    VoIP options... what are you guys using?

    Okay, besides the Vonage, SkyRocket, and Packet8 people... what else are you guys using for VoIP (voice over IP)?

    Let's see...
    Skype - works... sometimes has decent quality. more often, does not.
    VoiceStick - never heard of it until recently.
    Jajah - still researching this one. anybody with experience?
    Stanaphone - horrible server connections with their out service.
    VoIP Stunt - anything with the word "stunt" in it... crash and burn prone.
    Gizmo Project - useable on computer to computer, calling out have yet to try.
    Do you guys know of any other VoIP where I could call regular phones? Hopefully something portable or useable via a laptop and wifi? I've given up on using Skype via my cell phone - I don't have, nor want a smart phone except for this or this - and the wifi phones by Skype and Linksys are just as expensive as a real damn phone.

    Just need a portable solution to make occasional phone calls. I've been trying out the Vonage VPhone with some connectivity problems.

    Yeah, that Zenum looks sleek and sexy as hell.

    ...surprised you forgot to put Gtalk on that list. You know all the carriers I have, so that is a moot point.

    oops... yeah, forgot Google Talk. Yahoo/MS Live Messenger also support voice out too. I guess I'm looking for "other" options.

    quite wrong, koolbabs. look at my list above.

    here's some more:
    There's a ton more. VoIP via Broadband can usually be tapped while on the move if they're not using some odd interface, almost all of the internet/software phones are SIP based anyway. I'd just rather have a softphone that I can run from my USB stick and keep on moving and tap into wifi hotspots. But so far, it's looking like Skype is the only one that's worked for me so far. And not too well.

    Anyway, in regards to your statement, there are many other options exist. I just need to find the right one for me.

    there is also http://www.fusiontel.com/

    Seem like they offer PC, landline, and cell packages. Might be something to look into...

    Hi,
    Have you heard of Vishing? It's similar to phishing except it can use VoIP. Here's Wikipedia definition of Vishing. Let's be carefull out there!

    here's another:
    VoIPStunt, Vonage, VoiceStick, Free World Dialup, and Internet Calls all seem to be based off of SJ Labs software... hmmm.
