Freetalk Connect•Me adapter

Hi,
I'm interested in how the adapter works. I tried looking for reviews and setup guides to no avail.

From my understanding, the adapter gives a regular phone the ability to be used on Skype. However I have a few questions regarding the adapter.

1. If you're only using a phone with a regular adapter, how do you dial your Skype contacts?

2. Will I still be able to connect my phone to a regular landline along with the adapter?

Hi,

 

1. You can configure your contacts as speed dials and dial them using preconfigured numbers, like *1, *2, *3

 

2. Yes the product will alow you to use your regular land line as well.

 

Hope it helps :happy:

Re: Freetalk Connect•Me adapter

Thanks!  This helps with my decision greatly.  

 

Would this be a better solution than the Dualphone RTX 3088?  The adapter is cheaper at around $60.  And I've read so many bad reviews here on the forum about the Dualphone.

Re: Freetalk Connect•Me adapter

In my personal opinion the adapter is a better option because it allows you to use your existing home phone. I was personally waiting for an ATA type of a product that does not require a computer for Skype calling for a long time. I have never used RTX so I can’t judge but I think this adapter is a more of a natural approach.

 

Let me know your calling experience whatever option you decide to take.

Re: Freetalk Connect•Me adapter

No problem, I'll let you know what happens. Just keep an eye on this thread.

I recently came into the possession of two VOIP3212 phones. I might just use them as a landline phone with the Freetalk Connect*Me adapter since I don't want to keep my computer on all the time.

Re: Freetalk Connect•Me adapter

I am looking into skype as my home phone.

 

1.) Does your home computer have to be on all the time if you utilize this adapter?:bigsmile:

 

2.) If I understand, a normal home phone will work with this adapter?

 

Thanks,

 

Dan

Re: Freetalk Connect•Me adapter

I can't say how the adapter works but I've recently purchased and started using the RTX Dualphone 3088. Personally, I think it works great and Skype and landline calls are providing good quality sound and connection. And the phone works without having to leave a computer on and whatnot.
