I was checking out Twinkle from Live CD and it looks like a useful program .
But would also need a SIP provider.
Any recommendations for a SIP provider ?

I read that people have problems with Ekiga and it takes some time/knowledge to configure it. Twinkle, on the other hand, appears simpler, is geared to Linux users, and besides, is already installed on Live-CD 9.4 .

Actually Twinkle is working fine. I purchased a card from Diamondcard VOIP service and the cheap calls are going through very well.

Unfortunately Diamondcard registers your home phone number and they call you for 'verification', prior to letting you make calls. Normally that is no problem but if one wants some anonymity it is probably better to look for alternatives.

Hope that somebody can make a suggestion for alternatives ...

You missunderstand me.

"Ekiga.net" is a SIP provider. You can register a free SIP account without strong identity verification here: https://www.ekiga.net/index.php?page=register

You can use the SIP account with Twinkle in the live-cd.
