    What is a Soft Phone?


    A soft phone is software that runs on your computer that allows you to take/receive calls as if you were using a VoIP phone. Prices range from free to $50 (approximately) depending on the features.

    With a soft phone you will need a headset that can plug into your computer. Most computers have a USB connection therefore you will need a headset with a USB connection.
