Just got an e-mail from the folks at Stanaphone.com and will quote here:
"I would like to thank Geekzone for the support that you, guys, provided to our product throughout the year.
It has been a little over a year since StanaPhone.com went live with no added features. Now, after only one year in business, it added several features that made it a very distinct product in the world of VoIP.
StanaPhone now is still the only service that gives its users a free NY based DIDs, free voicemail via email, incoming fax via email, a pay-as-you go plan, free conference server for 5 participants, free incoming calls, free StanaPhone to StanaPhone calls. It is now supporting G 729 codec that results in a dramatic sound improvement."
Nice! When Stanaphone came out last year I jumped to try it - after all it was one of the few services that offered free minutes for incoming and outgoing calls (VoIP to POTS). And it also worked well on Windows Mobile Pocket PC (check our original review). It was nice showing to a couple of people on a cafe how they could call from their mobile phones and I was receiving the call on my HP iPAQ h4150!
Things changed since then, and the company has a much better website, offering more services, including conference and fax. I think it's an interesting competitor for the likes of Vonage and Skype.
