July 25, 2008, Newsletter Issue #103: Free VOIP: Not a Primary Phone

Tip of the Week

While Skype and other free VOIP services are getting some deserved attention, these services still have enough limits and drawbacks to prevent them from being effectively used as a primary phone. For example, Skype offers no 911 service. And you can't port your current phone number over to Skype. And Skype only works as a free service to other Skype users. Vonage or other major commercial services are much more comparable to standard commercial phone service and can be used as primary phones.
