    Hello, does anybody knows about app/utility lettig use Mac as analog phone?

    eMac have all needed hardware -- phone line, audio-in and audio-out circuitry (i.e. modem-mic-speakers), so why I can't use it as phone?

    Thanks...

    The only thing I know of is this shareware utility: Jon's phone tool

    Hope this helps.

    There’s also an app called NetFone. Quite ugly because it has no Aqua interface, but it runs on Windows, too. I was able to speak over the Internet to a friend of mine with a PC and it worked quite good. Just do a search on VersionTracker.

    It seems this utility only can dial, but don't let me perform conversation using mic/speakers.
    I should dial from Mac, then go to the my phone, pick it up and talk... Whole idea (using Mac instead the phone) fails...
