Disadvantages?

We've been using it for a couple of months now. The quality matches that of a mobile--that is, not as good as circuit switched lines, but plenty good enough.

We like the pricing, and the free calling to the US and Canada. Since our daughter's boyfriend is in the UK for a few months, we added a virtual # in London, that allows him to call a local # and reach her without international charges. Works pretty good.

Lyn,
There have been problems with some of those systems not working properly with 911. There was an incident a week or so ago where someone got 911 in an other city with a same street name and it took some time to get help where it was need.

Lynn,
I have it as well, suites our needs. If powere goes out or cable you have no phone and must rely on cellular. It has calll fowrding to your cell if that occurs. Price is right though.

Been using Vonage for 8 months now. Been satisfied for the most part. Customer service is my big sore spot. Otherwise, the quality of service is not bad at all. I am in the telecom business and feel I have a discerning "ear" for telephone conversations. I feel it is better than long distance used to be in the 50's and 60's. I have experienced echo and delay, but it's not bad.
One feature I like is call forwarding or Similring. Allows you to forward calls to a cellphone or other phone and is controlled real time over their internet site. I usually don't use their voicemail and just let calls forward to my cellphone and its voicemail. Also, you can choose any available exchange and area code no matter where you are. so friends and relatives can call you locally and no LD charges for them. You can also take your interface box with you and plug into any HS ethernet connection and have your own Dial Tone. If campsites have ethernet, you are good to go!
Anyway, bottom line with me is it's well worth the money. VOIP is definately the wave of the future!
