    *besides yourself*, how many....?

    Many of the people in this newsgroup might use a VOIP number as their
    only phone number, but that's because (in most cases) you are an early
    adopter of things like this. But *besides yourself*, how many people do
    you know (not just know thru this NG, but know IRL) who do it?

    only phone number, but that's because (in most cases) you are an early
    adopter of things like this. But *besides yourself*, how many people do

    If it's someone you "know", you would know either because they talk with
    you about it, or you find the same number sometimes ringing thru to
    their home, sometimes ringing thru to their office, sometimes reaching
    them on their cell phone, etc. and you can tell (by the call quality)
    that you aren't just reaching them on their cell phone at 3 different
    locations.

    That's the problem, the call quality is indistinguishable from the call
    quality on a normal land line or cell phone. But to be fair, I probably
    have never been on a VOIP to VOIP call, it's cell to VOIP or landline to
    VOIP.

    I have been, lots of times, essentially because calls between
    customers on my VSPs are free.
