    What is the best Small Business VOIP system out there?

    Easy to configure

    Lowest cost possible that means no cisco shit with their overinflated garbage.

    You want cheap??? Look into "Asterisk". Open source VoIP PBX. You can use a cheap old machine laying around or even load DD-WRT on an old router and use that. Plenty of guides out there.

    All I need is three business phones and a cordless. I really don't want to pay 2 grand for that.

    Shit, Asterisk is exactly what you need. You can buy a few WiFi SIP handsets and be done. How many outgoing lines you need? All 4??? Or would a few trunks work???

    I have four lines already set-up close to my switch rack. The hard part is done is just need to find a system now.

    My work had VOIP before I downsized my office. For the life of me I can't remember what company it was, but it was nothing but problems. Now I just have plain old Vonage which works just fine for me, unless the power goes out.
