Virtually everybody that uses Skype also makes and receives normal telephone calls. CuPhone’s RJ11 Phone Adaptor-Dual enables all types of calls to be handled using one piece of equipment and this piece of equipment can be, for example, the cordless phone that was the users preferred phone before Skype even existed.
