Anyone using touch5 as a phone with app

I'd like to try using my new iPod touch 5 as a phone using an app like talkatone or some other and a headset. Comments please.

Talk atone works well as long as your network speeds are good and the network doesn't block VOIP. I use it to text and occasionally make calls. My home network is a bit to slow (only 800k) upstream and my university blocks VOIP, so I can't use it as a phone replacement. Line 2 seemed to have better call quality.

AcroBits works great with VOiP.ms

The in app codec for low bandwidth G.729 works great.
