Further, many individuals are looking to residential VoIP options like Pin2Talk as a landline alternative. Even with the rise of mobile phone use, millions of Americans still want to keep a home VoIP phone for several reasons. Here are a few common ones; poor cell phone coverage in the home, mobile phones put out radio wave signals that some people wish to avoid and certain providers do not offer unlimited calling so a home phone is useful for big talkers.
Home phone services utilizing VoIP use Voice over Internet Protocol which connect callers using the Internet rather than a traditional landline service. By using Voice Over Internet Protocol technology, companies like Pin2Talk provide multiple home phone options: you can place calls not only from standard VoIP phones but also supported iOS and Android devices through our Pin2Talk twinning app and a Wi-Fi connection. What does this mean for customers? More flexibility and mobility with your home phone service. With the Pin2Talk home phone service you still get all of the features you love like voicemails, caller-ID, call waiting, call blocking at a lower price and with easy DIY installation.
Despite widespread mobile use, many homeowners opt to keep their landline phone due to safety reasons. Given the reported problems with traditional cell phone service providers and their inconsistencies with 911 dispatchers, it's understandable. Let's walk through what happens when you dial 911 from a landline vs. a cell phone.
When you dial 911 from a traditional landline phone, the dispatchers automatically see the exact location of the address, so help is sent immediately to your home address.
When you dial 911 from a cell phone, GPS-enabled technology is implemented first to grab your location. It can take a few minutes for the dispatcher to get the correct longitude and latitude, which can delay the emergency response. With older cell phones that are not equipped with GPS technology, your exact location may not ever be pinpointed. This means that your exact location must be given to the 911 dispatcher verbally - which is not always possible in an emergency.
Pin2Talk’s VoIP phone service offers the 911 functionality you'd expect from a landline phone. However, it's important to note that you must provide us with a valid address at time of purchase when you set up your device, and update your address with the device if you move into a new home. With Pin2Talk 911 service, emergency calls are routed to your local dispatcher instead of a national call center, and we automatically relay your street address information to emergency services.
There is no doubt smartphones have changed personal and business communications. However, there are two important reasons why millions of individuals are still opting to keep their home phone service with VoIP options like Pin2Talk. 1. Accessibility: Most homes already come equipped with a broadband internet connection, making it easy to port a number or make a VoIP call. Similarly, wi-fi has become much more of a commodity, allowing VoIP calls to be made from anywhere there is a wi-fi connection.
Although unlimited calling is included with Pin2Talk, users are required to pay monthly taxes and fees. Why? Telecommunication is a highly regulated industry and subject to many laws, regulations and taxes at the city, county, state, province, and federal levels. As a result, Pin2Talk charges applicable taxes and fees so that we as a company comply with laws and regulations mandated by the government.
No - There are several options when it comes to Pin2Talk residential phone numbers. When you register your Pin2Talk Service online, you have the option to pick any new phone number in almost any U.S. area code (except Alaska). If you prefer to keep your current phone number, do not disconnect to your current phone service.
The Pin2Talk system is dependent on power to function, so if there is no power you won’t have a phone signal and won’t be able to place or receive calls.
Note: Any cell phone with a charge and a signal can be used to make 911 calls, regardless of whether that cell phone is activated with a cell phone plan. If you are concerned about reaching emergency response personnel during power or Internet outages, you may wish to keep a deactivated cell phone charged within your home.
Pin2Talk cannot provide phone service or 911 service without both power and a working broadband Internet connection.
