voip.ms newbie question
After reading several posts about voip.ms here, I've decided to venture into the world of voip and sip. However, I have a couple of newbie questions:
1. So if I buy a Cisco PAP2T, it will work with my regular vtech (or any) cordless phone, right?
2. I live in an apartment building where we have a intercom system.when people come, they will punch the buzz number, my regular phone will ring, and I will let them in. So if I switch to voip.ms, can my phone still do the same?
3. I'd like to get a new DID for now, play with it for a few months, if everything is ok, then maybe port my current phone number. Can I cancel the first DID at that point?

2. See the following thread on intercoms. It depends on how your intercom is set up - hard wired to a phone, or programmed to dial a phone number. It seems it also depends on the capability/hardware of the voip provider.
I don't have answers for your other two questions, but, here's a post useful for those new to the forum - Search Tips, FAQs, Optimization, etc:

The approach I used was to get a new DID from voip.ms. I played with that for a day or so, and liked what I saw.
At that point I picked up a PAP2T, programmed it and voip.ms as I wanted, then, call forwarded my existing Bell # to the new DID. Lived with that solution for a month until I knew it was working fine. I also at this time disconnected the house wiring from Bell and plugged the PAP2T into the wall so that all other phones in the house would work.
Finally I started the process to port my original number from Bell to voip.ms. This last week I decided that since I had given no one the DID I had initially obtained from voip.ms that there was no point hanging on to it, and cancelled it.
