Convert Your Landline to T-Mobile LineLink = FREE or $10/month

+4 Deal Score
19,979 Views
As a T-Mobile customer many of us were able to pick up 2 free lines the weekend before thanksgiving. Now I have 7 lines for 110 dollars! (5 paid, 2 free)


T-Mobile recently reintroduced their VoIP services as LineLink. I was able to port my Home Phone Line (Landline) to Line Link and leverage one of the free lines I received 4 weeks ago. There are no extra charges and if you call the number in the link, you may be able to get the LineLink adapter for free as well

How LineLink works?
It's similar to other VoIP services like Ooma, MagicJack, etc. You get a LineLink VoIP Adapter to connect to your internet and your phone line. It takes Micro sim card which is included with your LineLink.

Most may not have immediate use for the 2 free lines added to your service. But this is a great alternative.

Cost: Free/taxes, One of the free lines will be converted into a data line to use with LineLink. All you will owe is taxes which you already are paying once the free line was added. woot

If you do not have a free line to spare you can add the service for $10/month. Or if you do not have T-Mobile you can add this service for $20/month

Pluses: Includes unlimited calls to US, Canada and Mexico (even if you are on the simple choice plan, this line will have access to Canada and Mexico)

Negatives: There are no added features like Caller ID or Call Waiting

Great explanation of deal potential. This is an interesting offering. Going to see if any of my elderly neighbors or single Mom's can benefit from this in my hood.

I can tell when I look at networks near me that multiple neighbors have T-mo phones. And I know one neighbor (who had a stroke) has Metro so he may be able to benefit from this if converted.....

Agreed. When GV is available for free, why should one go for paid one??

It's to make use of your extra free line on t-mobile. GV is a choice, backed by little support. Also does GV support E911?

Are you sure this counts as an extra line? why would you want this when you can get cellular service? I dont think GV supports E911

No, but almost every cell phone supports 911. I leave a cell phone w/o sim cards by my land lines. Everyone knows to use these for 911 calls...

Hmm. I have a home alarm and was thinking about ditching my landline in favor of VoIP and cell backup. But this might kill two birds with a single stone. Anyone else doing that?

This is a horrible deal, GV or Ooma is much better and Ooma has E911 support.

This deal should be in deal talk, not in hot deals as this is the opposite of a hot deal, this is a bad deal for 99.99% of everyone ever... and only a not o bad deal for the other 0.01%.

You can get an Ooma for under $100 and only pay taxes, you get caller ID and call waiting (I believe) along with E911.

You can add E911 to GV for $12/year with GV911.com. I've been using them for several years with no issues.

It's funny, but GV used to be a real crap shoot in call quality and reliability, but for several years it's been exactly like a land line.

I have Ooma with an optional incoming number in Canada. TMo does not have that feature.

For those asking, i.e. people who have those multifunction printers or home offices, LineLink does not work for faxing. Was about to get it, but it looks like my Ooma will remain my free fax line.

A better use of that, or those, extra lines is to get the free (small activation fee of about $30) T-Mobile SyncUp Drive so you have on board diagnostics, WiFi and tracking device in one in your vehicle. Put an Echo Dot in the Aux port by audio cable and power into a USB port. check compatibility with older cars first. Boots up and connects to the WiFi on the SyncUp Drive when you turn the ignition.

And yet if you are a single person with one line the bill is $70./month. I have to pay FULL RETAIL for a Samsung Galaxy S7.. and it has to be unlocked... I'm getting screwed by TMobile because I don't have a family. And I tried and didn't like Verizon ( more expensive than TMOBILE ) and AT&T promised me unlimited everything for $50/month... in 5 months not ONE bill was under $125. ! And NO I don't have anyone to get a plan with....everyone I know is already part of a group plan from one company or another
