Works well....with a bit of quircks

Martha M., Newegg
4 January 2008
  • Summary: I bought this for my parents who use Skype a lot. I had to run the install twice as the first time it would not complete the Bluetooth adapter install, but that was pretty minor
  • Pros: Works as advertised, rebate, decent range, good value for the price paid
  • Cons: Power button doesn't always work on the first try, wonky install process

  • Summary: Overall, making calls and managing the contact list is great. Right on the money with bluetooth...
  • Pros: Clear and works as stated. Setup is straight forward.
  • Cons: Like stated below, its no high end pricey phone. It feels, and look cheap. Included skype plug-in software does not work with other BT dongles.

LCD Screen problem

Russell F., Newegg
1 August 2006
  • Summary: Would much rather pay more and not have hassle. Gladly pay for quality. Not sure this is it. Will have to wait some more.
  • Pros: Can't say yet It came with the LCD screen non functioning.
  • Cons: Several calls to Trendnet finally got an intelegent tech! They sent me an RMA to send to NewEgg. Waiting to see if NewEgg honors the Manufacturs RMA as they Trendnet wants.

Can't beat it for the price!

John C., Newegg
20 July 2006
  • Summary: Very easy to travel with - I just put the phone and dongle in an inside pocket in my laptop case and I'm all set! Good sound with just a bit of lag (no annoying echo). This isn't a $xxx phone, so don't expect it to perform like one or have the full-on functions of one that expensive.
  • Pros: Easy to set up - very handy for traveling - good range and sound quality.
  • Cons: Can take a few minutes to sync up with Skype

My phone came broken

Chu L., Newegg
21 June 2006
  • Summary: I wanted to return the product but newegg does not accept return for this broken phone. Have to fix it thru Trendnet. I suggest Linksys CIT200 if really want to get a decent skype phone
  • Pros: This phone is able to connect to skype relatively easy, other than that.......there are no pros
  • Cons: My phone came with a screen broken, could not read anything from the screen, however it does connect to the skype via bluetooth. The range of the product is not very good. Not as claimed 300ft, it is like 30ft.

Handy with an easy setup, but a bit sparse on features

Joshua S., Newegg

  • Summary: Overall, a decent device. Extremely handy way to use Skype! The Cons are not serious defects, and probably could be addressed in firmware updates. Either way, the phone works quite well, and interfaced with Skype seamlessly.
  • Pros: *Works with existing bluetooth connection (or just plug in the included USB dongle to create one) *Does not require a powered USB hub to use or charge *Works perfectly with USB 1.1 or 2.0 *Decent range *Long battery life *Excellent sound quality *Accepts headset (with a standard cell phone headse...
  • Cons: *No ability to add/edit contacts from phone *Can't access voicemail directly from phone *Only has 4 "cutesie" polyphonic ringtones - and no plain old phone ring sound *Can't change ringtone volume *Menus are a bit flaky *Brick-like, plus feels a bit flimsy
