Below are your VoIP questions answered – Real questions from real people just like you.
Q: Is this [Freetalk Connect Me] only for Skype or can it be used with any VoIP [sic] with compatible voice codec?
A: The Freetalk Connect Me is a Skype-specific analog telephone adapter (ATA) that allows you to make and receive Skype calls from your regular, old home phone.
The Connect Me allows you to switch back and forth between making Skype calls and calls using your home phone number. The diagram above shows how the Connect Me ATA is a bridge between your landline and your broadband internet connection.
The Connect Me isn’t designed to provide you with VoIP service.
If you’re already using VoIP to make calls, the Freetalk Connect Me certainly shouldn’t impede that if you’re looking for a standalone Skype phone option to make and receive Skype calls while you’re away from your computer. For more info, here’s a good Freetalk Connect Me video tutorial.
