I am considering going to naked BB and switching to a VoIP solution.

The wife and i both have smartphones (SGS2 & ip4S) and what i was hoping to do was be able to use either phone to answer the VoIP line over wifi. This should be no problem if either of us are home but what happens if both our phones are active on the wifi network

Is this possible or will I run into problems?

Unfortunately it won't be possible without a PBX. You could look at running a small home Asterisk server e.g. PBX in a flash if you have some spare time?

I would have thought it would be possible with "Locate Me One Number" on 2talk

Thx for the quick reply, maybe a better option is something like a 2 line 2talk option and have the phone divert to second number (on 2nd phone) after "x" number of rings.

I was not aware of the Asterisk project must have a read up if for nothing else to my own curiosity!

I do it with 2talk. You use the "One Number" feature and use 09 12345678 for the primary and 09 12345678-1, -2 etc for subsequent phones. I think that VFX has something similar.

Not quite right.

With 2Talk you can have up to 5 devices registered at any one time.  If someone calls through, and both your mobiles are registered, both will ring at the same time.

That sounds like it will do exactly what i want it to, when someone rings in both phones ring and either the wife or I can answer the call from our respective phones. 

I'm not worried about being able to pas call from one phone to the other or anything crazy like that :P

Many thanks for all the replies, at this rate it looks like it could be a relatively simple solution, VF naked BB, 2Talk, Bria for Android & iphone and job done
