    I am looking to add one of these to my home in a few weeks and was curious to see what some of the different rates throughout the country were.

    don't get it setup as a business line (sure you get listed in the white pages free under your name and number), but just get a residential line and use it for your business.

    Here for a business line it costs you 30 cents per call received and sent, as well as the monthly service charge....not worth it.

    WOW! My business line is $30/month with local/long distance billed at 1.8 cents/min. Incoming calls are free. My total monthly bill runs around $35.
