VoSKY Call Center, enabling Skype to your Phone

VoSKY Call Center

Amidst an array of various telephony products in the market, Actiontec Electronics introduced the VoSKY Call Center sometime ago. This product allows Skype users to utilize their phones to chat with their buddies at no cost at all. And incase your friend resides at any other part of planet earth and doesn’t have a VoIP facility then there will be a small fee charged for the call. One of the biggest USP of the VoSKY Call Center is its potential of being connected to landlines as well, enabling anyone call anywhere through any medium.

The VoSKY Call Center software detects the device properly without any hassles, making the entire installation process a cake walk.

The main features of VoSKY are outgoing call forwarding i.e. making Skype calls to ordinary phones and incoming call forwarding i.e. ordinary phone calls to Skype calls.

There is also a call notification when a Skype contact is online. VoSKY comes with computer answering machine software included and also connects directly to your home phone. Other features include call waiting, caller ID for Skype calls, Voice menu and Echo-cancellation technology. External power is not required for this device.

The VoSKY Call Center device also helps in making international calls through a mobile phone.

However there are a few drawbacks aswell that we encountered whilst testing this device. To begin with, the answer phone is not that useful. For a fact the feature could have been made more beneficial if a recording facility would have been incorporated.

Though a majority of the calls could be made properly, some of them were dropped. The call dropping scenario was more prevalent whilst making outgoing calls as compared to incoming ones.

And if you think that by going in for this device you are going to save the dent in your pocket to a great extent, then I think you need to think once again, because while using the VoSKY Call Center you have to keep your PC on, which means more electricity bills.

However if you make frequent long distance international calls, and have relatives, loved ones, friends abroad or if you are using it in your office to make the important calls or trying to reach your business associates abroad then it is worth the buy.

At an affordable price of $60 (Rs. 2800), the VoSKY Call Center is worth a buy for those who’ve got their loved ones at a distance and want to stay in touch with them constantly by enabling relatively cheaper calls. The VoSKY Call Center undoubtedly gives a Nitro Boost to your Skype
