Question about Philips VOIP3212 IP Wireless Phone
We suddenly receive the above on screen message from the VOIP321 program. Has anyone had any success in fixing this problem? We can dial out on skype through the computer.....but we cannot access using the handset any longer.
Since Skype Version 126.96.36.199 (Release date: November 19, 2008) and all later versions (including Skype 4 Betas) the software Phillips supply no longer works with Skype and the VOIP321 phone.
The latest VOIP321 driver from their website suffers the same issue, even though it states "The VOIP321 USB Phone Driver V 3.8.3 which can be downloaded from Philips web site is compatible with Skype software version from V2.0.0.x until V3.8.0.x". This is plainly no longer correct with the latest stable release of Skype, V188.8.131.52 (as at Jan 2009).
Skype developers are unwilling or unable to do anything about it and Phillips wont update their driver (Quote "... no more development/fixes are being incorporated into the VOIP321.EXE file"). Phillips would probably rather sell you a newer bit of hardware.
Don't waste your time on Phillips Skype phone devices, as their driver support is lacking when Skype is updated, so you buy a product for a few hundred dollars and it becomes useless 12 months later.
Another reason to not purchase the Phillips Skype phones is that it is Windows Only. No Mac or Linux support or drivers offered.
The solution if you already own this device.

Skype 4.0 and Voip Driver 3.83 work fine. Suddenly I found Voip did not connect with Skype. Then I tried reinstalling both softwares. Finally a small trick worked ! In the handset Skype Menu there is an option Skype Reset. I did this and started connecting again ! Maybe all these re-installation was not necessary at all !!
Philips is just great ! I used several other instruments including Nokia 5800 (with Fringe) but Philips 321 is the best in my experience.
