I've just bought mine from Argos - they're ~£30 there too. Interestingly the
Amstrad site says they're "around £29" but not many places seem to have them
for that price yet.

I'm a bit disappointed though that it doesn't even work as a plain old phone
until you register! I thought at the very least I'd have a working phone if I
couldn't do anything else with it!

I'm going to attempt Jonathan's method of using Asterisk to get the E3 to call
a machine with a modem on it and see if I can get the phone to think it's
registeed, but I think that might be a tall order. I'll let the list know how
it goes, and no doubt be back for advice!!
