Vonage - Google Voice - Skype

I was getting tired of paying Vonage $35 / month (after taxes) for a phone line.  Plus I found I liked using Skype for making calls because I could do it hands free.   I also have a Google Voice number I give out because it rings my office (Vonage) and mobile.

What to do?

For $3.00 / month you get unlimited calls on Skype, plus you can call from your iPad or laptop.  I set the caller id to my Google voice number.  Google Voice is free this year in the US, so I use that to make traditional handset calls (ringing my analogue Vonage phone).  I cut Vonage down to 300 minutes for $17/month (after taxes).   I'm now $14 / month ahead and have a very flexible phone system.
