Verizon is considering to offer a landline phone service for only $5 a month. Yes. There are some gotcha’s in the offer. First you could receive incoming calls only. The exception would be to call 911 or Verizon customer service for outgoing calls. But for those in rural areas where cell service is spotty, this could be an alternative to the over priced rates being charged by AT$T.

One thing that is not mentioned in the article is how much taxes would be. We are all familiar with the teaser rates offered only to be hit with taxes upon taxes for access here, access everywhere fees. I like to know the total cost.

What about you? Would you even consider a landline with these limitations?

Comments welcome.
