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.

One of my secrets to success is that I change my negative thoughts by using voice affirmations. What I do is record my affirmations on my smart phone or hand held recorder. I plug in my ear phones and listen to them when I start to notice my inner thoughts are negative. I make these recordings after I have had some sort of epiphany about myself and am alone to think it out and record. These affirmations change my thoughts to what I want them to be!
“The words we say, internally and externally, have tremendous power, yet they’re often full of doubt and fear.Converting your goals into positive statements of affirmations is another way to focus intensely.” The Spark, p. 24
Yeah, I do not want to get motivated in the morning...So I have started using my cell phone as an alarm clock. My phone allows for voice recordings...I record myself saying "It is a new day get up, get motivated. This is your time to take control of yourself" For me, this works!
