Staff Summary

Concept good, very similar but lower price to many VOIP services, however the reviews I read, show some compatibility issues with various routers and I have experienced a lot of this with Vonage.

Read the issues people have before buying this. you can go to the forum on the bottom of the front page. It used to work fine, now I am having problem with it. I will have to reboot the device almost every 24 hour to make it work.

Green for the OP for alerting us to the coupon.

PC World gave NetTalk Duo a 4 star, very good rating in Dec, 2010 issue.

The primary benefit of this device over something like the MagicJack was
the fact that this device is connected directly to the router as opposed
to the MagicJack which is connected through a USB port to a PC. Then a
normal phone or even wireless base is connected to either one. The DUO is
more expensive than MagicJack ($70 vs $40) but this deal gets it closer.

The real dilemma is that network quality levels differ in terms of
SPEED or QUALITY of service (QoS). I'm not a technician but you need something
like 500 kbps speed and a 50% QoS rating from the network to get an adequate
level of phone call comparable to a land line. Even if your service is
supposed to be better than that per your contract or advertising, the real
situation that I have seen and tested is that the networks fall below those
levels. I don't own either of these devices but my basic phone line just went
up effective Jan 1 from AT&T. I'm now looking at my options but, in my case,
Comcast sells VOIP services that are more expensive than AT&T, hence my interest
in this device.

I'd appreciate any experience FW's are having with either of these devices
just to try to understand the real world quality level of these devices. I'm
sick of being gouged by the AT&Ts and Comcasts of the world. Monopolies...

Seems like a few people from FW bought it last year when it was 50% off.

I've use nettalk for 5 months now. no problems at all. I replaced magicjack with it. They also have a great free iphone app.

I too have to reboot it everyday to have it work... I don't trust this product to be even the backup line

is the code expired? could not use it yesterday.

Strange that the code wasn't working for Jessica. I just tried it (25OFFfor2011) and it seems to be working fine. As piyush123 stated, it was 50% off back in mid-November and BOGO around Thanksgiving. So the total price now is $17.48 more than it was in November, but I still think this is a good deal for anyone who missed out on those deals.

Your Total
Sub-Total: $69.95
UPS (Standard Shipping): $9.95
Discount Coupon: -$17.49
Total: $62.41

I use Ooma, and have had it for over 1 year, and never looked back since.

Thanks, fellow FW'ers for the various inputs.

In my case, so far, I have been able to reduce
my AT&T bill back to what is was by "negotiation".
So that heat is off, for the moment, for 12 months.

I tested my lines using an OOMA referred tool and
it came back as sufficient speed (I have the 1.5 mbps
economy internet package) BUT that my QoS was low at 28%
and would cause the voice to break up. In other words.
it would not be consistent like a land line. I then spoke
with (3) Comcast agents, who were not helpful and pretty
much gave the basic message that Comcast takes responsibility
to deliver a quality product. I disconnected from those calls
with no better understanding if they had any commimentment to
a certain level of QoS as opposed to just a SPEED definition
like 1.5 mbps download and about 385 mbps upload speed.
In fact, they make you feel cheap becasue you have the ECONOMY
package. It seemed their primary concern was more about how
much data was going through the line and their need to manage
the network so that everyone had equal access. In my mind I
never gave much thought to overusage of my access considering
all I use it for is email and web searches. I don't do video
streaming or pull/send large files unless I forward a larger
attached email file. I pay about $50@mo for BASIC TV and Internet
and assume that level or my PC won't support higher levels of
service needs like video streaming. One other curiousity was
I asked how Comcast could deliver a quality phone service at
those line quality levels which they are always pitching at
very high rates. One agent said their service was digital
and not VOIP. I didn't know how to repond. I think it was
totally BS but again I don't consider myself a technician,
so I left it alone.

Lastly, I have someone stopping by with their MagicJack to
help me test his hardware on my network. It's less of a test of
MagicJack and more a test to set expectations of how well it
works on MY line. It will also help me to see if I prefer
connecting to the PC or want the NetTalk Duo.

I hope this helps any FW'ers out there who might also be looking.
My wife thinks I'm getting a little obsessed by this but I
just don't want to end up with a bad purchase. Sorry dear.

nettalk is not unlimited. If you read your terms of service, they cap you at 5000 mins. My service got disconnected without notice because of this.

sorry, double post

I have talked to Comcast engineers and the real answer is that all their digital VoIP is out of band. They separate the VoIP out of the Digital Internet in a separate connsction and manage the QOS and Jitter just for their voice product. As you found their Internet product is not managed for QoS and Jitter making them the worst provider for anything streaming. PhilK...
