Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: RTX DUALphone 4088 - SkypeTM and landline phone Black Brand New UK Version (Electronics)
Latest update. I've found a workaround so that the phone keeps ringing and you actually have enough time to pick up the call. TURN OFF VOICEMAIL - on the phone itself, not on Skype on your computer. There's no voicemail after that but at least you get enough time to answer the d*mn thing in the first place. It now rings and rings and rings until I answer it. hallelujah !

Amendment to my review below. The phone will only ring twice before going to voicemail. There is no point messing with your Skype client settings, the problem is with the phone software. RTX know about it, and have known about it for at least 2 years - the Skype forum is full of complaints. Unless you're as fast as Usain Bolt, the d*mn thing is USELESS. YOU MISS EVERY CALL and RTX don't seem to care.
So don't buy it and maybe they'll get round to fixing the problem.
A great product ruined by cr*p customer service

Bought this to replace our VOIP Voice Uconnect USB adapter which allowed us to use our normal phones with Skype & landline. Unfortunately the old Uconnect adapter only works with Windows XP and is now totally unsupported and there's nothing comparable in the market.
So we bought one of these.
Set up - it worked straight out of the box. I just had to log in to my Skype account and everything worked just fine.
The menu is very intuitive, easy to use and call quality is astonishing.
We only use it as a Skype phone so can't comment on quality of landline calls.
Will be buying an extension handset.
