Works well, very well for a first generation phone
on 22 December 2006
Normally the first generation of a product is a disappointment, but the 3088 is not.
The phone is a nice enough phone if you are used to DECT cordless handsets, installation is a doddle, just plug the ethernet cable into your broadband connection (you will need some sort of router if you don't already have one, and want to use your computer at the same time).
It logs onto Skype, you see your contacts and away you go. There's even a voucher for 30 minutes of Skype out calls so you can call landlines as well.
Skype are running a promotion at the moment that gives you six months of free calls to UK landlines if you buy £10 of Skype credit, so that's pretty good.
I have a SkypeIn number, so this phone now is my central London office! - voicemail works just fine as well when I can't get to the phone (or don't want to).
All in all, a great little handset, no major quirks, nice colour LCD display, and it will work on your landline like a normal cordless telephone as well.
