Propellerhead - Vonage VOIP Service #2

After so many years of dealing with MS Outlook, it looks like I'll really get some good mileage out of Outlook Contacts.

Vonage has a free download called Click-2-Call. At first glance it appears almso useless compared with simply dialing the number. However, the sneaky bastards have added a nice extra toolbar to my Contacts menu.

Whenever I look at a contact that has phone numbers, I've got a button that represents Vonage, with icons that represent Cell, Phone and Business Lines. When I click any of those buttons, a popup appears, and with a second mouse click the dialing procedure starts. It rings my VOIP phone once it's figured out it's not getting a busy signal.

Whoo-hoo! This is much better than speed dial!
