Well, here's what I finally did -- I bought a T-Mobile smartphone with only 500 min/mo talk time but unlimited talk time while on Wi-Fi, so I bought a Wi-Fi hotspot too. That way, I can use it with my laptop, tablet, or whatever I want. Then I bought a $30 USB Wi-Fi stick for my desktop, and that's what I'm using to create this post. And overall, my monthly charges will be less than what I was paying with Clear, and the speed and reliability are just fine for what I do (no online gaming, movie watching, etc.).
Best of all, they can't harass me with robo-calls, BECAUSE NOBODY CAN GET THROUGH ON MY LAND LINE! LOL! That's the whole reason I cancelled in the first place, and even if they fixed it now, it's disconnected. I'm using my cell phone exclusively, and they don't have that number. *snicker*
Hee hee, ha ha, wish I had done this 3 weeks ago instead of having people wonder why I just wasn't returning their calls....
