Thanks FUEGO! I remember now. That was it. It was like $5 to have long distance but you had to pay $2-$3 to NOT have long distance. Enough is enough!!

We're served by Verizon here and I finally got around to switching away from them. I was paying $5.50 a month just to be a customer, plus 7-10 cents a minute. I just switched to another long distance company with no monthly fee and 2.7 cents per minute out-of-state in the contiguous 48.

Oh, and that $3.85 a minute Verizon charged would be 27.5 cents per minute under this plan to the 246 area code. I think they get you with inertia by being the "default" long distance provider since they have a monopoly on the local service.

"Hey, for every ten dollars, that's another hour that I have to be in the work place. That's an hour of my life. And my life is a very finite thing. I have only 'x' number of hours left before I'm dead. So how do I want to use these hours of my life? Do I want to use them just spending it on more crap and more stuff, or do I want to start getting a handle on it and using my life more intelligently?" -- Joe Dominguez (1938 - 1997)
