Alternative phone numbers

Since the NTIA decided to pull the lame move of nixing privacy for .US domain owners, like myself, I'm currently looking at secondary phone number providers to use for the phone number that my domains are registered under. There's no way I'm putting my home address and phone number out there for the world to see, so I've already got a PO box address for the domains. I've got my phone number masked currently, but it looks like I'll have to provide a valid one of those as well... again, I'm not putting my home number on there.

mamierock and tawnyleona seem to swear by, but their 30-day inactivity deactivation warning rubs me the wrong way. I guess that's what you get for a free service.

At the moment, I'm looking at jConnect and SkypeIn. Does anyone have any experience with either of those, and does anyone have any other suggestions as far as places to check out? I'd also be interested to see if anyone's played with Skype at all, since SkypeIn seems to be attached to it. From what I can see so far, I'm slightly favoring Skype, both because of price and ease of access.


[Update @ 9:25]
Trying out Skype and, at least for outgoing calls, it works quite well. Still debating their incoming call service... as cheap as it is, though, it should be a no-brainer.
