What is a cordless or desktop phone for Skype?

A desktop internet phone for Skype allows you to make unlimited free phone calls to all your Skype contacts with no need for a computer. It also lets you make calls to landlines and mobiles at great Skype rates and receive calls to your Skype Number.

A cordless phone for Skype allows you to do everything a desktop internet phone does, as well as make calls over your regular landline. These are also known as dualphones.

You can also get plug-in or USB phones; these need to be plugged in to a computer that has Skype installed with access to an active broadband connection. You can download the latest version of Skype for free from our website.
