Zoiper have lots of different versions and their web site is a good place to start.... http://www.zoiper.com/en/voip-softphone ... ad/zoiper3I'm still completely new to this so sorry for my newbie questions! I was wondering what kind of software is a necessity for VOIP, first all all. Secondly, I was wondering if you had to have a normal phone (like a house phone) or if it's common for people to use cell phones for this? Sorry, I'm still learning the ropes so I'm not quite sure how everything works yet.
You can always buy a VoIP adapter or IP phone later on. Next, you will want to start making some calls. There are plenty of PAYG VoIP providers around and you get started with a small credit via PayPal. You may even find some that let you try their service for free.
If you want a phone number so that people can call you, then you can either start with a new number or transfer an existing phone number that you own. Once everything is setup and working, you and your family will be able to both make and receive calls from a phone at home and your smart phones.
