Well I took the plunge and forked out for the Silent Circle Suite (text and phone). I am enjoying it so far. One of the big advantages for me is getting a Silent Phone number. Works exactly like Skype numbers, etc, but you can get it in Canada. I had my parents (half way across the world) call me and the quality is good (think Skype a few years back). Yes I know it is only secure between my phone and the Silent Circle Server but I believe that is probably enough to slow down 3 letter agencies. Anyone else here using Silent Circle?
