My former provider went downhill so moving to voip.ms was like going from the 19th to the 21st century.
Have been using them since June 2010 for outgoing calls and since September 2010 for incoming calls. All working well with BYOD. Currently I am doing straight PAYG with a couple of DIDs. I will do this over a few months, and if charges seem high I may switch to a bucket.
The configuration can be overwhelming, but it's a VOIP geek's dream. The only feature they are missing is the ability to send me a text message when I have new voicemail. I currently use Value routing for outgoing toll-free calls, which is good enough for me but has noticeable drop outs. I use Premium routing for most other calls.
I also use CallCentric. The CallCentric interface is more polished, but they do not offer LIDB and the cost per minute is higher. Support is great for both.

I continue to be impressed with voip.ms. Problems are handled quickly, issues are noted on website, and they introduce new features periodically. Since I pay for all incoming and outgoing calls, I was concerned that it might cost more than my old provider, but so far my billings are well under; I'm not a big talker.
The one unresolved issue I have is my CNAM listing for a LEC number that I ported to voip.ms via their carrier StarNet aka PAETEC. I requested this listing in October and it still is not done. This in itself is not reason enough to drop them, but no one has been forthcoming about why they can't get this done.

I was advised in June 2011 that CNAM was not available in this market with any carrier. I don't recall the exact reason but they refunded my CNAM fee. Other than that I am still happy with their features and service and will continue to use them.

The one issue I had was a problem with how a (free) SIP direct call was inaccurately interpreted and billed. I documented the issue, they issued me a very reasonable explanation and apology as well as a generous credit. I would like to see things moving from their "planned improvements" listing to their "new features" more quickly but the service is solid for me.
