| || || | Yet another CLI question
We put most of our outgoing calls through Localphone.
If I call my mobile the mobile gets the localphone number but if I
call a BT line they get any of Unavailable/Witheld/International
I asume this is BT playing silly buggers with CLI from other networks?

| || || | Porting?
Will porting achieve what I want? If so how do I go about it?
My Mother has just passed away and odd as it may seem I'm reticent to
lose the telephone number. When the 'phone was installed in her cottage
before the 'old' King died, circa 1951, we had a 3 digit telephone
number on a named exchange. In the 60's a fourth digit was added to the
front of the original number, later still (70's...

| || || | VOIP provider with 0871 and 09
Can anyone recommend a VOIP calls provider that does 0871 at the standard BT
rates? For example, 0871 772 is a '7p/min' number, but Sipgate will charge
a blanket 10p/min and Gradwell 12p/min. Often Betamax and friends don't
bother at all.
Would be good if it could do 09 too (eg 0911 922 is 13p/min at BT).
I'm looking for a 'BT replacement' provider, so ability to call the full

| || || | VOIP from Hotel
Whilst on holiday I tried to make a number of SIP VOIP calls via the
hotels WiFi to retrieve calls from my home BT CallMinder.
The hotel had good Wifi and a reasonable Internet connection (better
than I get at home.) but the calls to BT CallMinder always failed after
a few seconds.
I did wonder whether the hotel's Internet connection was deliberately
designed to disrupt VOIP calls in the...

| || || | Siemens Gigaset firmware update
My Siemens gigaset 685ip performed an automatic software update in mid
week. I think it was a firmware update I wasn't really paying attention
and just clicked yes to accept.
Today I noticed that none of my sipgate accounts registered, probably
the first time I have looked since the update. It appears that the
sipgate registration details had been altered so that references to

| || || | Landline call to SIP
I have a SIP account set up on my mobile, what I would like to be able
to do buy a box that will on recieving an landline call then route the
call over VOIP to my SIP account on my mobile.
I have been looking at devices such as the SPA3102, but am unsure if
they will do what I am trying to do.

I'm currently with Vonage on their basic plan which is £3.49 a month, I
don't get any minutes with this which is fine as I only use it for

Once upon a time this was a promising alternative to Betamax. Only it
didn't work. No real surprise at this then:

| || || | Changing call forwarding without PC access
We require a single 'phone number which then forwards to another number
(this must be a mobile). Problem is that the mobile number may need to
be changed 2 or 3 times a day.
It would be easy if we had access to a PC each time we need to change
the number to receive the forwarded calls, but we don't :-( Does anyone
offer forwarding which can be controlled from a handset?

| || || | Simple SIP phone for providing support
I'm looking for a simple SIP phone to supply to a customer for support purposes.
Therefore I don't need a desktop phone with the capability of dialing anywhere; I just want the ability to preconfigure it with (eg) a Sipgate account and give it the ability to call a pre-defined support contact. If it could do nothing else that would be a bonus (ie you can use it to call the support contact, or to...

| || || | Beware Latest Skype Update
There's yet another Skype update being auto-installed. No you don't
get a warning, nor a choice. You sign in and immediately the update
begins downloading - and it takes about 10 minutes. The download can
take a chunk out of your allowance if you're on a restrictive contract
such as Three's 1GB per month plan, or a chunk out of your pocket if
you're on a PAYG data plan. CJB.

| || || | Selling my Sipgate box - any security issues?
I've used Sipgate via my Virgin Media broadband using a Netgear TA612VSP for some years. I've now decided to abandon Sipgate and get a proper landline..
In the early days when I first got the Netgear Sipgate device I remember logging into the thing via a browser to access the settings. I've tried doing this again today with a view to clearing out my settings but can't seem to access is using the...

| || || | Question about Skype
Anthony R. Gold
I use Skype (now Version 5.9) to chat to friends and relatives around the
world. I just added a camera and its image is confusing me. In My Computer,
and to others with whom I am chatting, the video image is correct. But only
in my own Skype monitor window my image is mirror reversed. My friends tell
me that their self-images are correct. Is this a bug or a settings error?

| || || | Not strictly a Voip question, about call blocking
I know its not strictly a voip question, but maybe you can help.
We use someone elses apartment/roof to launch our internet connection
(via a radio bridge link) to our complex about 5Kms away. At the
moment in return for this favour, we give them free internet access.
The incoming Telefonica ADSL line comes with free incoming phone calls
and free outgoing national phone calls. I would like to...

| || || | Nokia C3-01
My employer has just given me one of the above phones on Orange
I have a VoIP account that I would like to install on the phone
so that I can use it through wi-fi when away on hols.
Unfortunately the phone only seems to offer a small number (5 I
think) of service providers none of which is mine.
Does anyone know how I can install my own provider (voip.co.uk)
onto the phone?

I set up a internet system for a small camp site and I have some
customers who pay me each month for a connection to it. I also
installed some voip adaptors for them, so they could have a phone. At
the moment I just give them Sipgates details, they set up an account
with them, and I set up the voip adaptors with the sipgate details
they are given, from there on they deal with sipgate direct for...
