Echoing back to myself with Vonage?

    Hi,

    I haven't had a Vonage account for about six months now, but when I did,
    I used to notice that during some conversations, I would hear myself
    echoing back in my own ear piece. Typically when this happened, I could
    hang up, immediately call the person back and the problem would go away.
    Vonage could never give me a good explanation as to why this happened.
    They suggested that it might have something to do with the cordless
    phone I was using; However, I would think that it the phone were at
    falt, then the situation would have occured more frequently, and calling
    the person right back shouldn't have resolved it. I bring this up
    because I'm considering either going back to vonage, or trying something
    new. Does this still occur with Vonage and if so, does anyone have ieas
    as to what the cause is?

    TIA,

    --Al

    I've never had echo problems with Vonage. Sound quality is great. I do get
    echo sometimes using some soft phones when the other person uses the PC
    speakers, or has the earphone volume so high as to feed back through the
    mic. I solve this problem by giving out $15 handsets for christmas (free
    shipping) which mutes the PC speakers when the handset is in use. This
    particular handset also has a volume wheel on the handset which deals well
    with my hearing loss.

    I have had sound quality issues using XTen, which may be my own
    misconfiguration error.

    I have had excellent sound quality experience using Glophone. which requires
    *zero* manual configuration.

    Vonage has recently lowered the cost of the unlimited plan. It is now about
    $25 <and taxes> per month. You can now probably include the softphone for
    the same cost as you had before for the unlimited plan. (before the price
    reduction)

    Do you remember what Vonage charges upon cancellation? What I mean
    is, is there any disconnection fees on top of your normal monthly fee
    when ending the service?

    AFAIK they charge $40USD, which is refundable if you return your ATA.
