Some other issues at PBXes are:
-The monthly price for premium
-They are picky about having multiple accounts. If your account becomes blocked/limited either going paid or making $50 donation is the only way to regain access to it. Getting in touch with them seems hard (there isn't much contact info)
-Their Premium-Only forums mean new users test driving the system on their Free Plan get no initial support

That said, VoXalot (Free or Premium) is ideal for VSP/Dial Plan configuration. It can then be used in conjuction with PBXes or MySipSwitch to make up for certain features...

I am in the process of testing something that should also make it possible to use your VoXalot dial plans in conjuction with ANI CallBack (...suspense grows )

Finally, this Voice-over-IP gateway for Google Talk, MSN and Yahoo Users caught my attention after mgoebel's post... It has been on Gtalk2Voip's site for a while and I haven't heard much about it. One thing that seems promising (which I need to test) is that the software runs on just about any JAVA capable phone. On the other hand GTalk2Voip will let you specify VoXalot as an outgoing provider (and may even let you receive--iffy about this-- your VoXalot calls via that software on non-Symbian phones that do not support VoIP registration or Fring otherwise)
The coolest thing about PBXes is support for real extensions - each can have independednt ATA registered to. This allows to build private network between friends or family members living all over the globe. If Voxalot offered such a thing (and callthrough, of course) there would be no reason to go any other service. Quiet honestly, I don't understand Voxalot strategy of limiting inherent PBX functionalities.

That would be useful - especially in conjunction with my comments over here :

If the VoxConnect API was opened up, it could allow normal Voxalot account holders to drive their own links/interfaces etc. Granted it's not a revenue stream for Voxalot (as they use their own VSPs routing etc) but I'd consider paying another $5 (for example) to have a "bolt on" for my account.

Yes, I know I could use WebCallback, or (which I do) but I'd really like some client apps (ala VoxFox) or desktop (trusted) links which I can just "click to call" my commonly used numbers etc, so my phone rings and connects me to them (and I don't have to login to a website).

This paradigm differs from the normal "click to call" as I'm not looking for customers to call me, I just want to use my credit & account in a simpler way.

(specifically I'm at home with a headset and no dialpad, using Office apps, not the web, and want to ring someone without picking up a phone - this would be highly useful!)
