Will I need a new telephone?

In a word, No.

VOIP requires your telephone to be plugged into your Vonage Box rather than the usual telephone socket so you might consider the location of these. Of course, being a networked device, the Vonage box doesn’t have to be positioned next to your Gigaclear router; you can put it whereever you like.

Alternatively you could buy a new VOIP telephone, which would plug directly into the router and use SIP services over the Internet but that’s a bit beyond this FAQ.
