| || || | Which codec for Betamax \ Dellmont in Siemens A580
I'm using a Siemens A580 IP for my VOIP calls. Using Discount Voip for my
outgoing calls. It works OK but I can certainly tell an audio difference
between that and say Voipfone, which is what I am using for incoming calls.
I was just wondering what codec selection other folk were using for the
various Betamax services. I'm on a 150 mbps FTTP connection.

All my existing 03 number routings still work, but the management
platform http://03now.co.uk just redirects to the parent site
https://nexbridge.co.uk/ so I can't amend anything.
I sent Nexbridge an email this morning, and got this reply:

| || || | Distinctive Ring Tone for number prefixes
My Grandstream ATA allows me to set distinctive ring tones based on Caller
ID, and I'm using that successfully.
The manual also tells me I can set distinctive ring tones based on prefix:
"""For example: If configured as *617, Ring Tone 1 will be used in case of
call arrived from the area code 617."""
OK, nice feature, so I'll configure a distinctive ring tone for the prefix

| || || | VOiP in home with analogue phone line
We currently have a Virgin Media analogue phone line, connected to a DECT
base station which provides answerphone, caller ID and phone service to a
number of Dect handsets around the house.
If I wanted to keep the analogue line, is there a device I can plug into the
analogue phone line, that will then give me VOIP service within my home. I
envisage this device connecting to my local...

| || || | VoIP with existing wiring and an NTE5c
I'm planning to switch my landline number over to a VoIP provider, and use an
ATA to connect to the existing phone wiring and handsets. That way my aged
parent doesn't need to learn anything new.
I used to have 2 master sockets - an early NTE5 with a DSL faceplate, and
then a single pair link from the filtered side of that to a 'voice only'
master socket. That was done to make it easy to...

I use C Sip Simple on my Android phone with Sipgate, when a call comes in and I want to answer it on the mobile it rings but there's often no button displayed to press to answer the call and by the time I've tried searching for one or pressing the icon for SSip the call's gone to voicemail!
Is there some obscure setting I need to change?

| || || | Wierd problem with Siemens Gigaset C475IP and multicast (maybe)
We have a largeish house with WiFi and wired LAN using two Draytek
routers (a 2860n and a 2820n) plus several switches.
The 2820n is now just a WiFi access point, i.e. its WANs are not
connected to anything and it just runs as a switch with WiFi.
The C475IP used to be connected to the 2820n but since we started
using Youview (via PlusNet) more extensively it was getting rather

| || || | What can an SPA3000 do?
I've just bought an unlocked SPA3000, but I'm now wondering whether
it can do what I want it to do. Which is:
- incoming calls on the analogue line go to the existing DECT base
- my and my wife's mobile phones can register to the SPA3000's SIP
- incoming calls on the analogue line are also offered via the SIP

For anyone who might have been using their UKDDI numbers still, as
they were still working when pointed to a SIP address, these now
no longer work, as it appears the platform itself has been shut down.

Very much as above anyone know of a VoIP handset portable cordless phone

is by wireless wi-fi rather then wired i.e. plugging into a router?.

| || || | Calls via VOIP fail
A number I call several times a week in Zimbabwe (around 90 minutes
total per week) has had its area code changed. Calling the number using
the new area code via JustVoip, HotVoip or 18185 fails. However,
dialling the number via BT or a mobile provider connects perfectly
........ at horrendous cost!
Any thoughts on how to get round this problem?
