Skype USB Phone Adapter


  • Product Status: End of Life
The D-Link DPH-50U Skype USB Phone Adapter enhances your Skype Internet Telephone
Service. This Skype certified USB Phone adapter allows you to use your existing corded or
cordless telephone to take advantage of Skype's low cost calling features. Utilizing your
existing telephone improves voice quality and enables you to use your telephone's built-in
features such as speed dial, redial, mute and caller ID.* Using a cordless phone even unties
you from your computer while making Skype calls. Best of all, there is no additional equipment
to buy to start using the DPH-50U.
Receive/Make Both Regular & Skype Calls. The DPH-50U allows you to accept both regular
telephone and Skype calls from the same phone giving you added flexibility. When you are
talking to someone on your regular telephone line and receive an incoming Skype call, you can
easily switch lines to take the Skype call or vice versa, just like a regular call-waiting feature.
You can also do a conference call between regular telephone and Skype lines. For added
convenience, the DPH-50U includes helpful LEDs to indicate whether you are receiving a
regular telephone or Skype call.
Remote Calling Features. The DPH-50U can be configured to forward incoming Skype calls to
another destination such as your cell phone so that you never miss a call while you are away.
The DPH-50U also includes a toll bypass feature that is ideal for the following two scenarios:
The first scenario is when you are in the same geographical area as the DPH-50U and want to
make an international call. You can call from your cell phone to the computer that the DPH-50U

is connected to and make a low cost SkypeOut ** international call. 

The other scenario is when you are traveling abroad and want to call someone who lives in

your home area. You would simply make a Skype-to-Skype call to the computer where the
DPH-50U is connected to and use your regular telephone line to make a local call.
Easy to Install & Use. The DPH-50U includes two RJ-11 ports and a USB port to conveniently
connect your regular phone line, telephone and computer, respectively. Since the DPH-50U
receives power from the computer through the USB cable, it does not require a power adapter.
The included software installs in minutes and allows you to easily and completely manage your
Skype contact list and calling features. The DPH-50U is PC compatible.
The DPH-50U Skype USB Phone Adapter combines the best of both worlds by allowing you to
use all the great features of your existing telephone with the low cost advantages of the Skype
Internet Telephone Service.
