Summary: This device has served me very well over last few years, but now that I have upgraded to a new PC with Windows 7, I found out that CIT200 will not work. No new drivers are available and there is no normal way to contact Linksys tech support for the solution. My suggestion in 2010 - do not buy.
Summary: This phone is a piece of junk. The battery longevity is horrible meaning after a few months, it holds a charge for about half a day and then you have to charge it up again. The controls and features are worthless. The phone takes over your sound device so that if you're on your computer and you want to play back your messages from the PC or make a call out from a headset.. you have to switch your sound devices from Linksys to your PC sound drivers.
Summary: The CIT200 Cordless Interned Telephony Kit for Skype did not work, is not supported by Linksys, and in my opinion, should not be sold. Zero stars! I should have paid more attention to all the negative reviews out there but thought that with my excellent technical knowledge, I could get the product to work.
Summary: Linksys tried, you have to hand it to them. They even made the phone look like a regular phone. Skype, however, does NOT support wireless phones. Every single wireless phone I've tried for Skype has dropped the calls. EVERY single one of them! Every call, you're mid-sentence, and can't go further. The wireless function is simply not supported by Skype, and Linksys won't be able to support you for that very reason.
Summary: I purchased this phone about 6 months ago and it had all sorts of bugs and never quite worked right. I then got a new computer and had lost the installation CD so I downloaded the driver from their website and it never worked again, the driver from their website was buggy and crashed my system over and over again. Very frustrating as I wasted hours trying to get it to work. I finally gave in and purchased a different phone today.
Summary: I was happy when i purchased this unit. After a couple months the rechargable batteries were only holding a charge for 1 call, so i purchased new rechargable batteries, and they were not charging. SO I BOUGHT AN EXTERNAL CHARGER, and the phone was just discharging batteries so fast. 1 or 2 calls and it was done. FINALLY THE UNIT WOULD NOT CONNECT WITH THE BASE. SEARCHING AND SEARCHING...EVEN IF IT IS CONNECTED WITH THE BASE/CHARGER/RECEIVER it did not work.
Summary: I write this as I am on hold at Linkys for the umpteenth time. From day one, we could receive calls using Skype's static-ridden service. However, though I had a dial tone, I was unable to make a call. I called Linksys and they told me that for them to assist, I needed to pay $29.95 for extended router service (which I would need for them to get the phone working). After hours on the phone, they were unable to fix it.
Summary: Bought this phone several months ago, but could never get it to work. Thought maybe I just didn't know how to use the phone with Skype, but could make calls direct from my PC using Skype that connected o.k. Everytime I tried to make a call using the CIT200, I would just get a busy signal. Called Linksys tech support and tested everything for almost an hour.
Summary: I went through two phones, returned both to Amazon. The first phone did not charge fully. One 10 minute call and the battery would be dead. The second phone worked well for a week and then the sound quality took a nose dive and the microphone stopped working for outgoing calls. When they worked, I really liked this phone; maybe I just received two bad apples?
Summary: When I first configured this phone with my PC, it worked once. Then it developed 2 problems: 1. it could not connect to skype to download my skype contact list. 2. sometimes my PC would not boot when the USB connector for this phone was plugged into the PC. I think both problems were related to the fact that the box said it was using USB 1.0 which had several problems and was replaced by USB 2.0. I tried this phone with 2 different computers and got the same result.
