mattosaur4: OK will have a play with the Telephone application.
Yeah I'm just looking for something for a laptop to avoid buying a 2 or 3 phone wireless Dect system. Have 1 portable phone attached to the modem which is too far away for my Dad to hear, he's always on his laptop so having some Skype like App that rang or popped up saying hey you missed 5 calls would prompt him to go get the Phone...
MadEngineer: Don't bother with the third party software as above and don't use dect as you may lose called id, missed call counts etc. Rather connect your wireless handset base stations to the pots port on your router if you're not buying one brand.
