Vonage = overpriced.

You don't say where you are so its hard to help you with suggestions, but if you are IN the US or Canada you can use Skype on your mobile device as well as your computer. It's free for inter-computer calls, of course, but they also offer a $35/year unlimited calling plan for US/Canada, and for another $30 a year you can even be assigned a US number so people who don't have anything to do with Skype can call you like they would call anyone else. It works on Wi-Fi and 3G.

That works out to about $6/month altogether -- pretty reasonable I'd say. The quality of the calls has been generally good, not perfect but no other system is either. Video calling on Skype is pretty "meh" compared to FaceTime, but FT is limited to Macs and iPhones (not that that's much of a limit really!).
