Suggestions for a VoIP provider?

We have Fonality Trixbox PBX locally, but multiple times a week, for about an hour, it just "freaks out" and randomly drops the phones, reregistered, drops the phone.

Been working with Fonality support, they don't have a clue, blame our network, but we see no evidence of any problem with the network.

So we're ready to move on...  Suggestions?  We have a bunch of Polycom IP560 phones we'd like to keep and use with the new service...  That's about the only requirement.

+Jeff Earls this really smells like the same thing I was fighting. I apologize in advance, but for anyone following us, the basics of a Voip provider to server solution in registering the trunks. If those trunks drop, no inbound or outbound calls are possible. Station to station is not effected, as that traffic is all in-house.  The registration traffic (at least with my provider) is a few UDP packets every 30 seconds or so.  
The Sonic's have a global setting called Default UDP Connection Timeout, and the is 30 seconds. If you don't override that, your Sonic may drop the registration, as the UDP timeout is reached before the regular 30 second heartbeat.

Most folks in my circles recommend setting that to 180 seconds. (Firewall Settings-> Advanced -> Default UDP...")

There is also a similar setting in the Firewall-> Access Rules > (LAN>WAN)---Advanced Tab.  Set it to 180 also.

For us, this would work for a while, but only until the Sonic would reset the default, then we'd jump through it all over again.  It may have been a bug, it may have been our hardware, but I fixed all the VOIP problems, and some basic streaming (UDP) issues when I tossed Sonicwall.  Since they were bought out by Dell, the performance and support has just not been there.  Our Watchguard's don't suffer from this.

I don't care where they put it at this point, but I'd like to view a history of my plus ones!
+1 if you think it'd be great to have a Google+ folder in the files app.

I would love to have every photo and video quickly and easily sharable every time I access my file picker. To have every photo backed up from my phone instantly in my File picker would be a wonderful experience.

A Chromebook would really feel like a fully integrated Google product with this feature.

Yeah, I think it'd be great to be able to go back through a list of everything I hit +1 on, would make it kind of like bookmarking a webpage.
