I think I understand how the Extend Home service works, but I’d like confirmation before I take the plunge.
Here’s my current setup:
- 3 RW phones; 2 My Choice (myself and son), and 1 Republic Refund (wife)
- Home phone using old land line number that I’ve had for 30+ years. Currently a VoIP service through my cable provider at $33.25/mo ($400/yr). I have an Analog Telephone Adapter (ATA) with an ethernet (RJ45) connection to my cable modem and telephone (RJ11) connection to my analog phone base. The phone has 3 handsets throughout the house.
I like having a home phone number that is separate from my and my wife’s cell numbers.
It looks like the Extend Home adapter is an ATA but it needs to have a RW phone and plan to be associated with. If I understand things, I would need to buy a new phone with a My Choice plan along with the Extend Home adapter. My home phone number could then be ported to that phone. To maximize my savings I would buy an inexpensive phone and select the Talk & Text plan at $150/yr (plus fees). I would then be saving over $200/yr so would make up the cost of the new phone and the Extend Home adapter in the first year.
Is my understanding correct? Have I missed anything about how the Extend Home adapter works?
