netTalk DUO Wifi Phone Review & Giveaway



I live in a small town, and so that means that phone service is limited. We only have 2 choices of phone companies and they both have their downfalls. We have North Central, which requires a $250 deposit to get high speed internet- and Windstream, who lies about how much their service will be every month.

I chose Windstream, because I sure didn’t have $250 to fork out for a deposit from North Central. I DO need the internet though, so I had to get something- and Windstream requires NO payment the first month at all- so that’s what I got even though it runs me $80 a month.

When I was told about netTalk, which is WAY less for YEARS worth of service- I immediately wanted to try it! netTALK is a new innovative way to save money. It is basically a home phone that connects to your computer via WI-FI.

The instructions to set this up ARE very easy. It’s like setting up an email account. You give your name and address, and then It pinpoints the closest town that it has a number for.

This is ranging about $3 a month! AND you can call ANYWHERE in the United States and Canada for free. It has tons and tons of add-ons that I’ve never seen any home phone service offer EVER!

Here are the amazing features:

  • NEW Call Blocking (block annoying calls)
  • NEW Call ID Blocking (protect your privacy)
  • One year of service included
  • 30 Day Money Back Guarantee
  • Wi-Fi enabled
  • Choose a phone number or keep your own
  • Free local and long distance calling to the U.S. and Canada
  • Live technical support, 7 days a week
  • Flat-rate, ultra low-cost international call plans
  • Free DUO-to-DUO-calls anywhere in the world
  • Plugs directly into your router or computer
  • Landline goes anywhere there is Internet
  • 411 directory assistance
  • Call waiting / caller ID / call forwarding
  • 3-way calling / conference calling
  • Visual voicemail
  • Enhanced 911
  • Fax-friendly
  • Videophone application
  • …and more!

When you purchase this it’s 64.95, but that’s the price for the equipment AND 1 year of service. Someone who ISN’T computer friendly could have this set up in no-time! I had it set up in about 5-10 minutes.

The only issue is I need a better home phone! That has nothing to do with netTalk though.! I am using a cord phone for right now because my Vtech cordless phone ended up breaking (sad face).. So- I can’t wait to get another one and try out all these amazing features. I’ve tried most of them but I haven’t had a chance to use the Videophone app or 3 way calling yet. =)

This is going to be amazing for my business. It has conference calling built in. Now there isn’t anyone that I can’t talk to, or get ahold of. Now I won’t have to rely solely on email to talk to customers and clients.

This is an amazingly small little invention that will not only make your life easier, but your pockets bigger. Who could resist paying $64.95 for equipment AND a year of service. The second year will be cheaper than that because you already have the box, so you just pay the renew fee.!
