MetroPCS Announces Landline Replacement Service
Today MetroPCS announced GroupLINE, a new service meant to help families save money and still be reachable at one central number. Essentially, outsiders will be able to dial one number and ring the mobile phones of up to five different members of a family at once. Each of the five lines will still maintain a separate phone number. GroupLINE will also offer a shared voicemail inbox. The service lets families cut their landline, but still be assured that everyone is reachable at a single number. GroupLINE can be added to any FamilyShare plan for an additional $5 per month.
So calling this one number...
What if the family is out and about to different places, they call the "landline" and then someone else answers before the desired person?
At that point, if they all have cell phones, why not call the person you want to talk to?
Previously, I thought that whoever was running Metro was pretty bright, but now I'm not so sure.
Hooray reading the whole read link before passing judgment...
