I’m a really, really
picky eater. I don’t eat cream-based soups,chocolate-covered fruit, anything that lived in a body of water, ...or Taco Bell. There are a lot of things I do eat, but macaroni and cheese is not one of them. Or cheeseburgers. Or any sandwich that has cheese. This is why I love buffets. I can pay one price and pick what I want. If I want a plate of spring rolls and pudding, I can have a plate of spring rolls and pudding. No one’s judging me (out loud, anyways). If I want to try the Szechuan chicken, then I can try it without having to pay more money. If I like it, I can have more.
I love having options with small price tags and unlimited quantities. That’s why I love Armstrong Telephone. It’s a veritable smorgasbord of features.
I’ve tried the usual offerings—call waiting, caller ID, voice-mail—as well as some new ones, like call forwarding, 3-way calling, and caller ID on TV. I especially love caller ID on TV. I can never figure out where my cordless phones are, so I don’t have to run all over the place to find a phone just to find out it’s a telemarketer. I also love that I can forward my voice-mails to my e-mail at work, so I never miss an important call.
And the unlimited long distance is definitely the spring roll of my buffet. My brother just moved to D.C., and I call him as much as I want (lucky guy). I never have to think about if someone is out of my local calling area before I call them. And I no longer have to depend on my cell phone for long distance calls or tolerate the poor reception I get on my cell when I’m in the house.
The online account manager is truly the coup de gras of Armstrong Telephone—the dessert table, if you will. You can see and do so many things on by visiting Armstrongonewire.com's Online Telephone Account Management site
. You can change your features settings, schedule call forwarding, even set up Caller ID on TV. Or, as I like to think of Caller ID on TV, the delicious hot fudge on top of a decadent sundae.
And Armstrong Telephone’s price? Definitely the maraschino cherry.
I’m hungry. I think I’ll use Directory Assistance on my Armstrong Telephone to see where the nearest buffet is. I hope they have pudding.
