I stopped by the Ooma booth at CES and was very impressed with their product and service. You buy their box for $250, hook up your old phones to it, and you never have to pay anything for phone service, ever (not including, of course, the broadband service). The fellow I talked to, told me when he travels overseas he brings along the box, hooks it up to the internet, adds a handset, and receives calls on his local number as if he was home. You can also be part of the Ooma community that identifies and black lists direct marketers who don't think the "do not call" list applies to them. For $100 a year you can move up to the premium service that gets you another line among other enhancements.
