I have Bellsouth, and have had for years (with no other choice). Recently, I got an ad in the mail for IDT Local and Unlimited Long Distance for $39.95/mo. That's WAY under Bellsouth's Unlimited offer.

I've been using IDT Long Distance (3.95/mo, 5c anytime) for a while, and I've been satisfied. I'm just wondering if I can expect decent local if I switch.

I am now the guinea pig.
I signed up this morning- we'll see.

$39.95/mo for unlimited local and long distance. Call Waiting, Caller ID, 3-way, etc, included.

I too signed on almost a month ago for the same plan you mentioned.

I'll let you know as soon as we get our first bill! LOL

I agree with Scooter, it took me fooooooorrreeevveeerr to get someone on the phone. But, once I did, they were very pleasant and helpful!

Well, it's not going well, so far. They STILL haven't transferred the service.

Well, I got my first bill and I'm not happy.

We signed on for 39.95 a month unlimited everything. Our billwas $115.00!!!!!

Not only did they cahrge us for 2 months in the first billing... but instead of 39.95, it is that PLUS an additional 45% in surcharges!!! I am now told in reality our monthly bill will be about $56 a month.

NOT WHAT I SIGNED ON FOR!!

It's looks like mine FINALLY switched over yesterday.

I knew there would be additional charges, but I must say I'm a little surprised at 40% surcharges.

I likely won't be staying, at that price. In fact, I asked about these charges, and was quoted a notably lower % on the phone. He said "high 40s, probably."

Todd-

Any update on the IDT service? I am contemplating the switch myself. Currently, I have the Verizon plan (quoted at $59.95 a month, but in reality, when all is said and done, really $81 a month). How is the service? What is the total price after all surcharges, taxes, etc....

thanks
Allan
