    So I've been using skype on the Mac via the internal mic for around a week now but would like to be able to use a phone via the usb port. Most of the phones available only seem to be PC compatible... anyone got any suggestions or currently us a Mac with a usb based phone?

    Although there is no Mac application yet have a look at this forum topic that has just appeared...Mac Beta Testers
    You should also see a link to their shop.

    Not certain why you only consider a USB phone....Howabout using a bluetooth headset and you are wireless as well!

    For some reason I could not log on to the forum yesterday, but I'd love to sign up to beta test the new system, I use a Mac G5 Dual 1.8Ghz Power PC G5 at work with OSX 10.3.9 and a emac at home running Panther.
    I've recently been using the skype voip system using my built in speaker/mic set-up.
