Clear reception; easy interface; UK version comes with a UK adaptor to fit landline sockets. Headphone jack works with iPhone earbuds btw. For some reason the phone sometimes doesn't ring for Skype calls. Could be my reception. When it's working fully, it's a decent product.

Skype phone poor out of the box - NO INSTRUCTIONS.

It does have 2 accounts but you can only be signed into one at a time.

The base-station interferes with my cordless headphones a constant blip noise.

The phone does not always sit on its base correctly, thus does not always charge.

The display is small, as is the keys. The signs on the Keys are very tiny and blue?
I had difficulty reading and operating keys on this phone.

I replaced Phone and LAN cable as they would not straighten, Very stiff cables.

The phone it-self has clear reception.

I accidentally bought the Additional Handset first time round, and then bought this after being helped by other Amazon buyers when it didn't work. This box comes with all the necessary cables, unlike the additional phone which only comes with a base and power lead. This phone has pathetic instructions (as does the additional handset) but I was able to connect it all up without the aid of a man, which is unusual for me. The manual can be found on line, however. Basically, you put a cable into the phone line on the modem type box that comes with it; a cable into the power slot and an ether type cable into the third slot, making sure to put the other ends into power, modem and phone line. I had trouble getting it to work at the beginning, as I had been sent two dud batteries (rechargeable) which did not take nor hold a charge. I contacted the online support (via e-mail) for the product and they were very helpful with suggestions as to what I was doing wrong. I have the handset set to "always ask" rather than just to 'Skype' or 'Landline' as the preferred setting for calling out, so that I can easily choose if I want to make a call using the landline or Skype, otherwise you have to choose by going through the menu, which is annoying. I have set different tones for incoming calls so I know if it is landline or Skype. The sound quality, for me, using both landline and Skype is excellent. I have set up the additional handset rather than sending it back, as it could be useful in a different part of the house. The round dial on the front has 4 functions (history, search,intercom,outgoing calls) which is handy if you don't want to run through the menu. As yet, I am unsure whether you can choose which options you can have on the front dial like you can do on mobiles for certain key functions.Read more ›

well a few days after writing a review about this equipment I have found myself changing my mind, instead of being mediocre it has now been relegated to one star, this is because the sender (Base) unit has decided not to work, after following every method I can find to reset and pair my two phones, every attempt I have made failed. I am a competent person in the electrical industry so I feel I have enough knowledge to set up a phone, two even! However, not this time, I have the message "Please register" "offline" and of course I tried, the base station won''t go into pairing mode so I'm assuming that it's the culprit, my internet is fine, so is Skype (which I use through a computer now) but the phones fail. The second phone's batteries have died also, this equipment is two months old!
The usual faults remain of course, the charger units are poor, its hard to tell whether they're actually charging or not (often not) as the phone wibbles about in the unit like the proverbial $&£% in a sock, the phones have a mind of their own, sometimes working well and at other times not so.
All in all, if there was an alternative i would buy it... come on guys there's a market out there!

Disappointed, RB.

well I've now had this product a while, and I can honestly say don't buy it.

The delivery and processing stuff was all fine, this is my second version of this product because the first product quality was so poor I had to instantaneously send it back.

The new version arrived and again the charging base is very poor quality but it does charge but wobbles around and is super cheap made.

Setting it up has been very easy but online support or additional manuals are not very helpful.

Once on calls the audio is much better but there is a range of issues making calls. If you have your computer skype on at the same time, the phone hangs the online programme, so either the phone or the laptop but not both. If a call comes through and your laptop is on, the phone can't pick it up. its like you need to switch all off in order to let the phone work which defeats the purpose... again no really customer support for the product not even on the manufacturer site.

The product is expensive, and looks attractive but turns up and is just badly made. the connections are the poorest quality of it, but even the handset is not brilliant. Generally the usage is intuitive but it hangs up at times when it ought to pick up.

My advice, but a cheaper/better product. a mix between lack of product support, and skype support to help the two things work together. I would send it back only I had already had a replacement and I think the vendor is entitled to be paid.
