     Unfortuantely it is due to the American companies wanting as much money as they can. Smiley Sad

lol!!  Well, I think too it is because outside of America the caller is paying for both sides of the transaction - therefore, the recipient pays nothing.  And my understanding is that calls to other mobile phones are much more expensive than calls are to landlines; whereas, in America we pay the same price for outbound calls regardless of what type of phone we are calling.
 
I imagine the foreign companies want as much money as they can get too - it's just a different pricing schematic. Smiley Wink

Re: reg incoming call

Well, as far as i know in India the call rates are definitely cheaper - may be cheapest in the world.  And telephone companies vie to give u a fone connection.  Here I've been trying for the past 2 weeks to get a landline/hone phone connection without any success.  I am sorry to say I 'm very disappointed

Re: reg incoming call

Yeah - we don't have much competition here on the landline side.  At least where I live it's AT&T or the cable co.  LOL!!  And imo, we really don't have the competition we could/should for the wireless services either, but that's another conversation. Smiley Happy

Comcast (my local cable company) offers a VoIP service, not a true landline service like AT&T.

I don't have the best knowledge about all the different technologies, but as I understand it Cox isn't VoIP.  You continue to use your existing telephones and they just add some kind of a connection point outside your home so the existing wiring can be used - it is digital telephone service.

It might be worth checking into if you are having problems getting service from the traditional landline provider in your area.

Re: reg incoming call

Im from Argentina. In my country you not pay for nothing incoming , voice calls , SMS or MMS.Its always the caller who pays.
If you call from a cell phone ,all rates are the same, no matter its a cell or a landline.Some carriers offer discounts o cheaper minutes if the call is between the same wireless carrier (like ATTs M2M but not entirely free)
The thing is when you call from a landline to a cell , there the call costs like a lot more.Lets say a call between 2 landline numbers would cost 2 cents,calling the same person to his cell would cost 35 cents.

Re: reg incoming call

Ya I'm doing just that.  We 've Time Warner in the Syracuse area - I'm trying for a connection through them.  Meanwhile I'm taking a pre-paid connection too - as for the post paid they are asking for the home phone number!
