Toktumi releases Line2 HD for the iPad

Toktumi, developer of the popular Line2 VoIP communications app for the iPhone and iPod touch has released a native iPad version of its app. Line2 HD brings voice calling and text messaging to the iPad over either a Wi-Fi or 3G data connection. Users can place and receive calls using the built-in speakerphone or connect a wired headset of Bluetooth device. As with the iPhone version users sign up for a Line2 account and are assigned their own phone number that acts a full-featured phone line to place and receive calls and text messages in the app. Calls can also be forwarded from the Line2 service to up to six other phone numbers when the iPad is out of data coverage. The app also provides caller ID support, handling of multiple calls including conference calling with up to 20 participants, visual voicemail, call waiting and call transfer features. Call history and text messages are logged and grouped in a single contact-orientation communications stream making it easy for users to get a snapshot view of communications with a given contact. Line2 HD is available from the App Store as a free download. A Line2 account is required to use the app, with a free 7 day trial available, after which a subscription is required starting at $10/month for a basic plan with unlimited calling in the U.S. and Canada.

Ok. So I have both the iPhone & ipad 2. I have a (218) - Minnesota, US number but need a (416) or (519) Ontario, Canada number both available through line2 & RingCentral.ca apps.

Has anyone tried either service? Let me know what you thnk. This would save so much money instead of having to go through Rogers or Bell Canada to set up a whole new phone.
