netman88: Hi Roy.. I interconnect them using the jack extension (as per video) to
connect to fax machine.
elephantrange: DUO has been working well for me for 3 months, one day of not being able to
call a particular area code aside, On that occasion, I sent in a ticket,
and the issue was fixed next morning. Once in a while there is an echoey
call. Nothing that hanging up and calling back hasn't fixed, though. .
skunizzi: what kind of range do you get with this device?
Can you use it in a home with 3 floors?
roy norman: Great video, can you show how you set up your net talk duo to a fax
Sheeraz Munawar: **** stay away never works stay away ******* Peace of crap product and
same kind of crapty so called customer services
Evgeniy Deynega: Never, never get close to the NetTalk, no support and no service.
They only know how to charge your credit card.
NO SERVICE, NO SUPPORT, JUST NOTHING !!!
mrdrumsauce: Everyone beware, the NetTalk Duo is the biggest POS ever, I can't even
begin to communicate how frustrating this service is, it goes down
constantly, up time is 2 days absolute maximum, call quality is terrible,
when it goes down you have to also reboot your router to regain service. I
called my net duo line the other day and was connected to someone in India.
I've used the same service in 2 different locations, using 2 different
maxed out cable ISPs. DO NOT BUY this junk, it sucks!
Craig C: I purchased my Duo over a 1 1/2 years ago. It is plug and play, just follow
the instructions and plugged it into my router and then activated it. I let
it run for a few months before I even thought about porting (transferring)
my home number. So many reviews I read the user never did have a good
internet connection to begin with, they are asking for problems trying a
VOIP phone until they get the connection fixed. I was paying AT&T $45 per
month for a home phone, way too much. The first time I tried porting my
home number when I had AT&T DSL it killed my home phone and my DSL. I found
out from AT&T that your DSL and phone number are tied together. I restored
service but this time opted for U-Verse with the AT&T VOIP phone. My VOIP
phone number was the same one I had for a lot of years and did not want to
lose.I ported my phone number from AT&T and it went smooth. My charges for
NetTalk are $29 per year for unlimited calling in the U.S. and Canada.
AVOXI: People would be interested in keeping their old phone number, but this
video description speaks to this issue as well.
kerosblade: for net talk do customers have to pay phone tax each month
netter1ltr: Thanks! I will try next phone call
netman88: no idea. Maybe somebody else can answer? I don't see why not though.
netman88: Thanks for pointing it out. That's a copyright infringement on my video.
Complaint filed against that user.
netman88: I have a DLINK DIR655 and works great, I have Zoom cable modem
netman88: Check their Customer Support page. I have not used it though.
netman88: @rketr Yes, I want to have phone service throughout the house.
Tim tom: Good product when it works, when it goes south look out i sent a repair
ticket 3 days ago, they sent me 1 email fix i didnt work i sent a reply
saying so with no response. I tried there online chat they never responded
prolly because they will only answer from 10:00 am thru 4:00 pm eastern. I
have now been without a phone for 3 days
Jeff Richard: Try calling their technical support let me know their waiting time. Their
online email system hasn't responded to my 4 emails... it's been over a
netman88: Probably best to call them. I'm assuming your purchased it directly from
lalotz: you see, i would go with Obi110 also but they dont tranfer over your old
phone number as yet (am i wrong?). But it is free.
MrDICKHEAD28: booo how is the call quality
D. Sucuzhanay: I been using MagicJack, and I'm satisfied with the service, but I'm need
fax service and u said I can use fax with this, How will that work?
MrDICKHEAD28: how long you had it? and how is there billing practices?
sdushdiu: And yes, when they added the WiFi, they dropped the price of the Duo to
~$49.95 and introduced the WiFi at ~$65 depending upon where you by it. So
no one got "riped" off. they simply were saving money before you figured
out what it was and a bought one. Now you can tell us how the buyers of the
early iPhone models got ripped off.
Nicolas Yens: you need a good internet connection, I do have nettalk, this is one of the
best phone service I have ever have, no just for the price, good sound, I
send faxes plus really good costumer support, calling costumer support you
must call the number in Miami go to the different extension and pick one
se7ensnakes: I am not concern about getting a new number. I am pretty much settled with
the obi210. It appears to have so many features.
kakashi2able: Is long distance incoming free from europe?
lovelybutterfly32: Now according to the NetTalk Duo website you're able to transfer your
existing number. Just type in the prefix and the first 3 numbers to check
your number is eligible.
