you can install freewitch on a raspberrypi use the stable release as
although the latest version builds, it does not run (at least not for me)


you then have an opening into the world of voip - there are many things taht
could be done eg


apart from the obvious - using a softphone or buying a hardware voip handset.

Freeswitch takes several hours to build on the pi, there are asterisk
packages in raspbian so that would be an alternative. Don't bother with
sipwitch though, which is, to be charitable, a work in progress (it chewed 98%
of cpu while doing nothing for me) and is poorly documented.
