Re: any experiences putting home phone number on internet-connected boat?

Hi Brad,

I use Google Voice. GV rolls to any phone numbers you like simultaneously. Mine rolls to my AT&T iPhone, SkypeIn, and whatever local number I'm using. Everything rings at once and the call goes to whatever device is answered first. In addition to GV voicemail accessible over the phone you can get the audio over the Internet and in a voice-to-text e-mail.

I know cruisers using Vonage but have no personal experience with it aboard. The dependence on a little hardware box was not attractive to me. My partner Janet uses Vonage for her home office fax and is generally pleased with it.
