£14.97 in pcworld bought one yest. Great phone bargain for the price.
#3
Same in Currys.
#4
Note that by buying this you are locked into a proprietary network - you can only talk to other people on Microsoft Windows Live Messenger.
#5
Guess they are 'Windows only' :-(
#6
And it looks like you have to leave your PC steaming away all day in order to be able to make internet calls - the electricity used will probably cost more than the amount you save!
#7
how does it connect to internet ?

approx a penny an hour if you turn the monitor off? yep, in fairness, some free landline calls are sort of cheaper, but still represents a saving for most people
#9
You can use it like any other cordless phone, if you want to use the windows live bit you need to have your computer on and it plugged in with the usb connection. Makes a nice home phone not got round to using the windows live bit yet.
#10
Dwarfs any attempts to conserve energy by not leaving things unnecessarily switched on though.
#11
i got the skype on, connects a hub type thing to the router, and cordless around the house

i'm not sure if this one works the same, i.e. if you can just connect the hub to the router, or whether it's usb

i've saved loads from it, especially when i bought the same skype phone for relatives abroad

heck of a lot more expensive though...:oops:
#12
Yes - because this one does indeed need to be plugged into a (Windows) computer, as you'd expect from a Microsoft-sponsored product.
#13
Is it true you cant use both regular phone and voip at the same time? You have to unplug and replug it?

the amount of electricty used a different computers varies massively. So it's hard to put a figure to the cost.

Personally my computer is on all the time anyway so it makes no difference to me.
#16
can i plug this into my 2wire hub on bt ?????
#17
It also has two chargers one for the phone and one for the USB VOIP box, making it even worse on electricity.

Using a corded phone needed no external power. With this phone making VOIP calls would need four things plugged in. Two for the phone, one for PC and probably another for a router, and you may have the monitor on too.... Could easily be using over 300W versus basically 0W for a corded phone.
#18
what a shame, would have liked two to replace my normal handsets so that I could VOIP, but dont want to be limited to messenger, wanted SKYPE, and I havent found those as cheaply
#19
Not compatible with skype
#20
Of course not - why do you think it's so cheap? It's a tool to get more people using MSN Messenger. But Skype's just as annoying in its proprietary nature. Remember the days when mobile phones didn't have cross-network minutes allowances? This is the state of the market in VoIP at the moment.
#21
Still haven't tested out the MSN feature on mine, but as far as DECT phones go this is pretty good, especially considering the price! Call quality is fine and the battery lasts for ages, only problem I can think of is that it needs two power sockets, one for the MSN base unit and one for the charger for the handset. Still recommended if you're after a cheap home phone
#22
can you run it without plugging in the msn base unit if you just want it as a DECT?
#23
I have one of these. they're rubbish
#24
don't buy it ben

#30
olololol....arguing over a phone. <_<

Arther thinks talking in the third person is teh silleh. >_<
#31
I wonder why these are so cheap? It doesn't look like they've been superceded, and the press release announcing them was only 2 years ago.
#32
Warning!!!!! MSN have blocked new sign ups to their calling plans, thus the phones can only be used to call other MSN users!!!

I have one of these, got it from eBuyer for around the same price months ago. There is a two phone version as well, but never found it anywhere at a good price.

I use an "Intelliplug" which I got from Amazon, so that when you turn the computer off, it shuts the other 7 plugs down as well... So solves some of the power concerns.

I have a normal cordless phone aswell in the house, so when not by the computer, don't really need that one to ring anyway...

You can make calls via the MSN thing, but it's more a gadgetty gimick, I've used it once, and the call quality wasn't great, but that's because of the person the other side using mic/speakers on their laptop...

It has a handy sync feature though, so will copy the names/numbers from your MSN contact list, allowing you to use them on the normal phone side....

For it's price, you're not going to get something as good, even without a VOIP function. The closest I found was something like Binofone from Argos, had them before and will never go back!!! This Philips model isn't Philips best handywork, but it's a lot more sturdy then other cheap brands!!!

Yes you can bought one tonight in PCWorld can't wait for Sendit to send me one, The Philips VOIP 433 handset is GAP Compatible (Something Philips fails to mention properly anywhere) so you can add it to an existing DECT base station and use only the power supply for the handset and not have to use the MSN Base unit and additional power supply it uses.

I have five existing Panasonic phones (Live in a big house :) ), One set as a Base Station. I then added/paired the Philips VOIP 433 handset to my Panasonic Base Station and Philips VOIP 433 handset is working fine.

My MSN Base unit will be staying in it's box never to be used.

I'm sure this would be an excellent deal if it could be hacked and then used to access other voip networks.

Personally, we've never looked back after sourcing a Vonage Linksys PAP2 phone adapter in the USA which I then hacked and programmed with voipcheap. :thumbsup:

I bought one from Sendit on the Friday afternoon and it arrived the next day. Everything works perfectly. Call quality is good enough, it even accepts an MSN call even if you're using the BT line at the time. For under £18 its a bargain. Colour screen, poly ringtones, good battery life too. Yes you can only use it on MSN, but its ONLY £18!! How many DECT/VOIP handsets have you seen at this price? :thumbsup:
