I use it regularly in combination with Truephone on my E61I, as a very roundabout way of having Skype on my mobile, since I can't get Fring to work reliably.

Truephone allows me to, for now, make a free call to a Mobivox number, then I have access to my Skype contacts.

Even taking the fact that there's a lot of VOIP in that mix, it works OK most of the time. Occasionally, call quality can be a little below par, and after making a couple of calls from a landline phone, I think Mobivox is the problem. But as you say, very cool.

Thanks for the info jmosen,

I am a regular Skype and have been considering buying a non-USB Skype phone to make calls without the PC up and running.


With Mobivox I can now do this without buying a phone. Some of the feedback on Skype phones is not that flash anyway.


I’ll give it a go and post my experience

Hi eme

I use Mobivox all the time apart from the odd call quality issue I have no complaints
It's a great way for me to make calls to my Skype contacts from work where I dont  have
access to the internet
