By the way, I have one of these devices with me, and seeing we don't use DSl I will probably find a deserving Geekzoner using Vodafone DSL to 'test' it...

Oh god, my Dad needs this, he phones me and then *Clunk* the call is dropped. You are lucky to get 1 bar of signal in his house + he also has Vodafone ADSL which is faster than mine (I am jealous)

I would say that outside the roaming areas 2 Degrees /might/ be able to use it, since it has to roam to Vodafone.

No. It's a Vodafone product as John said. Only works with Vodafone SIM cards.

No, it won't roam.

Isn't this sure signal thing, sinilar to  turning your cellphone into a cordless house phone. From what I can see from the promo page it creates a 3G  base station for your mobile to use, and that transmits the data over your broadband connection/eg over your phone line. Certainly a clever idea and gets around not having to install more cell phone towers. But I don't see the advatnage over using a normal landline or voip calling, apart from if you are on a naked broadband connection, or you don't want multiple phones.

The advantage is that if someone calls you (or you want to call them) on your mobile, and you're in a place that has poor, no, or spotty coverage.... you won't have anymore. Because things will work reliably and folk will be able to talk to you
