I hear Skype you need a PC to use it so that rules that one out. I don't make many phone calls and the idea of having to fire software up and plug a headset in just to make a phone call (no matter how cheap it is) puts me right off. I want a telephone (cordless of course)! I have some questions: 1. I hear Vonage are very good but what about the alternatives? 2. You can't keep your existing BT phone number right? 3. What about BB speed, surely it plummets when you're on the phone? 4. Is Vonage "that" much cheaper than BT? 5. My modem is USB based what Ethernet modem do I need? 6. This one will do right? : http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/products/index.html?product_uid=84060 I believe my Dad currently pays something like £20 a month and gets free calls (not mobile of course).
