Staying Connected without a Cell Phone

October 18 2012

Get the know how to stay connected without a phone. Iyaz shows you how to live an Internet-connected life without a cell phone. We're dropping the cell phone and start using data only! Special guest Tom Merritt joins in.

Materials
- Hotspot
- Mobile device: this can be an iPad, iPod touch, Galaxy Player, even an old cell phone

How to Receive Communications
You'll probably want a phone number. We're going to get one from Google Voice. Google Voice gives you access to your calls on the web. You can even set up all kinds of rules for which phone rings at which time.

Google Voice also can send and receive text messages. The downside is that you don't get MMS support and it's US only right now.

Apps for your device:
- Google Voice Official App (iOS)
- Google Voice Official App (Android)
- Talkatone (iOS and Android)

How do you answer calls?
The Google Voice app doesn't do that. Instead, use Talkatone to make and receive calls.

Alternatively, you can use Skype to make and receive calls. You’ll need to get a Skype Online number which is not free, but very useful overall.

Mobile Hotspot Options:
- Virgin Mobile Hotspots
- Verizon Wireless
- iPad with Cellular
- FreedomPop
