I bought the Dualphone at the end of march 2017.
As of june/july the system isn't working because Skype doens't support it anymore.
I looked it up and this discontinuation was annouced as of 2013 (!)
So it would have been nice of the supplier to have hinted this out and/or retracted the product from the market.
I wouldn't have bought it.
Apart from that one niggle, seems to work exactly the same as the 3088 did before Microsoft started 'playing' with the Skype that we all new and loved. Range is good and call quality excellent.
I bought the phones to find out if they were good enough to enable me to drop the landline when my one year’s line rental expires in a few months’ time. I am pleased to report that they are and I will do so. I have both Skype and landline currently set up with different ring tones and they both work well. Basically the phone is the small box that connects permanently by cable to your broadband router. The small box communicates with the handsets by wi-fi. Whatever you do on one handset, like entering contacts, making and receiving calls, gets recorded in the small box and becomes immediately available on all the other handsets. You need to keep the phones on the bases when not in use otherwise you soon get a low battery warning. They also have quite a bright, blue notification light that flashes if you’ve missed a call or received a message, etc. This is OK most of the time but not OK in the bedroom when occasionally, in the middle of the night, some unknown Skype user requests addition to your contacts. I’ve covered up the blue light on the phone in the bedroom.
Generally, I’m pleased with the phones, just wish they were a bit bigger in size with bigger screen and keys and that, on Skype, you could block unknown people from hassling you. However, it’s not so bad as the cold calls you get on the landline.
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.
The latest model is designed much better, the keys are a little larger, which makes dialing easier for me.
It was very easy to set up, probably took me about 5 minutes. using the phone without having to have my I Mac switched on is a bonus, because of the fact that the base station connects directly to you modem and of course, being able to use the Dual Phone as your normal land line phone and a Skype Phone is a bonus.
The only thing we found wrong, was the fact that the rechargeable batteries, you get with the phone are not the best quality, but, not a problem, we just replaced them with a better brand.
I would recommend the RTX Dual phone 4088.
I also checked if you can leave this handset signed in (like having skype running on your computer) to see how long call forwarding would take - and again it took 4 rings.
So if like me you use a Skype number for business then the only option for call forwarding to work properly is to leave Skype signed in on a computer. If however you want a Skype handset to use as an Internet phone and combined landline it does work well and it is a good product for the money.
If Skype manage to sort out the call forwarding time delay issue then I would happily buy this again to use as my main tool for accessing Skype.
