    I like the 2nd Line feature even if it's $15 a month. Cheaper than my cell phone bill now.

    I saw that app today in the news, it gets horrible reviews however. But it may just be people who don't know how to use it.

    Also wouldn't a SkypeIn number ($60/y) and a unlimited Skype out plan (2.95/m) with the FREE Skype app be a better option?

    The Line2app does not yet work with incoming calls (for free) if the app is not open but they do say it is coming. Currently it forwards the "free VOIP" call to your cell # charging you minutes.

    Once/if they are able to forward incoming calls to open the app directly then it would be worth it. Until then I'd suggest Skype.

    Switch to Android guys. You can get much better deals on service plans since the variety of providers and phones is greater.
