Summary: If you are trying to save money by using skype and are thinking about buying these phone, well don't, it is just as cheap to buy an Android Wifi enabled phone that will work with Skype and use it instead, you will get more bang for you buck, plus i can't see myself carrying this around with me...
Summary: I bought the phone under the impression that it was a fully customizable WiFi phone that I could use with a Gizmo5 (now Google Voice) account. This phone only works with Skype accounts and Skype credits. I was disappointed, but that's not why the phone only gets 3 stars.
Summary: For the faint of heart who leap into the world of Skype with this phone will do well to remember to get a top quality Wireless N type router. Although it will do well with the regular G routers, N is preferable.
Summary: I'm pretty tech and web savvy - and the phone DOES work....but absolutely not as a home phone replacement. Its a gadget, and be prepared to fiddle with it often. It also drops calls 50% of the time, even when I'm well within wifi range. It does work, but not well enough for $100.
Summary: BUYER BEWARE!! This phone is horrible. There is a 5 second delay between the call connecting on your end with the person on the other end. So, because of that many times the person on the other line will hang up. I tried two phones and called tech support.

Summary: The phone is just okay.. Not nearly as good as calling through the computer.. it drops calls all the time, even if you are standing next to the router. It also freezes all the time and has to be reset to work. With that said, for the price it's ok. Nothing to write home about, but it'll do.
Summary: I have been able to connect to a few hotspots, but whenever I dial a telephone number it comes up invalid. I have not been able, my own lack of ability, to actual make a call as of yet to truly rate this product.
Summary: I purchased this phone for use as a home phone. The phone is great! It has a bigger display then my old cell phone :) It is super easy to use and connects perfectly with my WiFi network. I have a quite secured WiFi network (Windows XP has trouble connecting, but this phone went right through.
