Attention please:

"VoIP" is not a verb.

Thank you.

(Honestly I'd be happy if people didn't treat it as a single word, but I think that's a lost cause.)

VOIP VOIP VOIP

What about "Netflix" or "Google?"

Next thing you know you're going to tell me that different words are used differently!

Seriously, though, I don't hear anyone using it in the industry, except for Vonage commercials. It sounds like saying you're going to "SMTP someone". No, you're going to email them, or you're going to call them.

reminds me of a conversation on irc the other day...

<etc> i am in a 6 hour nortel voip training session. online, of course,
using voip.
<self> a webinar?
<self> oh, voip.
<meta> a voipinar
<self> sounds like a poisonous snake
<meta> or a race of aliens on star trek
<meta> 'captain, voipinar ship approaching!'
<self> shields up!
<self> mr spock, scan their ship for lifeforms! beam any hot female
aliens to my quarters immediately!
