warner Cable, and because we can call free around the country. We also use it to prevent using up all of our shared minutes on our cell phone plan; with the whole family sharing minutes we really want to stay on top of our calls and not go over – that gets very expensive.
Now Time Warner has made it possible to use your home phone number from anywhere – using the Phone 2 Go app. Simply connect your phone to Wi-Fi or 3G and you are ready to call, text or video chat anywhere to anywhere in the U.S. or to 34 countries around the world. It is truly the best of both worlds; you can combine the convenience and mobility of your cell phone with the calling power of your Time Warner Cable phone account.
I don’t call internationally very frequently, but we do call often enough to make it worth having a plan. I have cousins and an old school-friend who live in other countries, so I do like to catch up every so often. Now I can call them from my cell phone using my home calling plan. The other advantage of the Phone 2 Go app is that people who are traveling internationally can connect to Wi-Fi wherever they are and call home for free. I also really like Phone 2 Go because I can make phone calls from anywhere, but they do not use up my cell phone minutes; I am technically calling from my home phone.
Phone 2 Go offers many other conveniences as well. Users can have their phone calls to their landlines forwarded to their cell phones. This is not only convenient, it is a safety feature as well; callers will not know if you are home or not when you are on vacation, for instance. You can also text through Phone 2 Go, and you can video chat to share your adventures with friends and family.
The app is very easy to set up and use, and you can always go back and change your settings. The app allows people to text to your landline number, so that you don’t have to give your cell phone number out to everyone. You also have options to block telemarketers and to get voice-to-text services.
If you are a Time Warner Cable customer you should take advantage of this free app and extend your home phone services to make them mobile. If you aren’t a Time Warner Cable customer, here is another reason that you should switch!
