Investigating pc to phone options like Net2phone.com and dialpad.com. Dialpad has pretty inexpensive monthly rates, and the prepaid rates are the same as Net2pad. So I'm going to try out Dialpad and see how that is. It'd be more convenient to be able to call from my cell phone, but in that situation my parents can always call me back. Heh. If my home connection proves too flaky, I'll think about getting a land line. It might be better to just test what's wrong with my friend's connection and fix that. Laf. I haven't been able to use his wireless network in months.
