The NETALK DUO Does NOT require a computer at all! just plug it in to an ethernet port on your modem or router and your good to go.If you want to plug it in to your computer you can do that also it has a usb port on it for connecting to your computer. That is why it is called the DUO because you can use it two ways. Much better than the Majicjack

That is correct. However you DO need a "real" phone if you aren't going to use a computer. For instance a cordless or corded one. Also, you need to use the internet so you either need to plug it into the router (be sure it's one that works well with NetTalk- see my review of the product) OR computer in order to have it work. The computer does not have to be on if you are running it through the router. You can go online at nettalk . com and check out their quick start guide via PDF that's also included with the DUO. It will show you how it all works before you purchase it.

When you get Nettalk you will set it up according to the given instructions, choose a new phone number and begin using your new phone service independent of your old phone company. I would recommend not canceling your old service for about a week, test out the Nettalk service and make sure that it works for you needs before canceling.

When you purchase NetTalk & go to register it with the usernamer/password that is given to you in the box it will ask you what area code would you like & if available they will give you 3 phone numbers with that area code to choose from. If you would like to know ahead of time before purchasing you can check the forum/comunity room NetTalk.com under questions/answers or you can call them directly to ask if your are code is available.(Oh I was told from NetTalk by chance if not available they could give an area code close to where one is & that upon oe becoming available at no charge to you switch your phone number also). Or you can look up there phone number there & call them direct.Hope it helps

You pick your new number from a list of available numbers listed on their website when you register your device. Easy instructions are in the box with the duo. Takes minutes to do. You don't have to cancel your other service until you get this one all set up. This has nothing at all to do with your old service. You could have them both if you desired.

During installation, you have a choice in making a phone number base on your area code.

When you sign up for NetTalk on the net you will be given a choice of the location you want your number to be from. You can choose where you live or any other place. Your choice will give you the area code and then you select your city exchange (the next 3 digits). The last four are assigned by NetTalk. The say they are working on allowing your existing phone to be moved.
You should buy your NetTalk first and get it running. Then shut off your phone service. Keep in mind that if you have a DSL service with that land line you will have to get a new internet service.

answer 11
1.5 Mbit/sec may be just fine. The only way to truly know it to try it.

1.5 MBit/sec average rate is certainly adequate, since VOIP needs only about 128 Kbit/sec. The question is whether your particular service in New Bern supplies / accepts IP packets with consistently low latency (i.e., delay).

You may find that the 1.5 MBit/sec service varies in quality by time of day.

Lastly, it is entirely possible to provide 1.5 MBit/sec service ON THE AVERAGE, yet deliberately provide latency variations in order to defeat VOIP devices. 1.5MBit/sec service is offered to lure users from dialup Internet access. Your ISP wants to up-sell you to quicker data service and to his own brand of VOIP.

If you already subscribe to 1.5 MBit/sec service, you can check http://myspeed.visualware.com for a ballpark idea of its suitability for VOIP.

Of course, $70 for the NetTalk Duo is a cheap experiment. You could just try it.

Yes because all calls in the US are free so when you dial a number it has to know the area code because many numbers are the same only different area codes.
But some calling you from a local land line does not have to dial anything but your number, area code not needed, some cell phones may or may not need to dial the area code to call you.

Yes, you still have to enter the area code before dialing just like a cell phone. It seems to be common between all VOIP services.

I had the Magic Jack as my only phone for 6 months and it was great but I had to have a computer on all the time. You'll save money on your electric bill with the Net Talk.

If you have a phone with a phone book feature just program your frequently called numbers into so you don't have to worry about dialing all the time. :)

On most wireless cable modems there are four Ethernet ports. The device has to connect to this, and the phone has to connect to the nettalk device. I was hoping I could connect it into my home phone wiring but that didn't work out. On ebay they sell a wireless device -- do a search for dd-wrt, they cost as little as $25. These devices can connect to your existing wireless network. I for example have an AT&T 2Wire DSL wireless router that sits in our den, my nettalk is plugged into a DD-WRT device that sits in my kitchen. My DD-WRT device connects to the 2Wire DSL modem via Wireless Ethernet.

Yes, you can do it that way, without any problems or additional wiring. I have a phone system with 20 handset and 4 phone lines all are using netTalk, I was able to make this work also, was not the easiest but is possible and worth it, with a little creative wiring. (On your end of it) So you can use you old phone wiring system, create a closed loop (phone box on outside of building structure, in customer access side of the box only, disconnect wires from phone company, now your completely independent) a closed loop system. netTalk is set up as a single line, so you have to have one for each line. Feed each single line into the custom access box and wire into the old exiting wiring.

Best advice- stay away from this device- garbage all the way. Not a phone system to depend on.

NetTalk will only provide service to a single phone input connection and won't by itself drive the other tip/ring current loop as required by a regular POTS (plain old telephone service) - get a wireless phone/base station with 3 wireless phones - thats how I'm set up - recommend 5.2 GHz to reduce EMI with other router and wireless devices. This is especially important if you have a microwave oven within a few feet

Absolutely, this is actually the best way to hook-up a phone to Nettalk Duo.

Just plug in the base unit and use the sat units as you always have.

You need internet service - DSL at minimum and broadband is better. Idea is to fire your phone service for a fixed price alternative

No. Just Internet service. It plugs into your router. The beauty of it is that you can cancel your phone service and save all that money!!!

Net Talk will be your phone service, you will login/register with NetTalk to get set up and have your phone number assigned via their web site (is how I did it) and that is all there is to it. They will bill me when the next annual service fee comes due. Something like $29/year, a great value! And much needed!

No, just buy the NetTalk Duo and you get the hardware plus a 1 year subscription then that becomes a phone service for the 1st year. After that it is like half the cost because you already own the hardware.

Actually I believe you can. I know I can take my duo across the country to my brother's home and plug the duo into his computer or router and plug a phone into the duo and make and receive calls as if I was in my living room. I'm not quite sure about international, but I think I saw something about that on their website. Go to their website and check it out.

I got it because it claims to be usable anywhere there is an internet connection without needing a computer to plug it into. I'm looking forward to my first trip abroad to test it out.

Net talk use anywhere in the world. you disconnect net talk device and take you go anywhere in the world and connect to the internet and call.

you call number to anywhere in the world and talk, you must purchase calling plan via visa or master card ($5,$10,$20) very low international rate.
