As you can see one way is to get VOIP with your ISP and the voip/nbn
modem can have a regular phone port on it which you plug in your
existing phone into it. Or you can get a hardware voip phone that plugs
directly into a network port of your nbn modem. Or you can use softphone
(a software phone) which is phone software that runs on your computer
that uses the internet connection of you computer, like skype except it
separates the software and the voip provider, since with a softphone you
can choose who the VOIP provider is.
A disadvantage of a softphone is you can't carry it around the house,
the advantage is you can wear a headset with mic (more comfortable) and
sit at your computer on an ergonomic chair, if you're using your
computer a lot (which I do) then it makes sense to have the phone as
software on the computer, but I have to exit the software if I am doing
something I don't want to be interrupted, and then phone messages people
leave for me go through to voicemail as email audio attachments I
receive, so when I check my email I can check the incoming phone message
emails as well.

I am here for online friends, hobbies, volunteer work, and working on
business ideas, and I am on Centrelink Disability Support Pension
(Schizophrenia & Aspergers). I suspect that what will probably work is
people who are on a Centrelink payment such as unemployed, disability,
or retired, since they can benefit from me and since it allows me to
give back to Centrelink, and also, if female friends then age 49+ and
less attractive so that they will find me attractive, also probably
overweight since I am overweight. However I can also work with highly
skilled people since I can make use of what I get from them that is
useful for me to be able to work with interesting concepts. Me:
