Does your mobile phone provide better quality than a typical webcam? I'll test some virtual webcam software for mobile.
The sun is indeed setting
As an update, about 3 p.m. this afternoon, SunRocket ceased taking any new customer accounts, either via the call center or online.

Who’s buying residential VoIP?
With all the Vonage patent news, exactly who are Vonage’s customers and what will they do if service is interrupted (which isn’t a likely scenario IMHO).
