True. I guess the university might not have their qos set for me. :-)

Sent from my phone. Spelling misturks caused by large thumbs.

Antennas Direct C2V antenna pointed @ curved building NE. DB4e pointed SSE. Cable free since May 2011.

By using a VoIP app on the phone with WiFi. It only works when WiFi is available. It can save a lot of money on some WiFi plans.

I use what's called a 'softphone' app on a cell phone, CSipSimple in my case. You set the softphone up with your VOIP services info, and as mentioned, as long as you get a WiFi signal, you have "a free cell phone". (Note the quotes as it is not a "cell" service per'se, but it is mobile.)

With Shaw Go WiFi as prevalent as it is in Victoria I'm never too far from a signal. (And here I use to rail against paying for a service I had no need for...)

I'm not really "a phone guy". It's just a handy addition to my Voip service if needed. Seeing payphones have gone the way of the Dodo.

Switching to Voip, has saved me a TON of money so far, ok, comparatively speaking. <$6 since Nov 11th, where for the same time period I'd have spent $60 through Shaw for 'Personal Home Phone'. 90% savings, is a ton of money to a poor guy like me. (Fixed disability income....as everything around us keeps going up and up and up, my income remains the same.)

Is there a way to send a voice mail from voip.ms to a Bell number without ringing the phone? I know it's possible Bell to Bell.

Typed on my smartphone. But I typed it with dumb thumbs so please excuse misturks.

I'm using an Aastra digital phone, if that matters.
Hi, I realize this is an old conversation but I'm in the same situation as tux, live in Winnipeg using Voip.ms and am receiving no incoming CNAM information. Has anyone figured this out?
