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
Thanks for the news; it sounds great. I wonder how they make their money? It's worth stating that the two VoIP providers I've mentioned have stood the test of time which is worth something. Also, the two I've mentioned support generic SIP-based ATA's whereas it seems Google requires a specific one. This allows you to switch providers without changing your hardware if the need arises. Google Voice reminds me somewhat of MagicJack which was incredibly cheap, but based upon anecdotal evidence isn't very reliable. Having said that, it will certainly be interesting to see how things develop. For those wishing to stay current with VoIP things, this is my favorite site:
VOIP Tech Chat forum | DSLReports.com, ISP Information
