Summary: Good points Love it, so convenient not having to go to the office or have the PC on. Different ring tone for BT and skype also can use BT line and skype at the same time - obviously different phones. Excellent Bad points None yet had it for two weeks and no problems at all. Other thoughts I didn't pay with a credit card but I needed to put a credit card number in to get my discount voucher so hoping this will get sorted - still waiting to hear from you.
Summary: I've spent money on VOIP phones and with VISTA bugging with them all the time decided to buy the Netgear. Plug in and use it - how easy? I'm impressed with it despite the dodgy ringtones. There aren't any alternatives yet unless you want to spend £100's. So if you want a phone that's permanently logged into skype regarless of computer being on this is the phone for you.
Summary: This phone works a treat for outbound and inbound skype calls. This phone saves me 75 quid a month on international calls. Clear call quality with no delay around the house, good battery life and easy to set up.
Summary: No trouble with the installation - approx 15 mins. Worked as expected with great clarity. Performed the firmware upgrade which failed the 1st time but performed the upgrade on the 2nd attenpt. The reviewer who said it looked and felt cheap, should perhaps buy the Rolls Royce model next time.
Summary: Just plug and play and it worked fine out of the box. The batteries were even already charged up. I have a (not much used) Skype account and it just loaded up all the contacts from the internet account. Looking up the charges, SkypeOut is 1.4p per min for landlines with a 3.3p connection fee (18866 and similar is a 5p connection fee and then free). SkypePro is probably better as there is no per minute fee for landlines.
Summary: I did a lot of research for my new Skype and Land Line Phone, having ordered from Amazon I new any problems they would sort if I needed, but why I should have worried is beyond me, this Netgear SPH200D Dual-Mode Cordless Phone with Skype is Brilliant. A absolute ease to set up plug and play (as long as you have your Skype account set up already on line or your computer) No hassle took me 5 minutes at most and that was routing the cables, sound is good on handset and...
Summary: I was looking for a skype dual phone that would also offer speakerphone, have a headset jack and allow for chat online (typing). Panasonic did not offer this last feature and the other brands did not offer headset jacks at a decent price. This phone has it all and is affordable too! It really is plug in and play - another triumph. Though netgear will not endorse any headsets for the headset jack - the one I have (no brand of significance) works perfectly.
Summary: An excellent well made phone, clear simple instructions and easily set up. It worked perfectly as soon as I'd charged the batteries. You simply plug one cable into a modem router and the second into the land line. Set up was automatic. Clear reception via either the land line or via Skype. (I already had a Skype account set up and it was easy to set up the same account on the phone).
Summary: Set up is a Breeze. Little colour screen is a joy. Call quality for Skype is very good. You must set up you Skype account with a PC but once it is up a running, this device means your PC is not needed for Skype. On the whole, great.
