good find heat added

Looks like a good deal.....I will be joinging the Navy soon so i best tell my mum/girlfriend etc to buy one of these.

anyone know if this can be used with your SkypeIn number??

This is not a VOIP phone. Voip and Skype use different protocols. Skype is to be avoided in my opinion - it's relatively expensive, and it ties you in. Tell me if i'm wrong.

Either way, I've just ordered one as my home phone died yesterday. After I'd dropped it! Oops:oops:

I just ordered but may cancel if this requires some kind of subscription. The main reason I want this is that I work from home and have a 0844 number which currently reroutes to my SkypeIn number for free. When I'm out I reroute my skype to my mobile and this works out quite well but I'm paying 16ppm when I'm at home because i don't have a decent enough skype headset to receive skype calls clearly... I'm really hoping this will ease the process and make it a little cheaper for me to receive calls without needing to subscribe to another service.

It'd be nice is someone could clear up the issue of VoIP and skype for us... thanks

Skype is a type of VOIP. It is propreietry and gives very good quality and stability. It is free to skype-skype. It costs money to ring a skype-landline call, called a skypeout.

SIP is a standard type of VOIP. There are lots of VOIP-Landline competitors, so the cost of a "skypeout" is less.

Does this need to be plugged into a computer (USB port), or can it be plugged straight into a router?

This seems to be a link to the manual but doesn't get through my work's firewall if anyone could have a look for me:

Why does it have to be Skype?

Lots of routers can have phones plugged into them, and lots of VOIP phones and adapters exist for any number of VOIP services, many of which are a LOT cheaper and better than Skype

I bought one of these but returned it. it's not what I thought. It's a cordless USB skype handset that must be plugged into a computer running Windows XP or Vista. It doesn't work without the computer on (except as a regular phone handset) and it only works with Windows. Cold....

I would also love to get my hands on a voip phone without the hassle of having the computer on. If I need to have the USB plugged in and need the comp running then why need a phone, will make the call from the comp itself. Defninitely Skype voice quality has been the best I have experienced till date.:thumbsup:

I can see no difference between Skype and any number of instant messaging voice programs or VOIP softphones, especially so if using QoS or traffic shaping to preserve bandwith for VOIP while doing other things online. If I was bothered I could choose which codec to use, but it is so stable I have never even needed to!

I use VOIP not only for extreme cheapness, but precisely because sound quality IS far better than a landline phone which is variable at best, and the ease of using a bluetooth headset or speakerphone modes too.

I have a router which supports VOIP, but as it isn't located in a very handy location, I have never hooked it up to a phone a I prefer the sound quality I get from using the PC!

Buy a Linkysys PAP2 (ebay is your best bet - about £12), and subscribe (free) to sipgate.co.uk

I am using that combination, and the quality is fantastic. You get a free number in any area code you want, and can make free calls to other sipgate users (and to users on various other SIP networks). You can also add credit to make calls out to landlines, which includes very cheap international calls.

You just use a standard phone to plug into the PAP2, and plug the netowkr socket straight into your router.

You can also have a softphone on your laptop/pc etc that uses the same number, and rings at the same time if you are logged in.

It's great, especially when you get a few frriends going for it too, and you can all get free calls to each other.

BT Softphone or BT Broadband Talk offer good rates 2p per min International rates.

This is 30p cheaper (with delivery) and there is a £10 off £20 spend voucher on here:

PAP2 or SPA3102 is the way to go for the tech savvy.

BT do NOTHING I would remotely describe as cheap :-(

FREE is a much better rate, to UK and many international destinations and is quite possible; and rates less than you quote can be had to expensive destinations like India & Guadaloupe without even so much effort as having to use VOIP!

Have a good look at moneysavingexpert.com for a whole lot of information on calling cheap, both VOIP and conventional calling

Am i right in thinking that the phone that this phone at linksys is just a landline/skype phone, that is NOT compatiple with other VOIP services?

Personally, thats what gets me confused. Ideally, i would like a phone that can be used as landline/skype compatible/ AND also compatible with other VOIP providers - that would work wothout a PC.

Netgear SPH200D Dual-Mode Phone with Skype
Has anyone bought this one. looks good, no PC required, pricey though
