| || || | Change phone number displayed on RX phone. SPA 112
Sipgate VOIP with SPA 112.
Outgoing call from voip phone display a phone number on RX phone which
is the phone number of my landline (not the voip number of the TX
I cannot remember how it got like this, maybe even a default.
I need to change the outgoing CLI of the voip phone to present a
different landline number, or the voip number or eventually a mobile

| || || | wifi calling
IDmobile have just informed my that wifi calling is now available,
great. However, it doesn't work abroad. Is there any technical
justification for this? Surely it doesn't matter where in the world
Wi-fi calling - or Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) - will work
in the UK as it is using ID's infrastructure to connect, but

| || || | Finarea/Betamax/Dellmont down
My VoIP server started reporting that my Finarea / Betamax / Dellmont
trunks were down.
Looking more closely, they all use ns1 and ns3 .finarea.ch - both of
which are not responding.

| || || | False voicemail notifications on Csip Simple
I have a Sipgate account and as well as accessing it at home using a Cisco ATA attached to my router I also access it using Csip Simple on a Motorola Moto E Android mobile phone.
The problem is that on the mobile phone I keep getting voicemail notifications implying that I have a Sipgate voicemail message but I actually never get any voicemail messages on Sipgate, these are all false alarms...

I have been using Session Chat for sipgate and it seems pretty good. I
had been considering abandoning sipgate for skype, but now I am not so
Here it is:
I am not connected in any way to the company, I just installed the free
app and started using it. I get no complaints about echo anymore.

| || || | Softphones for Betamax
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
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.

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...

| || || | Can I port a landline number to VOIP, who to use?
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?

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 18.104.22.168
and 22.214.171.124. Some time recently, the second of these paths has
gone offline, so if their load balancing mechanism is...

| || || | Using 3G/4G for VOIP - issues?
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 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...

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
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
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

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...
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...
