I have this working. You just dial the extension you set up. All the
extensions start with "10" and then can be whatever you like after
that. So, I just dial "105" and the person with that extension set up
gets called. The restriction is that both you and the person you're
contacting have to be on the same VOIP.ms server.
Any way, I discovered that voip.ms says you aren't supposed to be
charged for voip.ms to voip.ms calls even if you use the external
phone number. (though, I haven't tested it out)
