I would like to know if it's possible use the pc as a phone.

I'm not looking for a VoIP program, I would like to make "normal" phone calls, using the pc speakers and mic instead of the phone...

Thanks to all,
Luca

skype supports "normal" phonecalls i beleve, for a cost, probably USA only too.

also i am sure there must be a peice of software that allows you to use a modem as a normal phone

I use skype, with his "skype out" function you can call to regular phones, you can use it everywhere, my wife uses it to phone to her relatives in Colombia from Europe (both to normal phone and GSM) and the sound quality is very good
Prices depend on the destination but are in general cheap

Thanks, I use Skype with my friends (only for VoIP), but I don't pay the national calls, so it's better for me if I use my "normal" phone to make calls..
This is the reason which I'm looking for a such idea to use my phone line to call instead of the Skype solution :)
