    Anyone use the Telephone App on their Mac?
    If so, what sip provider do you use/like/recommend/hate? I can make outbound calls using Google Voice just fine - good audio, no drops, and free. But they have no numbers available for inbound calling and probably won't.

    I want a low cost provider, but it doesn't have to be free. Just reliable. Don't need international calling - just U.S.

    Thanks.

    I use Google voice for outbound and inbound free calling. They assigned a number to me the day I registered. No inbound numbers in your area?

    Nope. There are a few in various towns in the state, but all would be long distance for anybody I know. Apparently it is a major problem. I see complaints on the forums about "Why are there no inbound numbers for the entire state of California!" and so forth. There are none for my zip code or any ZC for fifty miles around, and about 25 for my entire area code.

    Shame, since the Google outbound calling is solid and has great audio.

    So, to get full phone access, I have to find another SIP provider. The one that everyone recommends doesn't support Lion. Go figure that.
