Re: cheap provider for low usage & land line port
said by swarner:Also nice. But a per-call fee for inbound caller id?!? That's a surprise and I couldn't find it on the website.
So ... fund an account with about $40 ... this will cover the port and one year of service as well as the E911 fee of $.80 per month and Caller ID cost of $.09 per incoming call (if you choose to use it).
said by tee el cee:I believe that swarner had a typo -- it's $0.009 per call, and that's for caller ID name. You get the calling number at no charge.

Also, if you don't need SIP access, I believe that you don't need to pay the 911 charge. (You can set up the voicemail greeting by upload or by calling in from another phone.)
