Hi Folks,

Does anyone have experience with VoiceStick? I just signed up for Vonage and now realize that was a mistake. I want to be able to use my computer directly for phone calls preferably through Outlook, and I need virtual numbers in multiple area codes. VoiceStick has the softphone, but not the virtual numbers... any suggestions? I could just pay Vonage for a SoftPhone line, but then I have two lines not one unified line...

Thanks for your help!

I can't think of any other than BroadVoice. I used to have BV until last year when I had crappy voice and underterministic dead line. No idea how the service is now..

I've never heard of VoiceStick. Do you have any further information about them?

I've read a couple of articles that mention the product and was looking for more shared ignorance. :P They've been getting some good press lately, I just don't know as much about them as, say, Vonage or Packet8. Their main product seems to be a USB stick w/ the software loaded on it, so you can access the softphone from any computer. You can also download the software online (although I've had trouble getting it through Norton Security) or they have a phone adapter for $70.

A couple of key features that seem to be missing are the ability to have virtual numbers (different area codes that ring to the same place) and a business-class PBX option w/ extensions, transfers, etc.

They do have this really cool feature where you can setup your landline or physical phone number, then use VoiceStick as a relay to make long distance calls. So if the area code of your VoiceStick line is local for your landline, you just call your VoiceStick number, it picks up the caller ID, then directs you to enter the number you want to call. This is also helpful for a SOHO if you want to have the caller ID be something other than your home line.

I've had it about a week now and it seems to be working very well. We traveled out of town this weekend, and the people we stayed with had no cell coverage in the house, but they did have wifi, so I was able to make several business calls from the laptop using the softphone and without using their long distance.

Also, I just found this little adapter from Radio Shack that lets you use your cellphone headset on your computer, so you don't have to lug around a separate headset or mic.http://www.radioshack.com/product.asp?catalog%5Fname=CTLG&product%5Fid=42-2428

I'd like to try their service, and found they currently offer a promo that an existing user send an invitation email to one of his friends, the one signed using the email will get credit of 24.99. Can you send me such an email? Thanks

Just saw the Voicestick latest promo at one of their agents sites.

They have a deal on a free local number with voicemail and you get a $5 trial credit for calling.

Or if you sign up for the $19.99 plan you get $20

Or the $25 plan you get $25

Saw it at
