Depending on which you choose, you’ll receive, respectively:

  • Unlimited¹ local and long distance in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico.
  • 750 minutes of outbound local and long distance home phone service across the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico at only 3.9¢ for every minute after.

With all three plans you’ll get a Vonage Box™ sent to you for free. Specifically, the equipment and activation are free for everyone, but only delivery within the U.S. is free. It is, however, what allows you to use the Puerto Rico calling code as if it were part of a domestic U.S. call instead of a long distance one. And while one Vonage Box is great, two working together are simply amazing. For instance, if say your papa back in P.R. needs to call you up more frequently, you can send him a Vonage Box² after signing him up for an account, and that will enable him to dial out with his own U.S.-based area code and number! All of his calls to the U.S. will then be treated as simple domestic calls. Plus, all calls between Vonage customers are free, so you two can now talk unlimited regardless of what plan you started out with.

And if you ever move, your number will be locked into your Vonage Box. All you have to do to take your number with you is to bring the Vonage Box! Call Puerto Rico today with Vonage!
