Free phone number

I’ve been using this provider since it came out, and I couldn’t love it more. I originally used it because my landline was local only, and that was my way around. Now, I use the Simonics gateway to attach it to my Asterisk system. If you need a couple lines as failovers or just don’t wanna pay way too much, this is the way to go. PS. Also great if you’re poor. That’s why I used it.

Pros: Free phone number and texting.
Cons: No direct SIP access without having to use a gateway.
Would Recommend: Yes

Consistency, quality

I love Google Voice and the ObiHai boxes and have set-up a number of configurations with this combinations for individuals and businesses. The back-end features are great. Having transcribed voicemail, the ability to text, and the call logs are perfect. The integration of an address book to provide callerID information. The inability to access multiple lines at once (not a real limitation with the inclusion of Obi into the mix)(due to the fact that it is a free service that I am sure has been abused many times by the scum of the earth) is an unfortunate limitation for serious business users.

Free, integrated

Pros: free, integrated with google's suite of services.
Cons: occasional dropped calls via mobile, but hey - can't be worse than AT&T AMIRITE?.
Would Recommend: Yes

Good sound quality

Free and very good sound quality. The servers sometimes go down resulting in an outage but the price negates the small inconvenience.
