great software, need to resolve one issue.
When a call comes in the alert box does not contain a green handset or accept button. The action menu also has grayed out answer and speaker phone
I am only using the land line through a US robotics 5637 with the desire to use my computer speakers and microphone as a hand set...maybe this is not possible??
Running lion on a relatively new IMAC

All else is working well

That's correct. Phone Amego does not provide an audio speakerphone when connecting through a USB modem. While some USB modems do have voice capability, Apple does not provide a standard driver or framework for this. [Microsoft and Intel jointly developed the TAPI framework to do this on Windows so it's more common. By this time the tide is shifting toward Bluetooth cell phones and VoIP, so we're unlikely to see this investment on the Mac. Some landline phones provide a built-in speakerphone, or support Bluetooth headsets which can work with Phone Amego.]
