Re: Using Cordless Internet Handset with MSN Messenger
If you're running the sound test through Skype's options and you click on the make a test call option, then you won't hear anything through the handset. I had the same problem and I spent a few hours trying to figure out why it wasn't working. In the end I found out it was actually working all along.
What you need to do is add the Skype contact echo123 to your contact list. It should be the first one in the list from the United Kingdom.
Once that's done you should be able to bring it up on the contact list through Skype and initiate the call through the Handset at which point it will work properly and you should be able to speak to and hear the test call. That was the only way I was able to verify that it was in fact working properly.

If you use windows vista, and installed windows live messenger, you wil have alway`s this problem, solution is, dont let msn start up with your pc.
The best way, under software remove msn messenger, and install again en dont let it start wen your pc start up. skype and msn dont working together.
i hope your problem is solved
go to the logitech website http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/438/233&hub=1&cl=au,en and download the installation files depending on your version of windows, the vista installation files seem to work for windows 7 but just make sure you uninstall windows live messenger otherwise your phone wont work it will come up on the screen "disconected"
uninstall windows live messenger restart and your phone should work again, i installed the handset using the vista installation files no compatabilty changing at all but for some reason the handset does not like windows live messenger!
Haven't experienced this one, it should open if you right click on the icon in the tray at the bottom.
However you should still be able to change your Skype options, click on "skype", then "Tools", then "Options", then "Audio Settings", change microphone and speakers to "logitech" or whatever your computer has listed your device as. This should have the effect of changing logitech to "use handset" and gets the same result. Unfortunately the phone will never work as good as it should, for instance I can't make test calls. I hope this helpful.
Handset shows DISCONNECTED.
On Logitech support page lookup document 6674 (search).
Boot computer with minimum og services and programs running.
Start Logitech handset program - this starts skype.
the handset will disconnect.
As soon I start the new LIVE MESSENGER BETA - the hanset disconnect.
Therefor I installed a msn messenger extension in Skype extras.
This gives me the opertunity to use msn messenger without using the LIVE MESSENGER PROGRAM - if I do - Logitech Handset will not work.
