You can still use your existing handsets, and your computer does not have to be switched on. How it works: To use MyNetFone s VoIP service, you simply need: Broadband connection, either DSL or cable VoIP-enabled telephone: Either your normal handset plugged into a VoIP phone adaptor (or a softphone), or an all-in-one handset MyNetFone service plan of your choice All our devices are plug & play: you ll make and receive calls from people with ordinary landlines, mobile users and other VoIP users in no-time!
