The only thing gizmo5 seemed to have that I missed from a real VoIP service was the ability to encrypt calls between SIP users. However, since I also call abroad, and I primarily, or rather only, regular landlines, that's really moot. I personally use vitelity.net with an ATM to be able to use my regular phones. Vitelity is just fine, and I wonder if Google is really going to do something which could improve my service/pricing from what I enjoy now.
