    Last time I had a home phone, we used Vonage. Flat rate of $25/mo, I think it topped out at $28 something with taxes. Crystal-clear reception, no dropped calls or static or anything. We just use cellphones now, though, but if we were to go back to a landline for some reason, it'd be on Vonage.

    I have a normal land line and cell phones as well, but I also use Skype. It costs me only 0.02 cents per minute to call anywhere in the United States (and most other countries such as Canada, Norway, England, etc). It has also been flawless, no static, dropped calls or anything like that and works perfectly fine.

    I use VoIP and apart from the first few months in 2006, it does work quite well. Only problem is that if your internet provider is down, your phone's gone as well.
