Is this a VOIP service ?

Is it going to get to the point where one can dial into it using a telephone
'number' ?

It is quite hard to miss if you use Yahoo Messenger!

Try
http://www.bt.com/btcommunicator/index.jsp
or
http://uk.docs.yahoo.com/btc.html

You can make calls from your PC and have them billed to your BT account.
Calls to some destinations are not charged at all. If you pay for
internet call waiting then you can also use it to receive
calls that were made to your BT line.

It uses standard SIP via an outbound proxy. Outgoing calls work just fine
and appear on your BT bill. I have it working fine with Asterisk 1.2, but
you do need to trace the traffic using Ethereal to get your outbound proxy
account name which has a few extra characters on your SIP user name.

No inbound though (unless you pay for Internet Call Waiting) and I have not
tried this so don't know if it's normal SIP or not.

It doesn't show on the contacts window, which is the only part of YM I
ever see..!
