Currently have no plan on home phone and pay $37.97 (plan+touchtone+911). Without having to ask for anything he offered $9.95 Home Phone Lite. When asked for Caller Id (the only other feature I need), it went up to $19.99 with other crap thrown in. Could not get it reduced it any way. Accepted.
Currently have Fibe 12, with 50GB/month at $59.90 (incl. $4.95 modem lease). Offered new Fibe 12 plan 40GB at $25.97. I asked for increased bandwidth, he doubled it for free.
He said my previous bundle discounts for home phone and internet at $5.00 each is no longer applicable. When pressed he offered a $5.00 discount. So, the new plans stand at
Home phone (with caller id, call waiting, etc) - $19.95
Fibe 12 Internet plan (with 80 gb bandwidth) - $25.97
Less total discount $5.00, new phone + internet at ~ $41.00
My sincere thanks to the OP and everyone who posted here.
