An internet phone isn't a physical device like a regular telephone. The phone pad itself exists on the computer, which is why some call it a soft phone. Most computers are equipped with internal microphones. So you can literally talk to your friends by speaking into the computer screen.

So you're not only screen free, but hands free as well.
