Placing phone calls over the Internet is now available in a true turnkey package with actual low prices.
Enjoy the world’s only end-to-end voice Internet service that uses traditional phones to make and complete calls. The Vonage DigitalVoice Service package contains everything you need to quickly and easily install a phone line in your home. In a matter of minutes, your Vonage DigitalVoice phone can be up and running, and you can be making and receiving calls over your broadband connection to and from your friends, business associates, and faraway relatives. It’s easy: just plug the included phone adapter into your high-speed Internet connection and plug your telephone into the Motorola VT1005v dual-port voice terminal adapter (included).
Enjoy the conveniences of a standard telephone service with none of the hassles. With Vonage DigitalVoice, you can talk all you want to anywhere in the country for one flat monthly subscription fee. Plus, you can make international calls at a low per-minute rate. Another bonus is that a U.S. call to Canada is treated like a domestic long distance call rather than an international one. Vonage also supports short-form emergency 911 services, where available.
Unlike other Internet telephone service providers, Vonage does not require access numbers, account numbers, or PINs to make a simple phone call. Instead, you just dial your party’s phone number on an ordinary telephone keypad. Switching your current local phone service to Vonage is a snap. You can even choose any area code you want, subject to availability.
Motorola’s VT1005v dual-port voice terminal adapter and router fully supports Vonage’s voice-over internet protocol (VoIP) service and lets you connect up to two phones. The adapter works by converting your voice from an analog signal to a digital signal, which is then recognized as data and transmitted over the internet. The VT1005v will work with any cable or DSL modem and operates seamlessly with any PC, Mac, or UNIX based computer, so you can talk and surf at the same time.
But How Does It Work?
Use Vonage like you use any telephone: With Vonage, you pick up the phone, hear the dial tone and dial the telephone number of your choice. There are no extra numbers to dial and no special routines to follow. It’s that simple. You don’t have to be an engineer to use our service. You can be up and running within minutes of receiving your Vonage package. We send you everything you need to get Vonage phone service, right down to the extra cable wire. Best of all, there’s no technician, no wiring in the walls, and no technical experience needed! Setup usually takes less than 5 minutes.
Easy Installation: Plug your phone adapter (the analog-to-digital phone adapter we send you for FREE) into your high speed Internet connection. Then take any standard telephone and plug it into the phone adapter.
Surfing the web: And if you’d like to surf the web and use your Vonage service at the same time, the phone adapter can share your Internet connection with your computer. Talk on the phone and surf the net with ease. (Depending on your home network setup, this may require additional equipment.)
How this lets your call travel: Vonage works just like the telephone you have in your home today. You pick up the phone, dial the number and it connects to whom you’re calling. In more technical terms, Vonage uses the phone adapter that we send to you for free to convert your voice from an analog signal to a digital signal. The digital signal then can be sent over your high speed Internet connection because it is recognized as data and then is sent over the Internet. When someone calls you, they dial your number. Behind the scenes, your number looks very much like an e-mail address. This number instructs the call to travel over the Internet and through our network to the phone adapter we sent you free, your phone rings, and all you have to do is pick up and answer it.
