We've been using VoIP for quite a few years now. Been using 2Talk since 
about 2007 or so. As long as you have a decent Internet connection you 
shouldn't have any issues. It's quite flexible as you mentioned.

You sound like you're only going to use it for outgoing calling which is 
a good way to get more comfortable with VoIP. You can port your existing 
landline number over if you wanted to go all the way.

There's a SIP client built into recent Android builds and third party 
clients for builds which don't have that.
