Since my husband travels a lot because of his job we decided to purchase a Skype plan las year. Not being too telephone internet savy at the time, we had no idea that even though we bought a Skype plan we would still need to use a 'special' phone to connect to our PC. This commenced the 'Search for the Perfect Skype Phone!'
Our search took us to Circuit City, a local electronics store and Best Buy. We decided to return to Circuit City to purchase the NexxTech VOIP Telephone because it wasn't as expensive as the other strores.
My husband has been using this phone for about a year now. He has been able to call me from places like Russia, Germany and Mexico. The sound quality is superb - you'd never known he was even out of the country!
The NexxTech VOIP Telephone is compatible with Skype, Net 2 Phone and many other VOIP service providers. It also works with instant messaging services. It is easy to connect to any PC or laptop provided it has a USB port. You can also launch Skype directly from the phone keypad by the press of a button!
If you make a lot of long distance calls and are looking at VOIP services, the NexxTech VOIP Telephone is the phone to have to give you privacy while talking - instead of everyone hearing your conversation because you are using speakers and a microphone.
