I have read in the Vonage website that if I have wireless internet
I can use the WiFi UT Starcom F1000. So can I keep the same phone number with that? How does it work?

you should be able to transfer your number to that device, just like you could transfer a number to a different adapter (i.e. rt31p2 to an rtp300). should be and getting tech support to do it of course are two different things.
it works over wifi, like the name implies. the same way most wireless internet works.

Thank you for the information. Is that the only device that I can use with a wireless internet?

I'd hold off on the Starcom...it definitely is a "first generation" device and has quite a few drawbacks, including that it won't work on most hotel networks which require authentication first and short battery life. I also am unsure as to if it supports encrypted networks. Depending on your application, it might be the right choice 'though. I usually just plug my Vonage adapter into my laptop's ethernet port and use WinXP's internet connection sharing to grab the signal from the laptop's wireless network card and pass it to my Vonage adapter. It works fine with the encrypted networks and also works with the hotel authentication screens. The Uniden TRU8866 phone is small enough to toss in my laptop bag if I really want to be cordless.


In the future, cordless IP phones will be the way to go and I'm sure we'll see quite a few new models come out over the next year.

Dustin:

There are other wireless devices but they are not supported by Vonage and can only be used at this time in conjunction with the optional softphone product (extra fee, limited use).

I tend to agree with most of VonageTPA's assessment of this product. It is probably most suitable for someone living in multi-unit housing with free WiFi. However, before going this route that person should be certain their wireless network will support Voip. That can be accomplished by running tests at http://testyourvoip.com. There are other ways of accomplishing this same task, but the F1000 gives you a certain amount of flexibility those other solutions lack.

VonageTPA:

This handset does support a limited number of profiles (4?) that allow you to preset WiFi settings including keys. So this device can work on encrypted networks (WEP 64/128 bit, WPA-PSK TKIP).

In addition the current spec sheet say "Scripting support for HTTP based Hotspot Login" which is something that UT Starcom has been working on for quite some time. I have yet to hear concretely if this functionality is working.

The newer F3000 appears to be a flip phone model. I have not heard when Vonage will be offering this phone. http://www.mobilemag.com/content/100/104/C5452/

That flip phone looks interesting... At some point I'll probably get a WiFi phone, as I love the concept, and I have installed WiFi networks at most of the places which I work, so this would be nice... 'though the Uniden Tru8866 phones are holding up well for this task, even at 500' distances.

I agree having got one...its rather disappointing. The phone itself is good and battery life is good....but there's just nowhere you can use it.

Most cafes/bars/hotels require you to login into the hotspot so you can't connect. That really limits the phone usage and viability.

I am sure it will be the way to go in the future.
