    I just don't see the relevance anymore in using capped data plans to make calls thus any of these apps. The newest offerings (my brothers prepaid android from Tmobile) have unlimited text and voice anyway, but the data is very limited. You must be kidding to want to use wifi; use a $10 cordless phone with $3/month voip. It will last you 10 years too.

    I'm still using Vonage at five times the cost. Where do you get $3/month voip?

    @TJGeezer: There's Ooma at Fry's (can cost $200 initially) which is what we have and I saw Netttalk at Compusa outlet stores (think it only costs $40 and includes first year of service). Don't forget Magic Jack Plus available anywhere - $40/yr. I wasn't gonna read this reply, glad I did.
