Where to park my phone number? by Anthony R. Gold
I will soon be moving home and want to retain a beloved landline number and presume there is no equivalent of Retention Certificates available for cherished vehicle registration numbers. Can anyone suggest an economical VOIP service provider to which the number might be migrated? I prefer a supplier with free incoming calls and no standing monthly charges.

Softphones for Betamax by voipuser[_2_]
I can't stand any more complaints about audio quality from people when I speak to them on Betamax voipcheap.co.uk using the Betamax voipconnect softphone Audio quality is perfect both ways with Skype. Please recommend a generic windows softphone to work with voipcheap.co.uk. Ideally one that can extract my caller names and numbers from the cloud at Betamax.

Betamax (voipcheap) issues by www.GymRatZ.co.uk
Is anyone else having issues with Betamax clones lately? voipcheap.co.uk is regularly giving the message "no rowtes found" (Obviously it should be routes as in roots) This happened for an excessively long spell this afternoon but from having never had a problem in the last... 10 years or so to having almost daily issues with "no rowtes found" seems to me that all is not well in the Betamax...

Sipgate postal address authentication by Graham.[_3_]
In the last week or so Sipgate have introduced a requirement for newly created accounts, in addition to the normal email activation link, they must now be activated with a code sent by post, to the address registered for 999 purposes. You cannot make or receive calls until you receive and submit the code. Providing Sipgate an address for Emergency Services has been necessary for some time now,...

Can I port a landline number to VOIP, who to use? by Chris Green
I currently have two landlines both with ADSL which, with load balancing, gives me around 10Mb/s broadband. However we're getting FTTC which means one line will suffice. We'd like to keep the number on the second line, so:- Can I port the landline to VOIP? (It's on the Waldringfield exchange, 01473, if that's of any consequence) If I can port the number who can I do it with?

UKDDI - dying by Soruk
Yes, I know, the service has been effectively shut down, but those with numbers forwarded to a SIP address were able to still use them. Lately I've noticed that the numbers I've had with them have become unreliable. They had instructed us to accept calls from 87.117.74.1 and 87.117.75.1. Some time recently, the second of these paths has gone offline, so if their load balancing mechanism is...

Using 3G/4G for VOIP - issues? by Chris Green
I'm considering setting up a small laptop to use as a VOIP 'phone. I use VOIP already quite a lot so know the basic ins and outs and I have accounts at Sipgate and SipDiscount. If I get a 'MiFi' router and a data only 3G/4G SIM am I likely to hit any problems with mobile providers not allowing VOIP via their data SIMs? If so then which providers (if any) do this? Are there any other gotchas...

I'm confused about my VOIP setup (not used for a long time) by Chris Green
I have two VOIP service accounts, on is at SIP-Discount and the other is at SipGate. I use the SIP Discount one to make calls from my mobile phone when I have a WiFi connection using my SipGate account. What is confusing me now is that I have (from a long time ago) two phone mumbers registered with these providers, one with each. How do these work? I.e. if I call one of these numbers where...

Echo on Sipgate by Richmond
When using sipgate to make calls, people whom I call report they can hear an echo of their own voice. I have tried using headphones but it makes no difference. What is causing the echo? How can I stop it? I am using Twinkle, a linux client.

sipgate lack of ringing tone by Andy Burns[_5_]
When calling a sipgate number from a PSTN line I hear ringing tone while waiting for the call to be answered, but when calling the same number from a mobile (Tesco/O2), there is only silence until the call is answered. The called VOIP phone is ringing in both cases, with no issues of one-way audio when the calls are answered. It seems this may be due to sipgate sending the ringing tone as...

Recommendation for an ATA, please by Malcolm Loades[_2_]
I'm probably spoiled by only ever having FritzBoxes which allow almost anything! However, I need to set someone else up with an ATA and a single analogue telephone. The requirement is for the one telephone to receive incoming calls from VOIP provider 'A' and to have a calling plan which routes outgoing calls via VOIP provider 'A', a second VOIP provider 'B', or the PSTN dependant on the...

Sipgate with Zoiper on Android - Zoiper doesn't ring by Murmansk
I've got a Sipgate domestic VOIP account and have connected my ordinary home phone to it via a Cisco ATA. I can make and receive calls OK. I've installed Zoiper on my Android smartphone and can make calls via Sipgate using that but when I ring my Sipgate number from another phone I thought both the home phone and the Zoiper smartphone should ring, but Zoiper doesn't. Is there some setting I...

Dumb question about IP phones... by Rob Nicholson
We're about to start an evaluation of Swyx in preparation for move to a new office. So to have a look around, we need a few IP telephones. There are lots out there :-) But the thing that confuses me is that the phones appear to have a fixed set of features on the buttons. I kind of expected the keys on an IP phone to be entirely programmable and defined on the VOIP PBX, i.e. by Swyx...

How many phone sockets on Sipgate by Murmansk
I'm planning on installing a set of phone sockets all connected to one socket that is connected to a Cisco ATA that allows me to have VOIP calls on normal phones via Sipgate. Is there a limit to the number of phones you can have - a bit like the REN I remember with normal phones? In my setup, presumably the ringing current comes from the Cisco ATA rather than from the BT phone line as there...

To VOIP or not ; SIPGATE or NOT ; LINKSYS ATA OR NOT - bogged down by satyp
Good afternoon all I'm new to the VOIP, the VOIP @HOME world and also new on here, & so much information to consider.. Would appreciate any feedback, pointers, watchouts, or pitfalls before I take the big leap porting to VOIP in about a month's time. For My provider :- I think I have settled with SIPGATE for the moment, with VOIPFONE as my next best choice if SIPGATE doesn't work...

Sky and Sipgate by [email protected]
Help please. Having problems with a Yealink T28 and Sipgate (and A&A) accounts after changing to Sky and the new Sky router. Previously worked fine with Talktalk and Plusnet but I've made that many changes to the phone's settings fiddling it's like fumbling in the dark with a car engine and realising I've dismantled it to meccano level. I've updated the phone's firmware to latest version and...

IPKall with Sipgate by Mark Ingle
I'm trying out a sipgate account on my Starcom phone, and it is working great for incoming and outgoing local calls. I did a web search and some have reported that they have had no problems registering an IPKall US phone number with Sipgate, but I can't get it to work. I initially thought that it might take longer to set the service up, but it has been a couple of days and it still isn't...

Cisco SPA9000..? by Ria Elaine Gray-Jones
Does anyone have experience of setting one of these units up..? I am considering one but not sure how to go about configuration. I have 6 SIP lines currently on a Gigaset N300IP but would prefer a wired installation rather than cordless. I have a couple of SPA501G IP phones which work ok but there is no facility to transfer calls between them or intercom or anything. If I can get an SPA9000...

BT Broadband Voice problems by R. Mark Clayton[_2_]
It was working on 19th October, but since late last week the program reports "Error in response from server please try again" and it won't register on my Gigaset either. In BT's web site, which has moved, you can't pay, recent calls and bills don't appear correctly, many links are broken, although you can reinstall the BT Office Communicator. Not managed to Google anything about whether BT...
