> Use Your Normal Phone to Make and Receive Internet Calls
> Making Internet phone calls is free and easy, but it is just too
cumbersome

> Additionally,

They
> sound
> as good as normal calls with the Internet Phone Wizard's echo-cancellation
> technology
> and excellent voice quality. The calls are also easy to make, with a
> speed-dial feature
> that lets you call your friends by tapping only a couple of keys on your
> phone.
> Use the Same Phone for Internet and Normal Calls
> The Internet Phone Wizard is the world's first device to truly integrate
> Internet
> calls with normal calls. Whether you want to make or receive calls, use
the
> same
> phone for all your Internet as well as normal calls. This is not only a
> handy feature,
> but it is also very easy to use. When you receive a phone call, the
> Internet Phone
> Wizard automatically detects whether it's an incoming Internet or normal
> phone call
> and switches to that phone mode automatically. You just have to pick up
and
> start
> talking. When you pick up your phone to make a call, you'll hear a regular
> dial tone
> and it will be ready for normal calls. If you would like to make an
> Internet call,
> a couple of key taps your phone informs Internet Phone Wizard that you
want
> to make
> Internet calls. In addition, the Internet Phone Wizard comes with a
unique,
> patented
> call-waiting feature. When you 're already on a call, you can pick up
> incoming calls
> by just pressing a couple of keys. So whether you would like to use your
> phone for
> Internet or normal calls, switching between the two is as easy as pressing
> a few
> keys on your phone.
> Get a Second Phone Line Absolutely Free
> With Internet Phone Wizard, you no longer have to wait for family members
> to get
> off the phone when you want to make a call. Use the capabilities of the
> Internet
> to create another phone line, for free. The Internet Phone Wizard with
> Skype does
> this without any configuration. And because Internet Phone Wizard lets you
> make calls
> to anyone in the world - whether they're on a computer or a normal phone,
> you can
> call anyone you want, when you want to call them. Now you can call friends
> across
> town, across continents-without tying up phone lines and at no cost
> whatsoever.
