The prices of Skype-certified phones or other VoIP phones are expensive. This is one of the lower-priced phone you can get your hands on.

The convenient feature about this stand-alone wireless Skype phone is that you don't have to be tied to your computer to make calls. In fact I use it as my house phone for outgoing calls and it works just fine. The sound quality is more than okay as expected from internet calls.

Set up is straightforward. No need to read the manual as the screen will guide you sign in, if you already have a Skype account, or sign up, if you are new.

If you are an existing user, it just carries over all the contacts to the phone. Give it time to update from the internet and your contacts will appear. No need to type all over again.

However, if you are a new user I strongly suggest signing up and entering or importing your contact from your computer. That way you have your contacts from your address book or email account ready to be imported. If not, it's easier typing from a full keyboard. Once updated, this will also carry over to the phone.

Pros:

1. Free up your computer resources and electricity by using a stand-alone Skype phone.
2. Good design in a light-weight package loaded with user-friendly controls. Normal and advanced features are readily accessible on the phone menu. Just read thru the display and navigation will be straight-forward.
3. Relatively cheap compared to other Skype-certified wireless phones.

Cons:

1. Battery life is horrible. A few hours of use and it will need charging. If mobile phones can last more than a day of normal use, this should be able to as well. Linksys will need to investigate and release a firmware update on this issue.

The product description in January 2007 is inaccurate:

batery life in the standby mode is about 20 hours, not 60;

there is no hands free speakerphone;

if you use a standard plug-in headset, the microphone does not work (tested two units).

There is more:

the headset is very loud (you have to listen with the phone an inch away from your ear), but there is no volume adjustment;

the microphone has low sensitivity, so you find yourself yelling into it;

the clock resets itself when the power is turned off.

I returned mine.

For a phone that costs $169, the lack of any features is pretty disturbing. But the one that Linksys actually points out in their documentation is actually not available on this phone. That feature would be a speakerphone, a mainstay of about every phone sold today. The phone works, but the speaker is apparently only to play the startup noise.

Also, it feels pretty cheap when using it. I was afraid I was going to break a button. This one went right back to Amazon.

I really have found all the negative user reviews about the WIP320 to be funny considering almost all of them were from "early adopters", AKA people who bought this gadget "as soon as it was available". 90% of these people have to have known what they were getting into, and yet they're still so upset with Linksys because there were bugs in this product which is not just a new product, but a new product in a new product segment.

Anyway, I did a lot of research on WiFi Skype phones, and found the WIP320 to be my best bet considering Linksys has the best reputation of all the manufacturers I looked at as far as all the products I've used at work for the past 16 years. We use a lot of Linksys wireless products because they are just better than anything from Netgear, SMC, Philips, etc.

So, I've only had this phone for one day, but it was obvious it had some problems, although it worked great most of the time. The firmware version was 1.1.0.0, so I figured at least that's better than 1.0.0.0. The first problem I noticed was that after a full charge, the battery was almost dead after sitting unplugged next to our "old" phone at home for one hour. It was also pretty hot, much more than it should've been considering that it hadn't been touched for an hour, so I thought something must've been wrong with the battery or power saving features. The second, more minor problem was that the menu navigation was lagging and freezing for several seconds sometimes. It was annoying, but didn't happen most of the time. The third problem was that I didn't see a way to use the speakerphone feature all the reviews talked about. Actually, a fourth problem was that the voicemail "On" setting kept going off for some weird reason and calls wouldn't go to voicemail.

After buying this phone and having it for a few weeks, I was forced to return it due to the following reasons. All I tried to clear up with Linksys technical support in India. Not one tech support agent had ever touched the phone.

1) Locks up after a Skype call of 5 minutes or more and requires reboot

2) Clock and Date resets after any power off

3) Speakerphone does not work

4) Bad customer service

Other than that, the phone would make calls via Skype fairly easily.
