I do not want to appear a Black-Catter, but my son has just got a Skype Phone/Mouse. USB connected and Flips open for the phone. Reason - he keeps misplacing his portable Skype phone. I think it is by Sony.
I use a perfectly normal cordless phone, along with a SiP enabled router.
In conjunction with Gizmo, this gives a wider range of free calls than Skype, some really neat telephone facilities including some that Skype doesn't have, doesn't need a computer - and if you do use Gizmo via a computer there's no peer-to-peer software involved (unlike Skype).
And because SiP is an open-source, non-proprietary format, there is access into many other SiP systems.
Why use a "Skype" phone when you can use your ordinary phone with click here You only need to connect on the computer via your account, your phone rings, you pick it up, wait till the person answers and from then on it's just like making an ordinary call on your household phone.
I registered for viopCheap, same company, so I'm using up the credit I have, costs me 3p per call, unlimited time.
