I've mentioned them before, because I use them, and would recommend them to
anyone.

The basic plan is $4 a month, and gets you free calling to all of Canada,
and voice mail (but not email notification of voicmail, which is free with
the $10 additional Premier). It can be operated by anyone who knows how to
use a phone handset. And they have 911 included. You can try them free for
60 days on a temporary number, then transfer your real phone number to them
if you like them for $40 (or free if you sign up for a 1 year Premier
account).

Initial cost is $130 or so retail, or $99 with referral.
