I don't think so. If you mean that you don't want to miss calls while you're online, try callwave. I know some people who have it and like it. www.callwave.com

In the UK their starting to try and charge bandwidth usage limits. On a 1mb connection you only get 30gig a month. This isn't much if you surf the web alot and download music.

Yes but only in Canada.Call Bell,it costs $ 5 a month.But not exactly both only haveing access but your choice when the phone rings.
In other words "the pause that refreshes"
If it's a bill collector than you decide.
Please tell us where you are .
Is it Out on the ocean ? Makes a big diff.

Get a cell phone it will work.hee hee.
