If you've made calls using this headset OR a different headset, I'm looking for feedback. So far, reviews have been incomplete and frustratingly short of info when it comes to using the touch for VOIP/Skype internet telephony.
Someone has to have gone through this process besides me! Also, if Apple's new headphones are inadequate for making Fring/TruPhone/Skype calls, what have you been using? Thanks all.
I just tried Fringe's Skype Out using my Mac as a router connected to my AT&T 3G AirCard since the iPhone has to be on WiFi to use Skype Out. Then I tested my Skype In. Obviously, Fringe had to be working for Skype In to work.
Both worked, however the person I called and who called me was only a few feet away and the latncy between speaking and receiving was prominent on both ends. It seemed to be a full second. Unacceptable for calls but I did have to run a wonky setup to get WiFi working.
If there are things in particular you want to test let me know.
