Hi, i was considering getting a handset to use with skype (with skype
for the time being) but with all the new services and competition
(yahoo comes to mind) i forsee myself trying out other services. So,
does anyone know if most of these phones (or VoIP adapters for regular
phones) will work with most of the VoIP software? (Just for
clarification, i am not talking about the voip carriers like vonage,
sunrocket, etc). Any help would be greatly appreciated!

If you're simply talking about a handset to plug into the audio card of
your computer, you can be pretty sure, that they will work with any
software. If you want a proper standalone IP telephone, most are likely
to work with any provider (which provides you with username and password
for terminal configuration) except Skype, which is using their own
proprietary protocol for call setup.
