Who has used or know of Voxer.com and the #walkie-talkie service?
Is it safe, secure, good support?
I know it isn't foss, so, are there any #foss alternatives?
Thank you.

I've done some research but I #trust your opinions over those in other areas of the internet.

"We have to point out that if devices are unsafe, it is a legal obligation to permit us to make them safer. If you sell an ... unsafe automobile, and you attempt to prevent people from modifying those devices to make them safer, if you're out actually there actively interfering with attempts to make them safer, then when people get hurt you should be liable."
