Phone Alternative - magicJack

Earlier I posted about switching my phone to a VOIP service... hold the presses... I think I found a more appealing option... magicJack!  magicJack is a VOIP service that costs $20 a year for unlimited local and long distance calls... that's right a $20 a YEAR!!!  The only up front cost is $40 for the hardware to connect to your PC or Mac, and with that $40 purchase you get the first year of service free.

There's only one problem, as of today you cannot switch your home phone number to this service.  The folks at magicJack say they are working on it and hope to allow you to switch your home phone number for a small fee.
