My parents had to upgrade to the Telkom wireless landline phone. The thing took 2 weeks before you could dail out but still could not receive call. They gave it back and cancelled the line and number they had for the last 30 years. I have read some threads here on VOIP providers but I wonder why people would not simply get a call pack from Skype . Skype calls to landline and mobile seems cheaper than these Voip services . 400min for $9.90 Au. Or 25 cent ZAR / min .Still cheaper than VOIP and you can get a number for R600 a year if you really need one.
