I had to have MMS ("MMSing" pictures to email doesnt really work in real life) and so I chose this option. I have never used more than 50 extra minutes over my 100 minutes, so my bill is never greater than $35 (plus whatever voip.ms calls I make at 1 cent per minute)
Awesome to hear! I did this setup too (minus vonage), mostly to simply my life as I could not port my main number to Google Voice. Most months I use <100 minutes. That is why I have VOIP.MS as well, for when I do need more then 100 minutes I can do it cheap and reliable. I think I put $25 in VOIP.MS last August and still have $15-20 available. So basically ~$1-2/month extra fees from VOIP.MS.
