Do you have caller ID and long distance on your phone plan? Do you wish you did?

We currently do not have caller ID and long distance on our phone plan. I eventally want to get caller ID so we can know who's calling us when the phone rings. Long distance would be a great thing because then we could stop using our cell phones when we need to make long distance calls because it's pain using our cell phones since we don't have the best of reception our here in our area.

Well, back when we had a home phone, we had to have Long distance since everyone we ever call was considered Long distance. It also was not the cheapest even though they have some better plans now than before. But personally, I prefer my Cell phone over a home phone as it has Long distance, and Caller ID included.

A majority of the people we call are long distance, my husband's family is in the majority. Whenever we need to call them for some reason, we have to use our cell phones. It's not that bad since we don't have to call them that often, but the reception still stinks out here.

I have unlimited long distance and caller id with my home phone service. I pay about $60 a month. It works well for my family and for us, it is cheaper than a contract for cell phones would be.

WE're able to have long distance and caller ID on our cell phones, but we don't have very good reception out in our area. We get dropped calls on occasion.

i think that cell phones are the best way to go. then you have long distance and caller id. plus they are a lot cheeper that having a house phone

They might be cheaper than the most expensive phone plan, but if you don't have a very good reception in your area, it's not a great thing to have.

I have caller ID and at times it can be a real lifesaver in that I can let the answering machine pick up calls that I don't want to hassle with. I also have a free long distance service so I don't have to worry about running up our phone bill when I talk to my Dad up North. [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS**[/b]

My land line phone has a facility of caller id and I can call anywhere in my country. Well, to make ISD calls I need to use my cellphone because this facility is not available on my phone.

I did have caller ID on my home phone for a while, but as I mainly use the phone to connect to the Internet I canceled this feature. I do however have caller ID on my cell phone. I wish I had long distance on my plan, but unfortunately I do not. As my husband and I probably wouldn't use it very often anyway we don't see the point in getting it. Though it would be nice to have it at the same time. I'll have to look into it to see whether or not it would be worth it.
