The Dualphone 4088 is a combined Skype/DECT phone which connects directly to your broadband Router and telephone sockets.

The 4088 has superior HD Audio sound quality and uses DECT cordless technology to allow a handset to achieve a range of up to 300 metres outside or up to 50m indoors from the base station.

The built in speaker allows handsfree conversation and the facility to use as a mini conference phone for work and family alike.

It is easy to install, simple to use and with over the air updates the 4088 will always be a great way to save money with free Internet telephony via Skype to other Skype users. The popular Skype user interface and the attractive large colour LCD display gives you tomorrow's telephone today and for the future.

Phone is fine - menu system is easy to use - and easy to setup. It is certainly much better than the the RTX 3088 phone. Both my 3088 phones died after about 18 months - there seems to be a known speaker problem - no fix.

So I upgraded to the 4088 phone - BE WARNED - you need to buy both the phone and the base station. A 4088 phone is NOT compatible with a 3088 base station.

Call quality, reliability all seems fine at the moment - Jan 2013. If there are issues or problems I will update this review.

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless piece of electronics 2 Jun 2013
By Rob Rob
Colour Name:Black
We used to have a RTX 3088 for a few years that worked well. This 4088 supposedly worked with multiple Skype accounts, so we decided to upgrade.

From the start the 4088 has been a useless piece of hardware. The sound quality is awful. The caller ID does not work for landlines. You need multiple handsets to use multiple Skype accounts. It cannot handle UK area codes with more that three digits.

And in the past couple of months, it gets confused and cannot tell whether the batteries are charged. It decides there is no battery power and just shuts off. It's become useless. I've not had it for six months, but get no support from the manufacturer.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings 17 Jan 2013
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
Review covers the RTX Dualphone 4088 system - this purchase was an additional handset.

I have used the RTX Dualphone 3088 for a couple of years and decided to upgrade to be able to use 2 Skype accounts on the same system. This works very well but landlines calls are completely impossible due to a severe echo in the earpiece of the handsets. Sound quality on Skype calls is very good so if that is all you need I would highly recommend the 4088. If you wish to make landline calls my recommendation is to buy something else. Will be returning this if the problem cannot be fixed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Superb For Skype 24 July 2013
Colour Name:Black
I use this wholly as a Skype phone. The sound quality is excellent and it is a vast improvement over earlier skype handsets I have had. I can't vouch for its functionality using multiple Skype accounts but it works well with your own skype out (skype number).

Without the need to turn on your pc this connects to your internet with a ethernet cable and the range on the handset is very good around the house and garden. The handset itself rings and has a flashing light if messages are left on your skype answer phone service.

I'm getting a second handset.

If you think you can do away with a landline this phone is certainly one to have a go with.

Coupled with a mobile you can cover all sorts of scenarios and get great prices on call costs.

Would not connect to base station - useless out of the box. Search the internet for this fault before you buy, it is a very common fault that is not being fixed. Phone returned to Amazon for refund

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Product 8 April 2014
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
Pros:

The phone is easy to install, looks solid and has an auto-update function for the firmware which I particularly like.
I like the idea that you can connect more than one unit to the base which I did already and also you can use the handsets to call between themselves.

Cons:

None
