I love my 3 Skypephone, it’s just too good not to and I wouldn’t be without it now. However there are two rather annoying features that if anyone knows the solution I’d love to get the answers….
Firstly if I’m on my computer and start a Skype chat it appears on my Skypephone as well. I don’t mind too much as with 10,000 Skype chat messages per month I’m not likely to reach their fair use policy any time soon, it’s just that the constant vibrating and buzzing is annoying. It’s handy for when I’m off in the warehouse and someone starts a new Skype chat or call so I don’t really want to keep logging out as I’ll never remember to log back in!
The second anomally came when I received a call today. I answered it on my DECT phone which is hooked to my computer with a USB dongle. The Skypephone rang as well so I just killed the call on the Skypephone as I’d already answered it with my computer. As soon as I hung up up popped a message for a missed Skype call…. well it wasn’t missed, I’d completed it, just not on the Skypephone.
Apart from that my testing with the phone is going well. It’s a great handset and I’m just totting up how many more I need to buy for Christmas presents. No point having 4,000 Skype minutes per month if I’ve got no one to talk to.