David Cult: Also in Canada, for at least 2 weeks now, only outgoing calls are working.
First the 911 was off, now all in coming calls get a busy signal and there
is no hope in sight for a resolution. Buyer beware. You get what you pay
netman88: @californiaspinnaker There is a yearly cost $29.95 after the 1st year. It's
$49.95 1st year. I'm just a consumer also and I'm satisfied with the
product so far. I wasn't able to port my old phone # but I'm happy with my
new # now. I think MagicJack came out with the plus version now (right
after I got the Nettalk duo). But the MagicJack has a higher startup cost?
Have anyone used that also? There is also another one called Ooma (not sure
if anyone has tried that one)?
Batong Bakal: One thing I noticed is, if you are using the Duo Wifi, you should make sure
that it is close to the wifi router or there are no walls between them, coz
if they do, it will result in dropped calls....
netman88: Not sure about your experience. For the price it's good for me. I have
Comcast Cable internet with Zoom cable modem, now Linksys e1200 router. Not
always perfect but works well and can fax.
snatale1: @MrSucuzhanay you can fax over Majicjack, turn down your baud rate or turn
on overseas mode if you fax supports it.
Jeff Richard: What an awful product and company, Before buying this product, try calling
their customer service line, see how long it takes to get through. The
product is cheap, and broke after 2 months (will no longer power on) and
after submitting an online ticket have heard nothing back in 3 weeks. Also
when it was working the phones were constantly plagued with reverberations
and other robotic sounding effects. Not worth with, DO NOT BUY IT
Batong Bakal: already did during my initial set-up. While ive waited close to half an
hour, they were able to help me out quickly. Ive tried magicjack before,
and they do not have support as nettalk. Tell me another voip company that
has a better support than nettalk..
manicmosquito: Can you still use phone cards to make international calls on net talk?
se7ensnakes: i had net talk duo for 6 months and suddenly i was unable to call out. They
told me i had exceeded the 3000 a month limit and needed to pay extra. So I
went to look this up and sure enough there is a limit. They call it over
use or something. In either case no point in arguing. i had to look for
another service. I hate scams
netman88: I think they bill the CC but you might want to inquire them. I don't use
netman88: @BurgersHouse True. Check this out. 24hrs/day x 60min/hr x 30days = 43,200
mins/month avg. Normally, 4hrs/day x 60mins/hr x 30days = 7200 mins/month
or if 2hrs/day x 60mins/hr x 30days = 3600 mins/month.
1989sweetface: I don't have internet or a computer, I'm going to buy internet service when
I buy nettalk do I need a computer to use the service? How does it work?
Batong Bakal: Yes, you can transfer your own phone number. Just request at the nettalk
website to port your current number but it will cost you $19 and can be as
long as a month for them to transfer your number. They will provide a
number for you while you wait, and you can still call or receive a call. I
did it and they were able to transfer my phone in 12 days.
Preston Odenbrett: How do you turn on the 3 way calling feature, seems like it doesn't work?
Not planning to spend time on the phone for customer support don't have 100
min or more to wait. Thakns
sdushdiu: Nitwit, you bought the Nettalk Duo - NOT the Duo WiFi!
Bob smith: what is annual or monthly cost?? I have used magicjack for 4 years and that
is $20. per year,
netman88: Never tried International on it yet..
mrdrumsauce: Everyone beware, the NetTalk Duo is the biggest piece of crap ever, I can't
even begin to communicate how frustrating this service is... it goes down
constantly, up time is 2 days absolute maximum, oh and when it goes down
you have to also reboot your router to get it to come back up. I called my
net duo line the other day and was connected to someone in India. I've used
the same service in 2 different locations, using 2 different ISPs and it's
garbage. DO NOT BUY this junk, it sucks!!!!
William Mason: I've had nothing but problems with mine as well. Often, when a person calls
me, I have to call them caller back to in order to get a better connection,
or their voice is to choppy to understand them. It is very frustrating to
maintain reliable communications. If someone call you from a cell phone,
you almost always have to call them back, or it will start breaking down
almost right away. The DUO device doesn't not like cell phone incoming
calls. I'm stuck with several when they first came out !
netman88: yes. I can fax fine.
netman88: I saw on this for 3-way calling. I personally haven't use it but did conf
calling before and that part is great. 3-Way Calling (how to) Press the
Flash button (or the hook) during a call. Once you hear the dial tone, dial
the second party. When the second party is connected, press the flash
button again to conference in the first party. There will be a three-way
QJR33: is this better than the Magic jack?
