Phone.com, you have to admit, definitely has one of the best domain names in the entire market place. I have no idea how much they had to pay for their domain name, but it had to cost a fortune. So, do they deliver on their promise? Can they possibly live up to the potential of a domain name like phone.com? Lets find out
Overall, we were very pleasantly surprised by phone.com's offerings. Sometimes, when a company is positioned on such a hot piece of internet real estate like phone.com, you may expect their services to be over-priced, or somehow lacking in quality. But this is not the case at all for Phone.com. They not only offer a very competitive product, but it is also very high quality as well. Not only that, but it is one of the cheapest plans around if you are a small business or home user! For less than $5 a month, you get your own forwarding number and 300 minutes per month! Alas, there is always a catch, so it is not a toll free number, sadly. For that, you need to pony up about 10 bucks a month. Still a good deal though!
Lets break down the Pros and Cons a bit further
Nothing is perfect, right? Phone.com is nearly perfect for users that need less than 4 lines. Otherwise, not so much

In conclusion, we give Phone.com 4.5 stars. We love their pricing, the ability to get a non toll free number so cheap, which is perfect for many small local businesses. We also love their HUGE feature list, which is so big, we can't even mention them all. Actually that's not true, we can mention them all, and we did above! For the prices they offer, the plans are a great deal, and whether you need just a forwarding plan, or a plan with an internet analog phone adaptor, you can get exactly what you are looking for for about $10-$35 a month. We call that a great deal, and a mighty good use of the phone.com domain.
