Per prroots post - cheapest option for phone at this point is Google Voice. Free dedicated phone number (you pick from their extensive list), free calling to any US telephone #, free unlimited inbound calling, free voice mail (which transcribes voice mails to text and e-mails them if you'd like), and discount per minute calling to most worldwide countries - and no monthly fee. If you don't want to have to keep a computer on at all times and you have some form of an ethernet network running within your vessel, you can purchase the OBi110 ATA which has an ethernet port on one side and a port to connect to a regular phone on the other. It then connects to Google Voice and allows you to use a regular phone with the Google Voice system.
