I'm not sure there is, to be honest. I really ought to get round to
writing one.

You get a "line" for free, but the adapter (ATA) that connects your
phone to the voip is about 40.

I second the suggestion that you get it from Sipgate. There are better
and there are cheaper, but Sipgate is a good starting point and their
website will take you through the settings you need for your hardware.

And ignore the pillock who makes bad comments about Sipgate: he is deranged.
