You need to look more for the providers than for the actual phone. The Netgear / skype phone bundle is nice but not necessarily the best option.

What country are you in? If it's the US (in general, not necessarily all area codes) you have a number of options. Vonage, Packet8,etc. all offer decent service

Is this for home or business use? Again some different providers for different market segments

How many phones total are you looking for?

I like their service, as low as $9 per month, can terminate the VoIP line (SIP based) into various hardphones, softphones, ATA's and IP PBX's. Can use them month to month as well.

Thanks Joel_Sisko, rpalmeira22
I am thinking of setting up a VOIP phone for my business. It’s just for myself in California. I'm trying to find an inexpensive and good solution to publish an 800 number for potential clients to call in my area. The broadband phone sounds good. Also if you have any suggestions on 1-800 I’d appreciate it

Thanks

Did some work in Washington not too long ago with a company called Voxeo. http://www.voxeo.com/products/voip-business-voip.jsp It wasn't absolutely spectacular but it was a good experience and would garner my reccomendation.

Joel makes a good suggestion there with an ATA. They're relatively inexpensive and as long as you get a large enough IP pipe you should be okay as far as service quality.
