If you have access to Time Warner cable services, get the VoIP phone. Roadrunner is NOT REQUIRED. its $39.99/month for unlimited local and long distance. you can call regular phones and VoIp phones. It sounds pretty much like a regular phone. You will also get a battery for your VoIP modem for when the power goes out, you get like 1 hour talk time. and like 5 hours stand by.
