    I'm looking for a standalone phone that will connect to the Internet via

    I need it to be able to be connected to two Skype accounts and at least one
    SIP (currently sipgate) account and receive incoming calls from any one of
    them. I don;t want to have to select which account I currently want to
    connect to.

    Are there such phones around? I didn't have much luck in finding anything

    Sorry i should have made it clear that all accounts need to be connected at
    *the same time*!

  4. Best I can think of is some kind of PDA with appropriate software installed.
    Does the normal Skype client allow you to connect to two Skype accounts at

    I share the same doubts as Gordon.
    If you are technically apt you probably can achieve what you want to
    do but it will take a lot of setting up. You would need a computer,
    switched on, to run some software.
    First you would have a standard SIP ATA working with a standard
    cordless phone set. The task then is to interface Skype with the ATA
    by connecting to its IP on the appropriate port.
    Running on Ubuntu Linux I have experimented with Skype/SIP interface
    software such as SIPtheeSkype and SIPtoSis. It is also necessary to
    install and run a Java Skype client for each of your Skype accounts.
    I have suceeded in being able to dial out to Skype contacts from my
    handset. I have also got my handset to ring on an incoming Skype calls
    ands to display the caller's username on the handset.
    I have a Ubuntu Linux machine running MythTV so I need that computer
    switched on anyway so it might as well do other jobs and SIP/Skype
    interface is one. The experiment is on-going and not at the point
    where I can publish details.

    Thanks for all the replies - it looks iek I'm asking for too much. What if I
    lowered the bar?

    Does anyone know of a phone that will be connected to a single Skype account
    and a single SIP account at the same time?

    I already have Fring on my WM Phone but I wan't something a little more
    'home phone' like and that people can use when I'm not at home.
