Iristel IP Mobility Service - Feedback Wanted!

Today I had the chance to speak to Samer Bishay, President and CEO, Iristel Inc. regarding the new Iristel IP Mobility Service.

Iristel tells me this is the first of its kind service in Canada.

In reviewing it, I am really impressed and think it might be useful for a lot of people who want to reduce their cell phone costs by "hopping" calls to WiFi or landline but also great for people who want to rationalize their Voicemail or who want to use multiple providers instead of having to bundle with one provider.

The following is snippets from a Iristel press release. I'd be curious about members feedback because this seems like a great service.

edited for brevity from Iristel Press Release
Iristel has announced the launch of Iristel IP Mobility, a new VoIP offering that gives users a single point of contact where they can be reached by unifying fixed lines (e.g. office and home) with their cellular service. Using Iristel IP Mobility, calls can be made and received from any location around the world on a dual mode WiFi-enabled (wireless fidelity) GSM (Global System for Mobile) mobile phone, without additional airtime, roaming fees or long distance charges.

Iristel IP Mobility is a subscriber-based service that also features Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC) technology, enabling users to seamlessly switch between their mobile carrier's network and fixed lines when moving from one location to another (e.g. car to office). All Iristel IP Mobility users, regardless of their cellular service provider, can benefit from the cost-cutting benefits of FMC technology.

More than "Single Number Reach"

Iristel IP Mobility enables subscribers to "hop" active calls between mobile phones and fixed lines with no call interruption. With its unified features, Iristel IP Mobility offers personal services - including one voicemail box - that can be easily managed across all of the subscriber's phone lines from a single device.

Iristel IP Mobility's universal features enable business users to remain productive and active in conference and group calls when out of the office by providing access to all the same telephone features users would have from their desk. It also provides VoIP roaming, enabling subscribers to access fixed line services when away from home or office through wireless VoIP.

How it Works

Setting up Iristel IP Mobility is an easy and hassle-free process for any subscriber. One phone number is provided to the subscriber with dual ringing of all fixed and mobile phones to that one number. Iristel IP Mobility offers subscribers the option to choose which phone they want to receive calls on. In addition, subscribers can seamlessly transfer calls from one phone to another or access universal features with the push of a button. If a subscriber does not want to be reached, Iristel IP Mobility is easily deactivated.

Pricing and Availability

Iristel IP Mobility service plans start at Cdn$12.00 per month with a one-time set-up fee. The new wireless service is available to cellular subscribers in Iristel's coverage areas across Canada, including cities in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Ontario, and Quebec.
