FREETALK Connect•Me Home Phone Adapter

By Shem Pennant,

It’s good to talk. And it’s great to talk for free. However the magic of VoIP (which lest we forget, has been with us for many many years now) still eludes some people. For many it’s a location thing. You use a phone as a phone, sat whereever you feel like (curled up on the sofa or even in the bath) and have a nice long natter. The PC (or at least the conventional desktop PC) is nowhere near as flexible. As with many great pieces of technology, the key to mass adoption is making things as simple to use as possible. Hence the introduction of the FREETALK Connect•Me Home Phone Adapter for Skype.

Skype-Connect-Me

The FREETALK Connect•Me Home Phone Adapter is designed to make it easier for consumers to enjoy Skype conversations with any of their Skype contacts, regardless of their device, including: computers (PC, Mac or Linux), iPhone, iPad, Android smartphones and even to fancy a Skype-enabled HDTV. Consumers can also receive Skype to Skype calls from other Skype users on their landline phone using the Connect•Me Home Phone Adapter.

So how is it to set up? I hate to describe things as idiotproof, but the colour coded plug and play setup makes getting things going pretty straightforward. You only need a PC or Mac for the initial set up (after which you don’t have to turn on a computer to connect to Skype) and helpfully all the cords and cables needed to connect to home phones and to the Internet are included in box.

In addition, The FREETALK Connect•Me Home Phone Adapter also enables regular landline calling – simply add a prefix ## for a Skype call or * for a regular landline conversation and you can of course tweak this to your preference.
