Voice was not option when we joined Exede, & now I'm looking for back up to cell phone, and want to know as a subscriber to the 150gb plan, is there another monthly charge for Voice, and the other questions I asked. Also, from description it seems any phone I already own can be used for Voice. Correct?

Hi Linda

Voice can be added onto any account. It is 29.99/month and we use VOIP for our voice service. You can use almost any handset phone with it and we can port over any existing land line number as long as it's not a virtual rate center number (ie number from another town that you pay extra to keep when you move). here's all the information about it: https://www.exede.com/voip-satellite-phone/

I have Exede Voice, it works very well. I chose it over other VOIP phone service because using it does not count against my data usage as any other VOIP service would and, because the adapter is designed to work with satellite internet. I also love the  "Follow Me" feature that lets a call to my home phone ring my cell phone as well.

As if a VOIP service is going to eat all this data in the first place...lol. I will give you it might be optimized for satellite, but there are a lot cheaper VOIP options that work just fine with Exede, especially for a just backup to ones cell phone.
