Voip 911 calls can be a problem. Here is a simple solution if your Voip phone cannot call 911
Voip uses your high speed internet access to make phone calls. Talking through your computer. Your computer, laptop may be hooked up to the internet almost anywhere. The Voip phone system may not be able to hook you up with your local 911. Skype is not set up to hook you up to your local 911 exchange. There have been reports of people not being able to get ahold of 911 with a regular phone hooked up to their computer. This could be dangerous.
If you are using a normal landline type of phone for Voip in your home put the 911 information on your handset.
Write the phone number of the local police department and the address of the phone. Tape this to the back of the handset. In an emergency if a visitor has to call for an ambulance that information on the handset will be really handy.

I pair my Voip phone from Skype with a prepaid phone from Net10 which charges 10 cents a minute all the time. I can talk all I want for $30 a year with Skype and communicate on the fly with my Net10 Prepaid Cell Phone. You can operate a Net10 phone for as little as $15 a month if you use it mainly for messages, not for chatting.
