Question about Philips VOIP3212 IP Wireless Phone

VOIP will not connect to Skype

When I first installed the Voip 321 it worked perfectly. After a computer restart, although it initialises the base it cannot connect to Skype. When I go to the Windows task Manager it notes the Voip as 'not responding. I have disconnected power and USB for 30 minutes and reconnected; same problem. I have uninstalled and reinstalled with the Skype version 2.0 contained on the Phillips installation CD- still no luck. I'm out of options and ideas. Any help? I run XP and have a reasonably powerful computer with 2g of RAM.

    Same thing here. It used to work perfectly, but recently (last succesful call: 20071109) it just stopped working.

    Skype is connected, the VOIP USB Driver says "connected", but I can't place calls or look at my contacts or status from the phone.

    Just bought the same phone and am thinking of returning it. Cannot connect to skype. Initialises base unit and then gets stuck on searching for skype. Done all the usual rebooted etc and still no joy.

    This is maddening. Everything about the Philips and Skype sytem are great until the drivers get downloaded. That's when the issues start. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the software twice. Currently, as I'm making a call, I have to quickly change the microphone and speaker settings back to the Windows default settings in order to hear and be heard. Once the call is done, the settings revert to the Philips drivers and iagain have no voice or listening capabilities.

    Sounds like I have the same or similar problem. My Voip 321 was working fine and connecting to Skype perfectly. Then, without warning, I picked it up and saw it was ' SEARCHING'. I tried dialing out and heard a busy tone instead of a dial tone. I cannot call via Skype or via landline and cannot receive calls in. It just doesnt ring. I have uninstalled..and reloaded everything.. batteries are fully charged... but still nothing. Please help me out if you can.

I got VOIP 321 This devise is not connecting with skype. The phone kept showing unavailable. I can still use the VOIP 321 as a normal phone but I use more for the skype!! Please help


From what I'm reading on various forums, this is a very common problem. I would call the retailer you purchased it from and ask for support. It sounds like it worked fine with ver 3.8, but many problems with Skype's new ver 4.0. If you can't get it to work, ask for a refund and look at RTX's DualPhone as I'm seeing good reviews!

Vtec 7100 won't connect to skype


1. Unplug and re-plug the usb cable from the base station to your Skype computer.

2. Make sure Skype is running.

3. Re-install the vtech software (you can download it at http://www.vtechphones.com if you need to)

4. When Skype asks if it's ok to let it connect, do that.

I have the same problem but what i did is to ru my XP in safe mode with networking and saw that is working ok.
after that, i just locked on which services are working on normal mode and not shown on safe mode.

Go to Menu-Tools-Options-Advanced and give your voip321 access to skype application.
