Vonage Vonage states you can take the service "with you" and plug the device you get with



Vonage states you can take the service "with you" and plug the device you get with the service into any broadband connection and send and receive calls normally. Great.... I get this.

But the problem is even if you stay at a hotel with broadband in your room or to a company with a digital pbx, in most cases you cannot use the equipment Vonage provides.

Why?

Because you still have to have an Analog phone to plug into the Vonage's device. What is an analog phone? Just for the sake of simplicity, it's the kind of phone you buy at the store to plug into your wall jack at home that works with your standard telephone service.

What's the big problem with this?

Most hotels or moderately sized companies don't use analog phones. They use digital ones. This means they aren't compatible with Vonage's device. So if you do want to make phone calls at these places via Vonage and be certain you have all the parts necessary to do so, you have to bring an Analog phone with you! Do you really want to bring the device, power supply, telephone cord and a phone with you just to make sure you can use Vonage service when you are travelling? Forget to bring one of these with you or leave one behind and you can't use the service. C'mon people leave behind cell phones, palm devices and laptops behind all the time in their haste to leave. But to have to carry around 4 other items with you. What are the chances these are going to be left behind?

Softphone software, if you travel with a laptop (true with most business travellers), lets you leave all the equipment behind. All you have to do is plug your laptop in the broadband connection, plug in headphones (recommended) with a mic to your laptop or a mic and use the laptop speakers (not recommended because of feedback) and you are all set.

This option is available, but here are the conditions set by Vonage:

* $9.99 a month
* You only get 500 minutes of softphone usage a month. It is not part of the unlimited package. This is a completely separate package.
* You pay 3.4 cents a minute after your intial 500 minutes
* Your softphone number is different than your main/initial Vonage number

Does anyone else have a problem with this? I must be crazy.

I am definitely ranting.

Would like to hear other opinions for or against this.

Using Softphone with standard account?


Is there a way to use the soft phone with your main phone number? I would like to
I agree, but that's the only softphone option they offer at this time.
If they dont offer it there has to be a way to get it done anyway. seems to me that there
I agree, I want to use my home computer as just another phone in my home. I'm not interested
Well you could go old school and use a modem in your PC. I've got a headset connected
