Vonage I am going to make a guess here that you are with Cingular, my experience with EDGE



I am going to make a guess here that you are with Cingular, my experience with EDGE comes from T-Mobile.

EDGE for Voip

As far as using EDGE for Voip, you make be successful but even if you were you would be in violation of the terms of service (for all the carriers as far as I know). My experiences with EDGE have led me to believe that I could not make consistent quality calls because of latency and jitter.

WiFi Phone

The process for me of getting a soft phone client up and running on my PC is fairly long. I typically have a several minute startup time on my laptop. If I found myself using my laptop to make calls frequently then I would look at a WiFi phone. The other problem is that it is not convenient to receive incoming calls on a computer based softphone when you are mobile.

One current problem with WiFi phones is the inability to roam between networks. This means that if you want to make calls you will have to stay in one place. There does appear to be the ability to roam between access points on the same subnet with the same DHCP server so you may be able to roam around in an office environment.

Emergency Use

This really comes down to where you typically are and what you define as an emergency. Any mobile phone can make 911 calls without having service activated. That doesn't help you if you classify a call to the auto-club for a break down as an emergency.

Someone should sell the idea of the AAA working with cell phone companies to provide reverse billing for calls from inactivated cell phones. I wonder what kind of $ hit the mobile phone companies would take if such a scheme were implemented. But, I digress.

GSM with WiFi

The new VoIP/GSM phones that I am aware of use a special routing protocol that allows the provider to route your calls over WiFi and then through their switches. The advantage is that it provides seamless roaming onto and off of a WiFi network from a GSM network. The disadvantage is of course that you can't use a third party Voip provider.

This does not preclude the use of a separate Voip client on the phones. It simply doesn't provide the integration with the GSM side of the phone.

Prepaid Voice with Data

I have not been able to find a solution that allowed me to combine the two. That being said you could probably drop the voice off your data plan altogether and get a separate prepaid voice plan.

Carrying Two Phones

If you truly spend 90% of your time covered by WiFi then I think your final proposal has a lot of merit. However, you are going to have to carry two phones around instead of one. If I were you I would be looking for a phone that has a built in WiFi client that also could be used on a prepaid plan. I would make certain that the phone book could be addressed from both sides of the system. This might mean carrying a larger more expensive device, ike a PDA/Phone combo.

Of course the roaming issues I covered above prohibit me from considering that path at this time.
