  • 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...

Buyer beware: this will ONLY work with Skype

Adam, Amazon
1 December 2010
  • 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.

Belkin Skype Phone Just OK

Robert J. Carlson "RJC", Amazon
20 October 2010
  • Summary: Delivered in good shape. Phone is very small as is the color display. The sequential logic of navigating is somewhat convoluted partially due to the limited real estate in the display.

It's good enough and it works

R. Perez, Amazon
27 December 2008
  • Summary: One thing everyone who is buying this kind of product should be aware of is that the quality is entirely dependent on two things: (1) WiFi strength and reliability (2) ISP Service - Bandwidth / Reliability If both the WiFi and Internet service are reliable and provide sufficient bandwidth the voice...

If you like new gadgets, then it's for you, but pay attention to reviews.

  • Summary: a) It works without a computer, there's no need to transfer contacts, no computer config, no software to install, no usb/network cable or base station required. b) It's ready to call as long as you have access to either a 802.11b or 802.11g WI-Fi network.

Good, not great

Jason S. Miller, Amazon
12 April 2007
  • Summary: Pros: I got rid of my home phone and a years worth of unlimited Skype calling only cost $14.99. Overall the phone works good most of the time. Just don't use it during a job interview or for proposing to your girlfriend because it may cut out, drop the call, add an echo, or die from low battery.

not a bad first generation Wi-Fi Skype phone

Living in Budapest "livinginhungary", Amazon
12 February 2007
  • Summary: I was mainly looking for a phone that would not require the use of any of my home computers. For this purpose the Belkin has performed almost flawlessly. I have tried it on several open wifi networks (most often at home and at my parents) and have had extremely clear phone conversations.

A looker, works at home wifi, but not in hotel or Starbucks

Luving it, Amazon
18 January 2007
  • Summary: Agree with the previous reviewer: it only works in the unsecured network. Tried and failed in hotel and Starbucks. So not as useful as I originally thought it would be. Pro: look and feel. Con: slow startup, data loading, can't be used outside my home so far. Un tested: battery and talk time.

Don't Plan On Using The Belkin Wi-Fi Phone On The Road

Richard V. Burckhardt "The Web Optimist", Amazon
10 January 2007
  • Summary: Being someone who uses Skype constantly for both business and personal long distance and PC-to-PC phone calls, I got a Belkin Wi-Fi Phone for Skype as a Christmas gift from a loved one who knows just how nerdy I am when it comes to new gadgets. I love them!
