Twenty percent of Americans have permanently dropped landline phone service. Most of them are using their cell phone instead. But I'm curious about those of you who have tried some of the VoIP services such as magicJack, Ooma or others.

The advantage of VoIP is being able to drop the monthly bill from Qwest or other provider, but if you use Ooma or magicJack or others such as Skype with an iPod Touch, do you like it?
