Hi all

I'm looking for a dual DECT / VoIP handset to use at home with my BT Broadband hub. I have a normal landline of course, and a full Skype In / Skype Out / Online number / unlimited calls / voicemail account with Skype.

I've seen a few handsets about but I want something that doesn't need a PC, perhaps that will plug into the USB port on the BT Broadband hub. I'd like to be able to make and receive BT and Skype calls, and to be able to tell which service the call is coming in over. Caller ID is essential. I'd like the Skype outgoing call to show my online number which I can set up on the Skype user account.

A single handset is fine, twin would be a bonus but is not essential.

Any ideas? I've seen Philips handsets, Doro kits, but none of them have particularly great reviews. I've also seen Panasonic kit but it seems pricey at 80-90 for a single handset. Understand you get what you pay for but blimey....

Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions, experiences very welcome.

Many thanks-
