We have been using the Talk n' save land line since we made aliyah
2.5 years ago. We are extremely happy with it. Thank G-D we have yet to
have any issues with connection. True, It does cost a bit more but you have
the satisfaction of not being tied to the internet. So if its down or
slow or your working.your connection isn't affected.
Your caller id wont tell you the number coming from the
states, it just says "out of area."
