When this error is shown, if I just refresh the registration, it works. So I don't believe anything is wrong with the VOIP provider or setup. It seems like something on my phone might be falling asleep, and that breaks the connection until refreshed, or something similar. [more inside]
In the next few days, I'll be making two long (90+ minute each) calls from the US to mobile phones in the Netherlands. I prefer to use my landline for these calls, which is Voip through Xfinity. Their international calling plan, which is $10 for 300 minutes, would be awesome but it specifically doesn't cover Dutch mobile phones. The Xfinity rate is $.30/minute, which is more than I'd like to pay. What options do I have? [more inside]

AT&T recently upgraded its wiring in our area and made U-verse broadband available. We had it installed (at 6 Mbps) the day after Christmas, and so far it is working well. Can we do VOIP phone through the AT&T router without getting the service from AT&T? [more inside]
Like a lot of folks, I bought an Obihai VOIP adapter primarily for the free Google Voice XMPP calling, and like a lot of folks, I'm saddened by the loss of the essentially free home phone service. Obihai has listed Anveo and Phone Power as "Approved Service Partners", but there seem to be a lot of other options out there, and I was just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for BYOD VOIP providers that are affordable but also likely to be around in a year or two so I don't have to find a new provider on short notice.

I'm thinking of switching phone services, as I often do. It's such a hassle to keep porting phone numbers (LNP), or, actually switching phone numbers. My particular situation is that I have two phone numbers of Vonage, and one on my iPhone - I want to keep the iPhone but dump Vonage while keeping the numbers - I want to try Skype, but they don't let you port phone numbers in. What's a cheap way to keep these phone numbers? More specifically, I'm curious about the following: [more inside]

VoIP over EVDO. If you've tried it (especially on Sprint's Rev A EVDO), how do you like it? I'd be using Skype, using it rarely, and only using it during calls -- not leaving it idling and using bandwidth. (With my current Sprint phone-as-modem setup on 1xRTT, I average 400-600ms pings -- i.e., too much latency for VoIP even if I had enough bandwidth. But on Sprint's now active EVDO Rev A, they claim latency of 100-150ms and upstream averaging 300-400k.) Yes, I know EVDO is not in the TOS. And I connect primarily from NYC in strong-signal areas.
I've been 'administering' my office's Avaya IP Office phone system for about a year and a half. I say 'administering' because I have no idea what I'm doing.

I just got screwed by a VOIP company. After a month of trying to reinstate a virtual number they accidently deleted, they’ve now confessed that they assigned it to someone else. I asked “What can you do to make this right”, and all they said was “we can give you a new phone number”. What official-type people can I complain to so I can get “The Rage” out of my system?
