I go month or more before i have to reset again. I would say call quality is better than the average cell phone.The cost is low, but there is a snake in the grass with your service agreement. NetTalk uses a cleaver motto to lure you in. "Fire Your Phone Company" And @ less than $50.00 for the 1st year, that's seems so amazing and just unbeatable right?Well what they don't boldly advertise or tell you, is that you're limited to 3,000mins a month. That is 100mins a day if you average it out. But if you go over that 3,000min limit ever, your account is changed without your permission to a pre-paid plan. When you try to call out it tells you that you don't have enough credit to place the call. All incoming calls and 911 calls still work. So you get online to find out why you can't call out, and see an email accusing you of being a violator and a bad person basically. They give you an email address to appeal their decision. However they space out their replies, always around 10 days in-between. So you get an appeal they ask you to pay a $5.00 re-activation fee, and email them once you have made that payment. So you pay it, send them an email with the receipt number. You don't realize you put money on your account and are paying per minute. So you pick up your phone make a call "YAY IT WORKS" so you go on like it never happened. You run out of mins in days, but don't understand so you call customer service they tell you to await a reply. eventually (about a week later) you'll get a reply saying they can't find that money in your account, and to pay again the $5.00 re-activation fee and email the receipt number. Well obviously you used it making calls right? If you like loop games and wasting money then its a great fit. Otherwise track your min's usage because NetTalk don't do it for you.My opinion is if you have kids 100mins a day isn't even close to enough, so i wouldn't get this. 07/13/2012
Rated 3 out of 5┬áby pd125 The NetTalk Duo has very easy setup but we noticed that it has to be reset often (sometimes once a day) to work properly. The quality of the calls are very good when we call out and receive calls. We have a relatively good router and very fast cable internet so I don't know why this happens. We don't have very good cell phone reception at our house but we both have WiFi calling on our phones, so this is a good for those who want a cheap phone service as a "backup" or one that you can hear in any room (just in case your phone ring is set low or on silent). 07/08/2012
Rated 3 out of 5┬áby ToledoFred Won't Work for me. The design, back up and presentation all seem first class, but not being able to have a phone number that is local for your customers is not acceptable for me. The closest available area code was for a city almost 200 miles away ( and I live in one of the 50 largest metropolitan areas in the US) If you live in one of the relatively few area codes they serve, I think it would be a good choice. When asked, they say they are working on the problem. Having live US based customer service is nice, but the average wait time is close to 45 minutes, and don't believe that you can have them call you back "without loosing your place..." It won't happen, or at least it has not happened for me 6 out of 6 times. 07/06/2012
Rated 5 out of 5┬áby kylerayk Even faxes My main reason for having a land line is to fax. I was paying the phone company $27 per month for the most basic land line just to fax. Then, faxing long distance was additional. Very frustrating. This product has been able to fax and that was my major concern. Voice is also very clear. They were able to port my number, so, there is really no change in service or quality. Man, I really wasted a lot of money with the phone company!!! 06/28/2012
