    I was thinking about switching my phone service to VoIP (through Vonage) and wanted to see if anyone had any experience with this and if there were any compatibility issues with Macs. Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    As far as I know the VoIP works through your broadband connection, you plug the box straight into your router. So I don't think it would be any problem for you to use it with a Mac. (Somebody correct me if you know differently)
    I have a VoIP phone -- though not through vonage... it's a cheaper service -- and I think it's great! There was no software to install, by the way.

    Yeah, I'm about to plug in and test Sun Rocket (much cheaper)...

    I have CallVantage and it works great. There is no software to install as the VOIP is all network-bound. The computer in not involved. To configure your VOIP router you use a web interface. Any PC with a browser can configure the router.
