    hey all,

    not quiet sure where to post this, but it seems like a place to post a random question.
    anyway i moved to europe, but i still try to keep in touch with friends and some business partners, which means like crazy expensive phone bills. then i started using skype with its unlimited world package, but i been having problems with them lately and they pretty much suck with their policies.
    now im trying to find a SIP/VOIP provider which allows me to pay monthly and i get unlimted US calling. i been looking at VOIPBUSTER.com which is cheaper then skype and i also looked at icall.com but my NAT is blocking it and its company router so i cant change any settings.

    i google searching stuff but cant find anything interesting.

    thanks, -s

    Can't you get Vonage or something, have it shipped to a US address, and get a US telephone number, and then have somebody ship it to you.
    Since it goes over IP, it won't be "Long distance" to call to US.

    i dont know if that would work since the ip isnt really a US one unless i get a proxy too.
    otherwise i could also just get one of those http://www.ooma.com/ Ooma boxes which gives you no monthly fees and free US calling.

    I have Ooma and love it.
    All VOIP has some issues-but they have an awesome forum like MacRumors were everyone helps each other-works great.
    Lots of folks activate them in the US and then take them overseas.
