Top Customer Reviews
This is a full-featured desktop phone with lots of handy extras, like a hold button, a mute button, and a redial button. The sound quality of this phone is excellent. The built-in speakerphone is so good that I almost never use the handset.
This phone gives you full access to all the features of Skype for voice calls, such as your Skype contact list. My favorite feature is one-button access to recent calls, which makes it easy to look up the numbers of people you call frequently -- just press the green call button and presto!
I wholeheartedly recommend this desktop phone for home business owners who want to use Skype to save a lot of money on their second phone line. I also use Skype for my home phone, and my two-line home/office phone system costs me only $10/month!
Pros:sound quality, easy to install and easy to use, works stand alone, size
Cons: Keyboard, Contact management, Prize
I am using the phone mostly as my home office line. I have to attend a lot of conference calls, so after dialing the number I have to add additional codes. The keyboard sucks, 4 out of 5 times the dial tones are not identified correctly. The number on the display shows correctly, but the interpretation does not! So I have to enter them over and over again. I also haven't seen an option to manage your contacts, other than from the Skype software itself.
On the other hand, installation, usage and sound quality are very good.
This is my 4th or 5th skype phone, and of them it is the best.
This is the first that is not wireless, and it does seem more reliable... but still has odd behavior. It will restart for no reason occasionally, and hangs on boot-up which takes a good 3-5 minutes.
My recommendation, use a simple android tablet (~$60 or less), install the skype app and set the app in a part of your house where you want a skype phone. Old cell phones work too, and this method seems much more reliable and they are updated more often. They will ring as a normal phone, and the cost is almost the same (cheaper than some of the other skype phones I have bought.)
** You just set them up to start skype on boot, and use your wifi. You can also take them to other places, as long as you gain access to their wifi.
Best skype stand-alone phone, still disappointed and will not buy any more. I am using simple android tablets (~$60 ea. or less) from now on.
Given the very small number of phones that work with Skype, and the fewer still that were favorably reviewed, I bought this one because I really need a phone that is always at home, always charged, and stays on without having to run a computer all day long.
After three weeks of use I can say it is ever so slightly better than the Belkin, but nowhere near as reliable as a telephone needs to be.
Starting this summer, Skype began kicking my Belkin off the network after an hour of two of connectivity, and it now appears to be blacklisted because I have been unable to log in to Skype with it for months. Since the Xblue phone has software nearly as archaic as the Belkin, I have to wonder how long it will be until Skype declares it persona non grata and kicks it off, too.
The Xblue phone already has to be reset daily because it keeps dropping off the Skype network, causing my callers to receive a "not in service" message. So far it has managed to rejoin the network every time I have rebooted it, but for how long? It is behaving much like the Belkin did just before it was permanently banned.
To sum up - this phone is based on very old software with most of the software vulnerabilities that rendered the Belkin phone it is copied from completely unusable. I would not recommend buying it if you plan on using it for more than six months.
