Just wondering if anyone can make recommendations for (1) "best" cordless telephone and (2) "best" cordless VOIP (voice over IP) telephone.

What about any recommendations or warnings about VOIP services? (Net2Phone, dialpad, etc.)

Here in Chicago, our Earthlink is already having to pay taxes on VOIP even though we aren't using it (thanks local telephone monopoly). Oddly enough, this protection or discouraging by the local phone company has pushed me to check into using what I'm already getting taxed on...
