What i would do first then is head over to voip.ms and create an account (that part is free) so your ready. If your going the full 9 yards and want inbound you might want to see what kind of number stock is available in your area. I am writing the tut right now so i will soon have it up for download later tonight hopefully.

As promised here is the tutorial i hammered out over the last 2 hours. I made it all nice by making a pdf so i am posting a download link. Enjoy.

mikemaher Profile, mikemaher Details - FileFront.com

the tutorial makes some assumptions and is based on trixbox CE but the methods can be used for asterisknow 1.5 beta1 as well. I just found trixbox CE works better.

I'm an expert in voip devices for this company and do lots of testing, so I like to know things :)

An expert.. yeah cheator .. j/k :D

Well its a matter of time. I'm busy ;)

I already have the hardware actually, I just need to sit my ass down and configure it. I also need to get permission to setup a sip trunk and to do so, you need a static IP which rogers doesn't provide. I'd use my DSL since its free, but i am too far from the CO.

So, once I have the ability to get a static IP, I'm there :)

I don't quite see your savings unless you use your phone very little.

$5-$1.49 leaves $3.51 so at 1.25c/min you get 280 minutes of calling time combined in/out a month - 4 hours 40 minutes (just over 9 minutes /day).

What do you do for 911?

Since its a sip trunk it could qualify for E911, however I don't know what voip.ms offers.

they offer e-911. ok so i might be paying more than 4% bucks it will still be less than$25 a month. take this into consideration. If you have to call longdistance how much is your phone bill permonth. since most long distance plans start at$20 on top of your regualr phone bill it would save you money.

As this is for home, voicemail doesn't give me any more advantages than my answering machine and how many personal phone lines could you possibly need? As this is for home phone, followme-findme really doesn't seem pprticularly useful in the face of simply forwarding the home phone to cell phone if needs be. Different strokes as they say.
