i wonder if someone uses the service and can tell me if i might get problems using Linux.
I call right now, every two weeks to germany and i do that with my cellphone for what i pay $3.99 in fee and $0.10 per minute.
Now if i see a service like vonage it will cost me $25 and includes international calling.
So i might not necessary save money, but i can talk all day pretty much.
I use a VoIP service, packet8. It has nothing to do with your computer.
With Vonage you should have a router that handles your phone. The same applies to most VoIP services.
The only one that I know of which depends on your computer or OS is Magic Jack.
Well thats good news.
I haven’t decieded so far but if i can save money that way and could have unlimited calls, it would be great.
Vonage writes unlimited international calling, but there is a limitation to the unlimited offer. Only 300 minutes per cycle for one ip. Now thats unlimited.
The voice quality depends on your internet connection. If you always have lagging then your voice connection will not sound very good. But if you have a good connection then there is very little difference between a regular land line and VoIP.
Occasionally my calls will go through but I can not hear anything. When this happens I have to reset my modem.
Ahah! Interesting! If no software is needed for setup, how is setup accomplished?
I have my modem/router plugged into a switch. Everything plugs into this switch, laptop, printer, desktop. Do you mean I can plug a phone into this switch and have voip? There must be some adapter of sort to convert voice to digital and tcp/ip. Do I need a static ip address?
