Hung up on your cell phone? Some think VoIP could be the future of telephone communication.

According to a recent Yankee Group report, more than 5 percent of Americans already use VoIP as their primary home phone. And for you Apple lovers, VoIP has become available for the phone-contract-free iPod Touch, making it functionally as much a phone as the regular iPhone, according to Portfolio.com.
