    I posted to the wrong news group and did not get any reply. So, here's
    my question here for one last try.

    Does anyone has experience over what is the best way to chat over
    VOIP? I use Skype mainly and had orginally wanted to get a wireless
    headset from Plantronics. But recently found that I could use a Skype
    USB adapter such as the rapidBox from rapidVoIP.com and convert my
    cordless phone into a USB phone. I wonder what are the pros and cons
    especially when come to sound quality.

    USB phone will require your PC being ON.
    You be better of with router which has VoIP socket(s) (e.g. Draytek Vigor
    2500V, 2600V or Zoom XV5) or
    ATA VoIP phone adapter plugged in to a router, then use ordinary cordless
    phone, regardless whether your PC is on or not.

    There are also stand alone WIFI VoIP phones, like Zyxel 2000W, but alas
    quite expensive.
