Actually it could be the case that none of it goes to the government, especially if Ooma starts collecting taxes in addition to the existing fees. Right now it seems they are just eating the taxes.

I specifically did not assume that.

Sorry, then, I must have read this the wrong way.

I know, I tried it. it is not a "real" replacement for a home phone service like ooma is.
BTW, this cracks me up everytime:

MagicJack's outspoken founder Dan Borislow on NetTalk

"It's a piece of shit. It has static. The call quality is pathetic. There's no phone numbers available, and it's run by a bunch of fly-by-nights with no assets. They'll be bankrupt soon. We're a real company with the best network and best software."
