Very good call with Thilo Salmon from Sipgate. We’ve been a member for at least 5 years and I was really excited when I got a response on Twitter from none other the the co-founder and CEO of the company.[audio:http://media.blubrry.com/winelover/recordings.talkshoe.com/TC-22622/TS-224821.mp3|titles=Thilo Salmon Sipgate CEO]
Open a free Sipgate account and check out what they offer so your questions can be answered and your opinions aired!
Above is the Sipgate user panel. Sipgate offers 200 free minutes to test their system and a free USA phone number. Free calling between Sipgate extensions, of course but you can put several phones on a single account. I did just that and then called myself (from Europe to Europe) and found the lag to be as expected but what a great solution for newbies and people who want to experiment.
Sipgate does voicemail as expected but also, Google Voice-like ringing of multiple extensions. Try it out if you dare.
