Awful. Don't waste your money.

Summary: This thing was a useless piece of junk. It was awful. I hope the newer skype phones work better than this thing... I cannot say how useless this thing was enough. It did NOT work at all, felt like crap, and was a total waste of money. It did not function properly (or how I expected it to) and it felt like such awful quality. Keyspan... what a let down.
Summary: If, like us, you have replaced a landline with Skype, you may be looking for a way to hear an incoming call around the house, so a mobile handset seems nice. Don't bother with this product. Its ring is just the Skype tone coming through the earpiece. So, unless you have your ear close to this device all the time, you won't hear incoming calls. And since the USB has to capture the computer's sound I/O you won't hear your computer either! We are returning ours....
Summary: when i ordered this phone i was afraid reading reviews but after my brother used this phone with mac os x version 10.5.8 he request 3 more phones..... he said this phones are the best with good battery life, rechargeable batteries also accept non-rechargeables without problem all day he's making calls without any issue!
Summary: Sound quality for the most part is fair to good. Instruct your contact to turn off their camera when on a voice only call improves sound quality. The wireless phone does not always connect to the receiver unit when installed on a Mac (OSX), PC (XP,SP2) no problem. However on the PC the phone number, not the contact is displayed in the contact window. Inconvenient for lookups, remembering a lot of numbers can be troublesome.
Summary: Nice unit, but the manual is not too clear, and the instructions leave a lot to be desired, The phone operates well, even at a fair distance from the computer, but is quirky. I sometimes couldn't dial from anywhere but my computer screen, and the directions were not clear as to how to reach my contact list.
Summary: I have used the Keyspan Cordless phone in combination with Skype for well over a year. I travel throughout the world and can almost claim that I have used the phone and Skype in almost every continent. The Keyspan phone is compatible with the Mac-- not only does it ring but the phone will announce the name of the caller if they are listed in your Skype contact list. The wireless function works well in a hotel room, meaning you can be in bed and take the call.
Summary: The VP24a does not work at all on the most recent Mac 10.5.7 release (Intel processor) regardless of what version of Skype software is being used. I contacted Keyspan CS (actually Tripplet) and they responded that they will pass the issue to the manufacturer of the product. The phone will function on Motorola machines running 10.4.11. It worked initially with my 10.5 system but only as a remote headset.
Summary: Phone keys nonfunctional with Mac 10.5.5 OS. You can use only by dialing out of the computer. Customer service ugly to say the least. Their answer dont have drivers and they dont even know if they will make them. Also they dont answer Your emails. I will not buy anything from this company.
