I ran across one of these stuffed inbetween the wireless cards and network cards at the local Office Depot. I thought it was a really good deal. They had it marked at $59 with at $50 rebate. But after I got it home I realized the $50 rebate is only good if you sign up for the packaged VOIP provider's service. I already have VOIP service through another company so that didn't do me much good. The phone is very quirky and appears to be one of the first VOIP WiFi phones that were available. It looks like an early 90's cellphone and has a very limited battery life at 24 hours on standby and 3-4 of talktime. But if you can deal with that and the very horrible user interface (I use the WiFi interface to configure it, the phone itself is very difficult to use, compared to my Nokia cellphone) then it's possibly a fun thing to tinker with. I signed up with voipuser.org and freedigits.net for playing with the phone initially before setting it up for my existing VOIP service. I don't have wifi access everywhere that I go, but if using the VOIP phone saves me from going over my minutes on my cellphone even a few months it's already paid for itself.
It's also worth noting that I didn't find any pages dedicated to hacking it on the 'net anywhere. Two features that would be really useful to add to this phone are the ability to automatically switch to another access point when you are within range and the ability to store multiple VOIP profiles.
RE:Zyxel Wireless VOIP Prestige P-2000W on sale (modified 0 times)
The problem with this phone is that it's 802.11b, requiring that you set a wireless router to support both 11b and 11g on your local network, which in itself downgrades performance. Use of it on an otherwise 11g wlan will also degrade 11g performance as described in the tomsnetworking review of it last summer.
On top of that the voice quality is rather weak. IMHO, definitely NOT worth it if price packaged with a VOIP vendor signup.
