    In Central & Eastern North Carolina, phone rates have recently gone up.
    Many of our customers are 100 miles from our office, which is making
    our phone bill rather high due to regular voice calling, and also the
    down loading, and/or up loading of changes to the Napco program. Does
    anyone know of a way to use a standard pre-purchased phone card with
    the Napco program? Thanks for your input. Robert

    SBC lets you make all the calls you want to anywhere excpt Alaska and Hawaii
    for $20. and phone cards are NEVER a good deal because of the connection
    charges. Shop around for a good deal on long distance service.

    What you need to do is contact your local sales office and ask for a
    representative to sit and go over your phone package. (be prepared to
    examine a years worth of useage) Look carefully at your usage and
    features. If you have a back line that only the employees use, is it
    really necessary to have 20 features when all you need is caller-id, if
    that? How many lines have conference, ring-back, hunting, or for that
    matter, long distance? If you don't need a feature, have the rep work
    through each line or group of lines to tailor the features to match
    what you use. If your long distance is predictable from specific
    regions, you may be better getting an unlimited plan for those regions
    and paying the excess if it's out of the region instead of a much
    higher rate and never call out of the area enough to hit the extra
    cost. Think about eliminating or combining lines if you can do duel
    roles on a single line. let's say you have DSL, many businesses
    maintain voice lines and a separate voice line for DSL. If you shift
    DSL to a seldom use voice line, you save there. Many local phone
    companies (Ma Bells) offer voip, but you should reserve those only for
    the nonessential voice calls. If you choose voip from the phone
    company, they can package it into your regular service as a bundle,
    saving you cost. Look into packaged bundle cell phones from the same
    company, you may be able to share services and cost instead of the
    landlines being one bill, the cells another, data another, and so on.
