My first VOIP call

Discussion in 'VOIP' started by Derrick Fawsitt, Apr 3, 2005.

  1. Although I am a great advocate of SKYPE to make free calls PC to PC,
    today I made my first VOIP PC to Landline telephone call. I used the UK
    1899 service to Ireland because I get my calls for 0.05 pence per
    minute. It worked very well in that I heard the person on the landline
    through my speakers perfectly, (as I listen to music a lot I have
    configured my system to only use the mike of my headset), however they
    did not hear me very clearly and there was a lot of interference. Where
    is going wrong, do I need to configure my PC to use the headset to hear
    as well as talk, if so I lose my speakers, or can I set it up to use
    both. Why was the reception at the other end so bad. Admittedly 1899 say
    they are in Beta but if I use someone else I won't get such a good deal
    on the cost of the calls and then I might as well use the landline to
    landline.
    Any help and suggestions and help would be appreciated.

    My apologies, unfortunately I posted this question twice by accident, so
    sorry.
