I use Amivox. It allows me to use my landline, my mobile and my computer under the same account. Prices are extremely low but quality is as with conventional telephony. Here is an article that made me try the service and I am hooked to them since: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/iris-lee/cool-icelandic-phone-tech_1_b_1169372.html
I downloaded Skype to my Itouch, bought a set of headphones with mic ($8), got a skype credit of $10 and it’s been the greatest and less expensive way to keep in touch with family when I travel abroad. I use it from India and I talked without restrictions because the minutes are really cheap (unlike when you used a calling card), lately I used it in Brazil and for $10 I think that I talked more than 3 hours in total since we had an emergency and had to call to the US several times.
If you want to put in a little more work up front so that you dont have to deal with having an extra app; gingerbread integrates internet calls directly so you can forward your number to SIP and whenever you are connected to the internet (wifi or 3g) your phone will ring normally and outgoing calls will be made by IP.
Search for "SIP calls on android" there are many guides out there. Unlocked Iphones offer the same possibility.
