We never use our house phone line, but we keep it because there’s a call box to our building and when people want to be let in, the call box calls us and we hit ’9′ to let visitors in. The call box will work with a VOIP service, but we don’t want to pay a monthly fee more than a few bucks. So, we want to replace our service with VOIP, but it has to be reliable (and easy to set up) enough to ensure we’ll always know when someone is at our gate. Thanks!
