BasicTalk VoIP Phone Service & ATA Overview

I purchased this BasicTalk analog telephone adapter purely to see if the service was all it’s cracked up to be. While I still have a copper POTS landline I rely on heavily, I wanted to see if VoIP phone service would be a viable (and reliable) second phone line. Amazingly, the BasicTalk service allows you to replicate a traditional landline’s behavior by disable voicemail and call waiting, which is a feature I do like. There’s even an unadvertised (and unsupported) call transfer feature! In the end, I ended up returning the BasicTalk ATA since I already have a traditional landline.
