Connecting a Handset to the Desktop App

Postby GeneralZod » 06/22/2020

I have a few of the typical home phone handsets as well as a desktop PC that runs all day. Is it possible to connect one of the handsets to the PC and set it to use the desktop version of freephoneline?

If so, how would I do this?

Thanks A TON for any help!

I'm not aware of any analogue phone handset that allows both external audio input and microphone output. So, I believe the answer is no.
Regardless, you'd have to dial using the desktop app.

If you want to use Freephoneline on regular phones, you'll need to buy the VoIP unlock key and an ATA.
