You might want to take a look at zfone and zrtp.  zfone is a free software 
phone that originates zrtp, an encryption scheme about to be implemented into 
a number of other free softphones (ekiga, for instance).  


If you and your recipient have zfone (or a zrtp-enabled softphone) then it 
will automatically establish an encrypted, secure connection.  You don't get 
anonymity but you do get privacy.
