4.0 out of 5 stars So far so good!, May 21, 2010
This review is from: Phone Power Broadband Telephone Service Combo Pack (Electronics)
It took a while to receive it since I chose free shipping. Once I got it, I read the simple pictorial diagrams and I knew what I had to do. I connected the PhonePower adapter AFTER the router in sequence. After waiting for 5 minutes, I was able to hear a dial tone.

The only thing was that I was not able to dial out and would only hear a busy tone when I dialed a number. I wondered and thought if I should contact the technical support, but decided to log into my online account first to see if it was active. Then I noticed that I have to wait over night until my account would get activated. I waited and I tried it the first thing in the morning. To my surprise, it was active!

I could dial out, but then couldn't receive phone calls. I guess that's because I chose to transfer my existing number which would take about a week to do. PhonePower doesn't provide a temporary number to use, but it's okay for me as I wouldn't give it out to anyone anyway. I am sure everything will be fine after a week, but so far so good!

By the way, I went with the 2 years promotional plan. That's the best deal I could find for the best reviews I searched online for hours over several days. I even checked BBB site and was surprised PhonePower had a better rating than Vonage. That rating made my decision less risky and easier to go with PhonePower.

Update: I have been using Phone Power service for almost a month and I have no issues. I love their international rates; almost same or better than calling cards. Plus I get 60 minutes free of international calls each month. That is a big selling point when you really don't need unlimited international minutes as with Vonage and other monthly plans.
