When a tool/device no longer works...check on line or in product info for contact number or e-mail....often even if you think it's out of warranty and just time to junk it...you can be surprised....we have had companies send us parts for shipping only or sometimes free...worth a call!

My home phone service has been free for over two years. I use Google Voice and a simple device called an ATA (available from Linksys or many other companies). Setup is a bit involved but any college student today can help if you're not up to the task. Once you have your Google number it will ring all the phones in your home or any mix of land and cellular phones based on the caller, and you'll have call forwarding, call screening, voice mail, and many other options all for free.
Your voice mails will be transcribed and emailed to you automatically as well if you wish.
I looked at some deals other companies were offering and called my cable/tv/internet provider and told them to see if they could match the deal or I planned to move to other company, they matched the deal and gave me unlimited long distance and a free premium chanel saving over 300 a year. It never hurts to ask. Just be polite and if they say no ask to speak to a superviser, stay polite.
