Do I need cell service? SKYPE, Facetime, ipad, Communication Convergence
Posted on 2012-04-10
SKYPE can even port the existing cellular phone number, as well as, assign another 800 # using my business name.
At one time I thought that this would not be feasible as I was under the impression that one had to be a SKYPE member in order to use phone services. SKYPE to SKYPE is free, one can use the (term?) SMS/textging capability, and the phone fees outside of SKYPE are very reasonable. I guess one would have to keep a watchful eye as to use, but monitoring would not be too difficult since services are pre-paid per users denomination.
Do I REALLY need to have cellular services that currently cost me about 100/month?
I was going to switch ATT to Verizon, but while my service was so poor through ATT, I began using my ipad along with SKYPE. It works GREAT!! If I port my cell number to SKYPE I will not lose my business marketing contact numbers as currently posted.
Is there something that I have not considered? Are there even better methods to consider?
