The GE Dect 6.0 Skype Internet Phone
This device is used to make regular and skype phone calls. It can make free phone calls to anyone around the world who also has skype. It will ring like a regular phone does when someone on skype calls you too.
One thing I really like about this phone is it’s very small and easy to carry around. It reminds me of the older nokia cell phones. I like the fact that It works as a regular phone and a skype phone. It will automatically store your skype contacts so you will know who is calling or whom you may want to call. You can customize the ringers and themes on it so you will know if it is a skype phone or a regular phone call. I know you will be excited to know that it comes with two games. I am not sure why you would want to play games on a cordless phone unless you were sitting around waiting for someone to call. The range is very good and you can go all the way out to the front yard without getting any static. The battery life is pretty descent too. It easily charges in a cradle like normal cordless phones do too. I never had a problem hearing anyone talk or have any complaints from them about hearing me either.
The phone earpiece is uncomfortable to talk on for a long time. I wish they would have made it softer and indented. I have lost my connection many times but think it is skype and not the phone. You must always have your computer and skype on in order for this phone to work. That is about all I can complain about it. What can I say…It is a phone.
I would have to say this is definitely a Gadget To Get. It makes it nice and easy to keep in touch with relatives,penpals and friends. It also allows you to be free from being attached to a computer using a headset. I picked mine up for $80.00 but feel it is worth it since you can use it as a regular phone too. You can’t call international landlines for free but it is very cheap compared to normal international calls. Please contact me if you have any questions or comments. Thanks!
