Thanks for your question.

I'm only able to find a message stating that there's a driver for CM109-based
USB VoIP phones (

But you should notice that (unlike Skype-based) SIP based telephony is *not* limited to the pc software.

That means it's way better to use standalone SIP phones (if you don't own a USB phone already), since they do not need a running Ekiga instance.

So just look around for a SIP capable phone. You'll find adaptors for "normal" telephones, special SIP-telephones, Wifi-SIP-Telephones and DECT SIP-telephones.

SIP-capable phones start at around 40€ (~50$).
