Ah yeah, I wasn't stealing your thunder - I didn't see your second post.

I was looking at this phone earlier in the week but my circumstances changed and I didn't need a VOIP product after all.

Do let me know how it is though - I might pick one up as VOIP is gonna be the future..
[SIZE=2]i did think the first one was a good deal thens een amazon lol ffs but i think both are a good price so when one runs out there is always the other [/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]if you just want to use voip and dont want to have a pc on get a linksys PAP2-UV adapter [/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]comet did have them for £20 then you need to unlock them and use sip or a other voip phone place [/SIZE]
[SIZE=2] [/SIZE]
Don't think they are SKYPE compatible which is a shame
yup i seen on the other post and play have gone past the cancel point ffs packing the item it says ffs

ah well

also when i out both of the 2 deals i did not see the other post at all
thanks for showing me that you had posted that befor but i know now with the 2 posts you have put thanks rayman



also why take one off when you had put under that you had posted now my link to the other post goes no where ??

is it cos it was on twice or that you had put the deal on ??

so if you where going to take off the post why post in it ??


a question!

most VOIP phones are packaged with a service provider - for instance this phone is for use with windows messenger. does this mean that i cannot use this phone with another VOIP provider like skype, or poivy or vonage etc and that i can only use with windows messenger and thats it?

its looks like a lovely phone at a bargain of a price, id love to buy this VOIP phone and then decide myself the VOIP provider to be with.
MSN, Skype, Vonage, etc are all using different protocols. If you want phone with maximum 'provider portability' then look for one which is using SIP protocol. Or you can get ATA device, such as Linksys PAP2 or Zoom 5800 and use it with any standard phone.
I bought one of these handsets for use as a standard phone over the voip feature. We needed a cheap backlit phone and this one seemed to fit the bill, with the bonus of a colour screen.

For some reason when setting a ringtone for certain people in the phonebook or going through the audio settings, a third of the time, the audio would lock-up/fail. After this point the phone continues working normally except there is no audio from the key presses, incoming calls or when changing ringtone. The only way to rectify this was to restart the phone.

Also, since I had set custom tones for some numbers on the phonebook, when those numbers called, the phone would ring the standard tone for half a ring and then play around 3 seconds of the custom tone before it stopped ringing altogether. Only option was to avoid using different tones for callers and just stick to a standard tone for all callers like most phones.

Due to the failing of the audio and the occasional freezing of the device, I returned it. It may have been a duff unit but I wasn't prepared to try another handset out.
