I'm thinking of dumping my phone service for VoIP. It would save me about $30 per month. Has anyone tried it yet ? If so what has been your experience ? (i.e. call quality, 911 service, equipment issues, customer service), and which service did you use ? I've been looking into VOnage only because it is the most heavily advertised.

Well I use Skype for my overseas conversations...but for US calls i have unlimited longdistance ..day / night with my local carrier....along with DSL...all for one small price....
I have heard names like packet8 and broadvoiceThere must be somewhere a review of different services, maybe Consumers Reports style, or others.
This company has comparison to Vonage and ATT (not independant comparison)http://www.broadvoice.com/
i use my cell phone constantly, but am considering some kind of VOIP for my next apartment. thats up to the gf, and if i can convince her, though.
the big problem (that i've seen/heard) is local 911 service through the fone.
Nope, since there isn't a good, cheap wireless voip phone yet that can also connect to local telephone companies.
i use Voip.
Phones? Whats that? Who needs phones when there is the internet :bigsmile:
Just saw yesterday a movie Phone Booth. No phones, no movie
I'm beta testing the AOL VoIP service. Seems to work pretty good. Lot's of fancy call handling options.
