I'm amazed that I can get a phone that can call over wifi with no limits for $5/mo but AT&T will charge me $20/mo just to tack on 200-minute-per-month phone number onto my internet service.


Maybe I'm weird but I'm nostalgic for a home phone. I'd need to do some research, but it'd be awesome to be able to plug a sip phone into my router and connect it to some hosted server or whatever.

After a shower I realized that this nostalgia is ill-advised since it's just another vector for telemarketers to harass me and I'm already on record as saying that phone numbers need to die anyway.

@ishara and landline / VoIP services still use narrowband voice. Any reasonably recent cellphone or third-party service (eg: Signal) will give you HD voice.
