Call Wave...What A Headache!

Callwave is a product I fist learned about years ago when we had dial up internet service. It was ok back then, as most of you know or remember when on a dial up service it tied up your phone line and people would get a busy signal if you were online. What Callwave would do is allow people to call you, it would give a brief message stating that you were online and to leave a message. The caller would leave a brief message and a box would come up on your screen, similar to a caller I.D. giving the name and number of the caller and you could playback your messages. At first it was free for 30 days, then it was $4.95 a month, inevitablly it would increase ever so often. Now it is $14.95 a month and offers a lot more services. Thankfully now I have cable internet, and then there is the ever present and dearly loved cell phones that has voice mail, text messaging and so on so the Callwave is no longer needed by me.

My reason for giving this a low rating is because for months after my service was canceled I stilled recieved bills and to this day once in awhile Callwave still picks up and I cancelled this service more than 4 years ago! But atleast I am not still being charged for it. And in all honesty I do not know of anyone who still has dial up, and for $14.95 a month it would be more efficient to just buy an answering machine that actually attaches to your phone.
