Re: voip.ms Toronto servers

I am a huge fan of the Panasonic KX-TGP55 deskphone + handsets. I don't use ATA's if I can avoid them, the problem is everyone wants to spend the least money possible on the switch to VoIP and ATA's at the cheapest. People seem to like Obi ATA now days.

If you can afford to spend 3-4x more, Panasonic's cordless handsets have standard/easily replaced rechargeable AA batteries and if they aren't physically damaged your phones last forever.

I know what you're saying, but I wish to stick with an ATA solution.

$250 for the set, $80 a pop on the handsets.

That's $410+HST out of the box for my deployment. Do you know how much single malt scotch that is?

Not. Going. To. Happen.

It depends how you use your phones, ah? From my perspective, I'm saving hundreds a month by not paying Bell POT's extortionist LD rates when I call an overseas mobile ($0.025/min to SFR Mobile at CWUS vs. $1.39/min at Bell), so the cost of a real IP phone is dirt cheap.

I have tried quiet a few hardware phones, always purchased through 8774e4voip. If you just need a basic deskphone, I found the snom 710 has the best value/features. If you need cordless handsets for a household I really dig the Panasonic's long term value because they don't have proprietary battery packs and are super easy to replace. The cheapest I see, you can get a TGP500 with 3 TPA50 handsets for $335 with shipping via UPS from 8774e4voip, or $355.50 from "CE Showroom" on Amazon. Can also save about 40 bucks COD if the sellers will ship with USPS instead of UPS ($8 brokerage fee at Canada Post vs $51.20 at UPS).
