My internet phone wizard installed quickly and works like a charm with my Skype account. I'll be cancelling my regular phone service very soon. Unlike other adapters where the adapter rings (but not the attached phone), the Internet Phone Wizard makes the attached phone ring. Bonus: via Skype, you get an ultra-cool European ring (ring-ring ring-ring) instead of the boring American ring.

Excellent product. Simple to install and works slick with Skype. Incoming Skype calls has two short rings and other land based calls are normal rings. Very clear, no echo or hollow effect. The unit is very small no external power supply easy to hide. Updates prompted me the next day. Easy to update "next, next, next, finish". I highly recommend this product. I still cannot believe people pay for long distance these days.

It feels great to ditch my phone company!

This thing is awsome!

Plug it in, start to use immediately! Voice quality is very good, both for Skype and SkypeOut calls. You can even put a Skype call on hold and answer your regular line (and vice versa).

Product Overview

Actiontec Internet Phone Wizard (for Skype). Put the telephone back in Internet telephony! The Actiontec Internet Phone Wizard combines the best of both worlds - the ease and convenience of your normal phone and the zero cost of Internet calls. Until now, you had to sit in front of your computer and wear uncomfortable headsets to make Internet calls. Or you had to choose between completely separate user experiences between using a normal phone or Internet phone. The Internet Phone Wizard with Skype makes all of these problems a thing of the past. Simply connect your computer to the Internet, pick up your phone,and begin dialing as you've always done - without any worry of a huge phone bill. The Internet Phone Wizard with Skype makes it easy and fun to call any Skype user in the world for free, and everyone else at low SkypeOut rates.

Use Your Normal Phone to Make and Receive Internet Calls. Making Internet phone calls is free and easy, but it is just too cumbersome to wear strange headsets and sit in front of your computer to talk. This is just the problem the Actiontec Internet Phone Wizard solves. Instead of being restricted to unwieldy headsets or small microphones in front of the computer, now you can make Internet calls from anywhere with a cordless or normal phone. You'll still be using the Skype service and an Internet connection for these calls, the only difference is that everything will be channeled through the phone instead of the computer speakers. Additionally, these Internet calls come with superior sound quality and convenience. They sound as good as normal calls with the Internet Phone Wizard's echo-cancellation technology and excellent voice quality. The calls are also easy to make, with a speed-dial feature that lets you call your friends by tapping only a couple of keys on your phone.

Use the Same Phone for Internet and Normal Calls. The Internet Phone Wizard is the world's first device to truly integrate Internet calls with normal calls. Whether you want to make or receive calls, use the same phone for all your Internet as well as normal calls. This is not only a handy feature, but it is also very easy to use. When you receive a phone call, the Internet Phone Wizard automatically detects whether it's an incoming Internet or normal phone call and switches to that phone mode automatically. You just have to pick up and start talking. When you pick up your phone to make a call, you'll hear a regular dial tone and it will be ready for normal calls. If you would like to make an Internet call, a couple of key taps your phone informs Internet Phone Wizard that you want to make Internet calls. In addition, the Internet Phone Wizard comes with a unique, patented call-waiting feature. When you 're already on a call, you can pick up incoming calls by just pressing a couple of keys. So whether you would like to use your phone for Internet or normal calls, switching between the two is as easy as pressing a few keys on your phone.

Get a Second Phone Line Absolutely Free. With Internet Phone Wizard, you no longer have to wait for family members to get off the phone when you want to make a call. Use the capabilities of the Internet to create another phone line, for free. The Internet Phone Wizard with Skype does this without any configuration. And because Internet Phone Wizard lets you make calls to anyone in the world - whether they're on a computer or a normal phone, you can call anyone you want, when you want to call them. Now you can call friends across town, across continents-without tying up phone lines and at no cost whatsoever.
