    home phone

    I saw a device on straight talk that would serve as a home phone, to be released on Sept 21 2012. Does any one have more information?

    Wow, looks like a good device! And it runs on the Verizon network! If I ever have any trouble with my Magicjack Plus, I'm switching my home phone to this.

    interestingly enough, you only save $4 a month over the same service/device offered by Verizon.

    Instead, I have an OBiTALK and use GV for my home phone.

    Straight Talk Home Phone

    Anyone tried out the new home phone? How is your experience and have you had any problems. If you did/have problems list them and tell how they were fixed or not. Recommend or not?
    I will have questions for you.
    Don't be afraid to ask me questions.

    I just got one a few days ago and so far so good.
    Verizon coverage where I use the device isn't that great but still works and no issues.

    i activated no issues. so i setup it up with google voice. the forwarding would not work when i entered it in gv control panel. but entering *72 from the handset it worked fine. i had it set as a landline and that lasted about 10 seconds and i changed it to mobile so the control would be there. now if i could get gv number to show on its caller id. on monday i am going to call st and ask. calling out should be rare. gv really catches a crap load of calls most would find annoying. spam folder was full. no wonder i love it. i never knew they called.

    We have had one for a few weeks and it is working just fine. At first, the service end date would not show on our account, but they finally got that fixed. We ported a landline number and that took six days, but other than those two issues, it is good. The number taking so long to port wasn't ST's fault, it was just that landline numbers take longer.

    when i cut my landline off several years ago i started using gv so i have 1 number. i did not get a single political call well i did but i never knew it. i hated the fact you were at the mercy of everybody. not so with gv. i got serious control. i posted this because others just getting started this home phone system with gv is nearly perfect. and oh its cheap too.

    Thanks for reporting back -- I'm about to try what you've done, so I'm interested in your experience. Could you expand a bit more on what you mean by "the forwarding would not work when i entered it in gv control panel"? Do you mean that incoming calls to the GV number would not forward to the ST home phone device when set as a landline number? I'm not familiar with the use of *72 -- what is that supposed to do?

    Edit: Never mind about the *72 question -- I searched and found the answer.

    accessing the settings to enter your phone number in gv and after confirming to google by entering your code there will be a hyperlink to activate google voicemail on this phone. thats the part that seemed not to work. the *72 comes in at this point and fixes it.
