Two year costs:
My Hub with Scout, new: $260. (NO taxes or charges per month).
Skype wifi phone (no calls in, no telephone number): $246.
Skype wifi phone with Skypein phone number: $279.
Phone company (forces me to by package for long distance); $720.
LOL. No brainer. Don't use phone company for long distance!
Best deal: my new ooma Hub with Scout. High initial cost though. Radioshack. Not on sale. Old inventory.
