USB Adapter

Are there other, less expensive USB adapters that work with the Merlin Home Transmitter. The St. Jude option seems somewhat expensive.

Does it need one? Mine plugs into the wall, and my insurance covered it.

Haven't received the unit yet, but the paperwork says it does and we don't have a landline.

Mine doesn't use a landline, it's cellular. If you didn't get it yet, you might want to call and ask because I know St Judes makes one that just plugs into the wall in a regular outlet, it doesn't use my phone or wifi. Mine is 4 years old, from before Abbott bought them out, that may make a difference.

Someone here posted a bit ago they had succes with VOIP, basically a landline over internet.  I recently saw that Ooma has a feature for faxing which should also mean modem will work.  

Pretty sad if they dont offer interfaces for what people currently have.  While some of us still have landlines or VOIP, that is going away fast, wired ethernet is rare most folks just have wifi.
