About six months ago I switched to Vonage for telephone services. The free calling to other countries has paid for itself many times over.
Originally when I set everything up, I had what they call the "Vonage Device" along with the VTech Cordless phone package. Not bad, but not great either. Some initial issues to contend with that were dealt with via a customer support session. Some fine tuning of the connection.
After a couple of months of minor complaints here and there about the quality of the transmission, I decided to try another phone, the GE DECT 6.0. For those of you thinking about buying this phone, don't. Take it from someone who just dumped them in the trash this morning. They are worthless. Keep your box and packaging materials as you will be returning it.
Yesterday I decided to purchase yet another system. This time the Uniden TRU9485. Pulled it out of the box, did the Quick Start, and within 5 minutes everything configured, connected and working as expected. Called a few of those people who initially complained about the quality and the issues no longer exist. I can actually hear the difference in the phone itself when using the handset for calls. I typically use an over the ear headset as I spend half my day on the phone. I can hear the difference there too. ;)
So far, the Uniden is far superior in quality to the Vonage and most definitely the GE DECT 6.0. The Uniden is also expandable to ten handsets. I've got three so far. Just plug the new one into the main base for 3 seconds, register it and off you go. Great phone out of the box with minimal setup. Noticeable quality difference right from the start compared to the others I've had so far for VoIP.
Any Vonage users out there? What type of phone setup do you have going? I've got the Linksys VoIP Wireless G Router with 2 Phone Ports. Port 1 for telephone. Port 2 for facsimile and home security. I also have a plethora of other wireless devices all around me and everything appears to be working in harmony, no interference.
