Vonage Donna, There are a lot of varying opinions about what phones work best with




Donna,

There are a lot of varying opinions about what phones work best with Vonage.

If you use a wireless router, which I think you do not, then some would say not to get a 2.4 ghz cordless phone, because that is the same frequency used by the wireless access point. Also, microwave ovens can interfere with 2.4 ghz signals. I think a 2.4 ghz phone would be fine - perhaps great - for you. I use a couple with my Vonage (even with a wireless access point) and get crystal clear calls.

The 5.4 ghz cordless phones are usually more expensive than the 2.4 ghz phones and presumably avoid conflicts with in the 2.4 ghz range. Actually, they reduce the potential conflicts, but it is a myth that they eliminate it. The 5.4 ghz phones still use the 2.4 ghz band for one of the directions of communication, so they are really not much better than the 2.4 ghz ones in terms of potential interference. What does make them better is that they do have a wider range, and they are a little less susceptible to interference from microwave ovens. I have five 5.4 ghz handsets that I use with my regular landline phone service, and they work great - but I don't think they are any better than the 2.4 ghz phones I use with Vonage.

The cheapest cordless phones are generally the 900 mhz ones. In this case, they should work fine, because they are not in the range of wireless access frequencies or microwave frequencies. They do have a somewhat shorter range - but can probably reach every room in your house, unless you live in a big old castle.

The absolutely cheapest phones are the corded phones, which sell in the range of $10-$50, with an average one costing probably $20. They will work great with Vonage, but they are less portable. Even though they are not wireless, they can get some interference if you have the cables too close to power cords.

My advice is buy the phone that you think will meet your other needs best and will be easiest to use in terms of seeing the keys. Even the cheapest phones are pretty good these days.

The big-key cordless phone that seattlzoid found looks like a very good one to me - and it is about as cheap as you'll find anywhere. You wouldn't be taking much of a risk to try that one unless the shipping costs are high.

When all is said and done, choosing a telephone is a very personal choice. Two people can use the same phone with Vonage and disagree wildly about whether it is good or bad. All you can do is try one and see if you like it.
