Used FT Audio for the first time tonight. At least as good as a phone (Telstra), if not better. Better than Skype - pity it's not cross platform.

So whats the difference from FT Audio to Handset phone cal with the Speaker on ?? I have to admit i havnt read up on it at all, because when you think about it thats all its seems to be, A normal call with Speaker activated... . . .

EDIT : Read more about it, as i had totally forgotten about it, and VOIP, yea so now i understand lol
Now that you have said it works well, ill be using that all the time now between the family, but the hard part is getting the rest of the Family on board with it.

So clear ? No Echo ? No Reverb ? at all?

After I figured out that FT meant FaceTime (dah!!) I thought I might try it.

The audio was good (it gave my wife a dutch accent) but the video was not good. Still, it was good for a giggle, and who knows, I might find a use for it one day.

I just found, its a cheap and easy way to talk to the kids in the Bedroom and tell them to 'Turn down that Bloody music"

Yes im L A Z Y :P But if they expect me to come everytime they call, then i can call from the lounge once in a while haha

There's another way too, assuming that that the room is on a different power circuit just pull the fuse or pop the breaker Posted Image
