This is the phone I use the most Frown...
My regular phone

2nd ranked would be my home phone, followed by my HTC Desire. I use Skype on both PC & Android a bit & have played around with some other SIP apps without a lot of success - when the company VOIP gets sorted I'll be trying some other things...

I am currently using VFX VOIP with VTECH DECT Handsets (x2) with Router connected to UPS (in case of powercuts) for home and have an HTC Sensation (recently upgraded from LG Optimus One) from Telecom for my mobile. Have been a long time Skype user (I even used to buy credit until I lost it all because it expired after not making any Skype to landline calls within 6 months). I have used Tango, and Skype on my Android. If I win I would use Vonage TTC until the free credit runs out ;)

Hi - I use an iPhone 3GS & use it's lovely smooth screen as a reflector to signal various people in the adjacent suburbs... flash, flash......flash.....flash..... kind of tedious, but luckily Wellington is such a sunny place. I've also used Skype, Viber, 2Talk and a good-old 3G connection via Telecom XT...

Nokia 6310i

Yeah - its old, but it was an engagement present from the missus. So any time I look at another phone, its all guilt-trip and "remember when we got married"

So this is about the only way I'll get to supplement it.

She's on her...fifth phone since then.

I use my mobile (Xperia X1) to call m8s during the week (since I have the Best Mate addon) and also get free calls during weekends. I use MSN or Skype to make international video calls to friends sometimes, but that's about it.

As you can see, I am a cyclops so cannot rely on my pathetic eyesight and lack of depth perception.

For this reason call quality is very important to me. 

I use a VoIP phone (Yealink T26P) with 2talk for work, the above pictured Who-Are-We (pretty sure that's how it's pronounced) 2degrees mobile and have a landline that my Mum calls me on (probably time to ditch that).

I doubt I will try TimeToCall unless I win this competition. I am looking forward to the built-in SIP in the new Android mobiles which I think will be amazing.

The Old Panasonic
This is the phone I use most. I get a pretty good deal from Snap for calling. The only negative I can think of is that it is so cheap. This means that everyone has one. Therefore when I am at work or in town or someones house I always think my phone is ringing.

First time caller

I use an iPhone 4 for most of my calling needs. I use a wireless landline for local calls, and skype (on laptop or iphone) for video calls.
