Trolltech (those Greenphone guys) says Skype has chosen its Linux development technology Qtopia as the “prefered platform” for Skype’s certified Wi-Fi phones. That includes the Netgear and Belkin Wi-Fi phones and other Skype certified WiFi devices in the future. The companies already have a partnership for desktop products.

  1. Again, the problem remains that the carriers can shut off Skype access because it runs over a data connection. They need a way to get around the carrier…

  2. This isnt a problem at all – this is about devices that use a WiFi connection, so carriers cant do anything about this!

  3. well, actually carriers CAN do it – all WiFi’s have little value if they ain’t wired this or that way… and there is no way to do Her Majesty Last Mile overnight ;)

    1. MagicJack will work, I have one. But I will warn you ahead of time they will advertise so many years for so much money. It was 5 years for $59.95. So paid for it on 12/27/08 I have my credit statement to prove it. Well when the first year was up they cut the service off. YOU can’t hold of anyone on the net, they had tecks. what they did was ask me how much I was willing to pay for an answer. NOW all of this is facts. If you would like to see my statement let me know I will scan you a copy to see. I ALSO have the e-mails the teck sent me.

      As far as the magicjack working yes it does. But be careful never pay more then a year at a time. Your money will be gone.

    I ordered magicjack……great if they people I call would hear me better. They say I am way in a distant. I turned mic up with no change. I talked with 3 techs that could not change anything with what they suggested either. Took off anti-virus and firewalls with no change. So must send it back. Sorry not to my satisfaction.

  10. Received Magic Jack 9 days ago. It worked fine for 48 hours and now I cannot receive a phone call. I can dial out fine. Have spent 5 hours working with tier 2 tech support, engineering support and finally the “concern department” They can only state it’s problem on their end, and everyone promises a resolution and email within 24 hours. You guessed it… I’ve never received an email and I’m sending this P.O.S. backfor a refund.
