Apologies if this is the incorrect forum for this topic.

I have a question about Comcast Digital Voice service and other similar VOIP services such as Vonage that I can't seem to find the answer to anywhere.

What I want to know is----does it work in such a way that I have to plug a phone I want to work into the adapter they provide in order for it to get a signal? Meaning only the phones physically connected to the adapter will work?

Or does it somehow transform my existing phone jacks throughout the house into VOIP jacks so that any phone that is plugged into a normal phone jack will work with the VOIP service?

Thank you,
mike.

its only the phones plugged into the adapter they give you that will work VoIP... the ones in the wall will still go to your phone company...

tip; use a cordless phone with a remote charging dock... (look at radioshack)

there technically is a way to get it to work with the lines in the wall but such a modification is a novice no-no (due to the potential 'shock' value) so it wont be covered here... but if you feel up to it... and you -own- the domicile... and you dont have regular phone service anymore; ask...

Thank you for your reply. I figured that would be the answer, but I wanted to be sure.
