    Has anyone used this, is for what are your thoughts on it? I'm meeting with the guy tomorrow to talk about it more but want to hear from some people who have used it. The downside i see is the bill could get real out of hand real quick in the spring when you get all the " how much you charge to cut grass" call, the ones that just want a price over the phone but won't give any info. I probably get at least 100 of those every year.

    Sounds like a great deal. For AT&T that is.

    Yes and got burned. Had to pay for all the job seekers, out of area calls, and telemarketers, even though they told me just call to have those calls removed. Well I did and my response from AT&T was along the lines that I was on the phone to long with them. The other thing was you get charged by how long you spend on phone, something like anything over 12 seconds, well they count the ring duration into the call time.
