http://www.nettalk.com/en/duo2

It seems to do Fax and 911, free number porting and requires no computer. The only downside I see is if the power goes out or if you are unlucky enough to have a problem that affects some, but not all users.


I'm going to call tomorrow morning to find out what the difference is b/w original DUO and the just released version II.


Price Break down is
New Duo II: $35 + $30 = $65 for 15 months of service
Original Duo: $50 for 12 months of service
Duo Wi-Fi: $65 for 12 months of service

Called them.

Got "that's a great question, been wondering that myself" answers and after transferring me to the right person, the answer is:

The only difference is in pricing. NetTalk DUO II is exactly the same as the original NetTalk DUO. You just get a worse deal with NetTalk DUO II.

I asked three times in different ways if the firmware is the same, if the features are the same... if they are sure there is no other difference... yup: You pay more for DUO II and get the same thing as the original DUO. Since they charge for shipping, maybe it's better to get it on Amazon on newegg then

NetTalk would not offer free shipping or discount.

It's $45.99 at newegg and interestingly, it's on sale for $43.98+tax at Best Buy. Haven't seen Best Buy being price-competitive in years.
