I'm not very tech savvy, but the customer service reps patiently explained to me what I needed to know and I'm happy I made the switch from my old company. I started month to month on the $19.95 rate to see if I liked it, which was still cheaper than what I was paying before, but then switched to their 2 year contract plan for $14.95 once I was very pleased with the service and features. I don't use fax that often, but sometimes I do need to receive one and was very pleased that someone could send it to my Phone Power voicemail and have a copy sent to my email as well. Clear call quality is a plus too.

I've been VoIPing for the past 3 years.  I started with Vonage.  Great program but still costly.  I signed up for Phone Power about 8 months ago.  Initially I had some issues getting started but the staff there was really helpful and knowledgeable.  I was also happy to realize that they all spoke english.  Nothing was lost in translation.  What a pleasent surprise.  The price of course is excellent.  I signed up for the 1 year plan and have been satisfied ever since.  Tons of features and I dont' have to pay extra.  The hardward they send out (grandstream) is small, compact, and has worked great.  I would love to get the travel adapter they have (their own version of the Magic Jack...).  It was a good move to Phone Power.  Just wanted to spread the word... Good company.

Been trying to save money the right way.  I need a landline for work... couldn't just use the cell anymore.  This looked like the right choice.  I was right.  the price is great.  I signed up for the month to month to start.  sound quality was good(i was a little worried).  No problems.  Signed up for the 2 year deal.  love the features.  voice mail to email is awesome.  tech support was helpful and intelligent (pleasent surprise), and cheap international calling is a plus.  I love the service... and so does my wallet!  :)

Picked it up at Best Buy over the holidays... sound quality is better than I expected.  No echo or anything like that.  This is my 2nd voip product.  I had vonage... too expensive.  The price is right.  They were cool on the phone but it still took about 20 minutes to get everything ready.  No problems so far.  I signed up for the 1 yr plan... gonna wait a couple more weeks to see if i want to upgrade to the 2 year.  I like the features, and the travel adapter works great on my laptop.  I'm very happy so far. 

Great price! Features are cool. Pretty easy to set up. Quality sound.

Ported phone number from Vonage. Purchased device from Best Buy. The package came with Home adapter and USB portable adapter. Took about 10 days to port phone number from Vonage. Then called Vonage and cancelled service. Sound quality seem goods. Time will tell.
Dealing with customer service has ben great.
Sound quality is fine. No complaints.
Price is very good. One of the lowest. Did the yearly plan. Second year you must pay taxes, after the first year.
Reliablilty. Too soon to tell.
Nice set of features. Did like the voice mail to e-mail that vonage offered. Thats the only reason it didn't get 5/5.
 
I'll update in the future.

The Skinny

Phone Power offers residential and international plans on top of VoIP hardware installation guides in order to meet all of your calling needs. Their home phone service is the same plan with three different pricing tiers, and offers you nearly unlimited calling throughout the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico. You can even keep your current phone number with Phone Power's residential calling plan! Phone Power also has three International plans available, and depending on how many countries you call determines what plan is right for you.

If you aren't satisfied with their service, Phone Power offers its customers a 30 Day money back guarantee.

the rub

The Rub

For home phone service, Phone Power provides consumers with the USA/Canada Unlimited Calling plan. If you are willing to sign a long-term contract, Phone Power can guarantee lower monthly rates. Then again, their monthly package isn’t exorbitant, either, so you can't go wrong with affordable phone service whether or not you want to sign a contract with Phone Power.

Each unlimited plan, regardless of the term (1 year prepay, 1 year contract, or monthly) will get you virtually unlimited calling. You can make and receive inbound calls without a limit, and are granted 60 minutes a month of international calling. Plus, with their USA/Canada Unlimited Calling plan, Phone Power provides a mobile phone app, free activation, and a free cloned second line.

Bottom Line

If you know that you need a dependable VoIP phone service that will help you save money, opt for the 1-year prepay to save the most money. However, be sure to consult Phone Power's website As a trustworthy and reputable residential VoIP provider for ten years, they can provide you the phone service and customer support that you require to stay connected. Plus, their support team is 100% US-based, and their website offers e-guides as well as tech support chat.

While the monthly rate is entirely affordable and much less than a traditional phone provider, taxes, fees, shipping, and handling still apply to your order.

Our Two Cents

Phone Power makes it easy to have an affordable residential VoIP phone system. They offer three differnet payment options in their USA/Canada plans: a Monthly Average (as a 1-year prepay), a 12-Month Term, and a No Contract option. This makes it easy for users to choose a term that they are most comfortable with. Even still, Phone Power offers a 30-Day money back guarantee to its customers. These calling plans also offer customers the option to keep their current number for free, when other providers do so for a charge.

Phone Power's residential VoIP plans also have a mobile phone app, faxing capabilities, and free activation on top of many calling features. Your calling plan also comes with an allotted number of internationl minutes per month for calling to select countries. One thing unique to Phone Power is that they give you a free second cloned line with your service, which allows you to make or receive calls using the same phone number.
