Video Phone Calling - Slash Your Phone Bill With The Latest Technology

February 20, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 156

What if there was a way that you could make unlimited phone calls anywhere in the world to the people you love and care about, and those calls are Free?

What if there was a way you could not only speak to those people, but see them as well.

Just like Star Trek, video phone calling is here right now and it is surprisingly affordable.

Most people think of banks of computers, expensive technology, a degree in IT, and bucket loads of money, when they think about video calling. Video technology has actually been around for almost 2 decades. Until recently though, this video phone calling and conferencing was very much in the realms of high end corporations and government agencies. This technology is here now, affordable for everyone, and surprisingly simple to use.

There are basically two kinds of video calling: Skype-based and non-Skype based. Both require a high speed internet connection as they work over a VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) platform.

Skype was the forerunner of affordable online video communication using VoIP, and was good up to a point. There are a few pitfalls to be aware of. Mostly the connection is so erratic that it becomes too frustrating to bother with. Of course, computers are required at both ends, and very much open to computer viruses. Calls to other Skype users are free, but times need to be arranged in advance, so you can 'Skype' each other. Unfortunately, you also lose some of the phone features that you are used to, such as call waiting, call forwarding, etc. Skype becomes an 'Addition' to your current communications, rather than a suitable replacement.

Just as everything else has moved to the digital age, so too has Video communication. Selecting the right video phone will allow you to replace your existing fixed line phone and connect with digital quality and clarity, and still keep your existing phone number. A flat monthly fee, generally less than you currently pay for local and long distance calls, will allow you to make unlimited calls across the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. So immediately you have made an enormous saving.

Video phones are easy to use, and require little or no set up. Simply attach the Ethernet cable to your hi-speed Internet, and plug in to a power source. That's it. No computer required. As this is a secure system you are also protected from computer viruses. You can now use your video phone just as you would any other phone - simply pick up the handset and dial. You can make audio calls to any other phone - local, long distance, cell phone, etc. To enable video calling and conferencing, the other parties must also have a video phone. Talk to and see friends and family, anytime, anywhere, completely FREE. You can even plug your video phone into your flat screen television, and see family and friends on the big screen in living color. It's like having them right there in your living room.

All of the features that you're used to are available with today's video phone technology, plus many more: messaging, caller ID, call waiting, call forwarding, hide me, find me, etc. What's more, these features are also free.

What is critical is that you ensure you make the right choice when selecting your new Video Phone handset and service provider. The difference in quality can be considerable. To get the most from your video phone experience and slash your phone bills at the same time, it is critical that you choose a reliable service provider for your new technology.

Skype certainly had its place in the VoIP market. However, with Video Phones great features and great savings, it makes sense to utilize 21st century technology today.
