VoIP High Performance USB Phone -Fault?

  Nonagon 09:13 12 Aug 2005

I bought one of these from an Internet provider.
It arrived in seeming good order with cd (no paper manual or guarantee however).

I plugged it in to a usb port and ran the cd but I get no power in the phone handset although it is supposed to be usb powered. I hear clicks through the earpiece when my computer is booting up.Is there a way of switching these on or is it just defective?

Do you also have Skype or a similar service?

No,I just have the phone at the moment -I was under the impression one bought airtime from Skype and this enabled you to make VoIp calls.
Is this correct?
