I think the cheapest solution would be using Free World Dialup (http://www.pulver.com/fwd/)

Copied from the site:

FWD is the largest open network service provider for person-to-person, advanced, real-time IP communications.

FWD allows you to make free phone calls using any broadband connection using devices that follow Internet standards. This can be a 'regular' telephone connected to a packetizer, an IP Phone or any number of free soft-phones (software for your PC or PDA).

They give you free phone number for each device and unlimited calling between them.

Sounds like you have the endpoint devices and need a service ....the cheapest ongoing way might be to configure an old pc to run Asterisk (a free VOIP PBX..voicemail autoattendant call transfer, hold, etc) and then get one of the compatible providers to provide a single IAX or SIP trunk (like a Vonage line, but you could share one trunk between the two IP Phones instead of an account per phone).
It would also give you free connection to other SIP and Asterisk users, and local room to room dialing.  Just Google Asterisk PBX for more info.
