I have been seeking an app that could dial out and be used to monitor / record phone conversations. While the information online was a bit out of date, I found a copy -- and on my powerbook G4 12" 867 -- this works.

It's not perfect, but it works. Would love for the developer to continue with it. Comments such as scamware -- they have absolutely no place here. It may not work on your mac, but that doesn't make something with a 15day trial a scam. Shame on you.

Hello. I'm the developer of Phoner.

As you may have noticed reading the product description, Phoner enables you to use your modem as a phone.
If you have a standard Apple built-in modem, it can dial numbers automatically on your phone line, direcly from your home or work database (i.e. FileMaker/FileMaker Pro). This is a useful feature in a working environment.
But, as far as I know, the ability to speak directly from your Mac is only possible if you own a voice-capable modem !

Phoner is only a gateway between the Mac and the modem, it is not a magic modem upgrader and was never meant or said to be so.

Well, the description IS misleading. Anyone (myself included) who doesn't know that talking over a data-only modem is physically impossible will think that your program allows you to do it.

It wouldn't be called "fakeware" if it didn't specifically say DATA MODEM in the description. How you can leave that the way it is, and not think that you are misleading potential downloaders, is beyond me.

I am surprised the author didn't reply to the acusation of fraude.
If it is true that the program is a fake, it should be denounced or at least removed from MacUpdate to which it creates prejudice, and from Paypal system.

I agree with others here. Fake-ware. I could dial the other party and hear them fine but they could not hear me. Sucks.

It dials out perfectly and I can hear the person on the other end saying hello hello hello but there are no way for me to say hello back to them.
I am hoping that after registering this product there will be a place for me to set up my modem so I can talk back.
