    Just wondering if anyone here uses VOIP, and if so whats the best software for it. Also, has anyone connected their bluetooth headset to this rather than a normal USB mic etc. Cheers

    Raf,

    these people are supposed to be good;

    As for the headset, I prefer using a USB than Bluetooth, but that's just me.

    I have a VOIP setup at home.

    You need to separate standard VOIP - i.e. SIP, from non-standard things like Skype.

    For standard SIP one of the best software items is X-Lite from here.

    Most of my home kit is based on hardware. I have an ATA from Grandstream which just plugs into my network, and accepts a standard phone. Avoids having to have the PC on to make a phone call.

    Looks good Harry, do you still have to use some sort of VOIP provider? If so, who are you currently using? Any problems? Cheers

    I use sipgate. It gives me a free Geo phone number, which doesn't cost *me* to call, and no sub. Fairly cheap outgoing calls.

    You will see some complaints about them on the 'net. It *hasn't* been as reliable as BT, but then it doesn't cost anywhere near the BT prices. :biggrin
