I do, all the time... works fine, even from here (Holland). I talk
to my son every day, at least an hour, and often we keep an 'open
call' like if it were a baby-phone, so I can hear him.

Setup was a nightmare, mostly because I got the Amazon package, and
their Amazon-based registration stuff failed. After that, however,
it worked fine, and has worked fine, since.

Small comment: although I got the package with the Cisco ATA186
VoIP box, and use that when I am in the U.S., I did ask some people
at Cisco (OK, so I work for em, agreed ;-) to decrypt my config
file, and configured those same settings into my CallManager
configuration here in Holland, because we are Cisco VoIP based
to begin with... this allows me to use my standard phone stuff
with that line.
