Get ready, this is a long one, but I think it will be worth the read.
I also have mentioned that I was giving them a second chance. I thought I would share the experience of the second chance.
During my initial conversation, I was told that to get the price to the $25 that I wanted, they couldn't help me given the structure of their system. However, a few hours after my post, I received a quote that indicated the pricing could be had.
Here is the quote as I received it. (You may need to save rather than open... it is a .xls file)

Well, who'd thought getting a simple softphone for my computer would be such an adventure? I sure didn't. I was sure that it would be an easy process.
After my experience with Packet8.net (they still want a second chance... I'll let you know how that goes) and my experience with VoIP.com, I was getting a little frustrated.

I don't have to transfer and I don't have to worry about business phone needs. I have been with Packet8.net for three years now, so I thought that I should start looking there.
The experience started about a week ago.
