I used sipphone for a little while, and had serious quality issues with
the calls I made. I also couldn't have a local phone number in Utah
country. Their service worked, but seemed like the backbone they were on
didn't work well with sfcn because the voice was choppy. I looked at
others, but if you want you can setup a asterisk server if you want with
viatalk. I tried someone else out as well and they allowed an asterisk
server, but I couldn't connect to them with ekiga or linphone. I use
ekiga for my phone.
