Isit possible to use a mobile phone to make calls via my Vonage voip
account, without incurring call charges on my mobile (02) account? I'm
thinking perhaps by using WiFi, which my mobile does have...

| || || | Betamax won't take my payment.
My credit has run out with voipcheap.com and I now want to credit a
justvoip.com account, but my Paypal transaction was instantly
refunded with the message from Betamax:
This transaction is refunded because we do not allow using
the same paypal account on more than one user-account.
Thank you for understanding.
How should I proceed?

| || || | VOIP newbie:question
Ok, I have a PAP2-UK from broadbandbuyer, very quick service I might add,
and have configured line 1 for Draytel, and line 2 for Sipgate. With credit
on both providers, the Sipgate works flawlessly, but with the Draytel I have
outgoing ring ok, no incoming ring, and no audio whatsoever.
I'd also like to use a single phone for both accounts, but trying to make
sense of dial plans is giving me...

| || || | Alternative to Home Hub For BB Talk
Forgive me if this has already cropped up...
Is it possible to use a VOIP router other than the Home Hub for BT Broadband
If so, what details do I need to know to configure it for BB Talk?
I'm on my third Hub in as many months, and I'm fed up with it!

| || || | Modem - VoIP line - modem?
Maybe its a basic question. But I am trying to find out:
Is it possible to dial in using a modem to another Computer behind an "VoIP
Szenario: home user with an internet contract that provides DSL. The phone
line bundled with the contract is established as VoIP. So no "real" land
Is it now possible to create a classic dial in to a server?

| || || | SPA-3000 trouble (VOIP to PSTN)
I'm using a Sipura/Tiptel co-branded SPA-3000 with firmware release
3.1.20(GW) -- the latest, AFAIK.
I'd like a (now local, in the future distant) SIP phone to access the
SPA and be able to place calls throuh the PSTN interface; and
vice-versa, calls from the PSTN would ring the SIP phone.
The SPA-3000 instructions are quite cumbersome and the web configuration
interface is not logically...

Firstly, thanks for all the comments and helpful replies to my post last
week - Thats it now!!
Well, I'm ready to go with my PAP2T from Broadband Buyer and I've chosen
Voipfone for simplicity.
I was setting up equiment last night, but the cable kept coming out of my
router and the modem one is broken too (they both work but fail to click in
as the ends have broken) I need some...

| || || | voip: Is it actually cheaper ?
Now and again I look seriously at the viability of using voip rather than POTS.
I currently use a combination of BT, 18185.co.uk, and Talk Talk (Routed with
an Orchid device).
A number of those calls are free. Out of the chargeable ones, the total cost
over a one month period was £3:78.
I've calculated what the cost would have been (I think) using Sipgate, and
their standard call charges.

| || || | Stupid question? ISDN / ASDL / Cable
I run a voip line on the end of a cable connection from Virgin, and I
fully understand that the system works as the cable is 'always on'.
What I don't understand is ..... others, who do not have 'always on'
cable, use VoIP ..... but how?
My Mum for example, uses (as it happens) AOL for her Internet -and it
a dial up broadband system. How could she use VoIP - would she have to

| || || | justvoip CLI
I am using JustVoip ( a betamax company) for the first time. I have
set up and verified the number I wish to use as my CLI. The CLI
forwards, to my mobile, when dialled from the softphone. However, it
neither works from voxalot nor an SPA-3000 ATA. There is a 'client'
area on the web site that shows my numbers but no reference to CLI.
Further, I have twice validated my mobile number, it...

| || || | Registration State: Failed - SPA-2002 with voipcheap
I've spent a good bit of time on this and got nowhere.
The SIP unit is OK. It has two lines and I can configure either to work
I'm trying to set up one line to work with voipcheap and can't get the
Registration State (shown under the INFO tab) to change to Registered.
It will give a dialling tone but attempting to make a call produces an
engaged sound and attempting to call in...

Tesco are selling a badged Siemens S450 VoIP/DECT phone for about half
the price of the 'real' one.
Does anybody know if this is locked to the Tesco voip or can it be used
with any sip provider?

Problem is that my windows XP SP2 has crashes twice now while testing this

I've just had a letter off BT saying my line rental is now going up! - got

Well thats it for me - i want to ditch BT and go for voip on my Virgin media

| || || | Low router throughputs (WAN-LAN)
I discovered recently that my VoIP router (SPA-3102) and its
predecessor (SPA-2100) can't route from WAN-LAN faster than about
7.5Mbps. The latter not helped by only having 10Mbps Ethernet
Looking at Tomshardware guide (search for the router charts) it seems
that quite a lot other plain routers, wired and wireless, don't fare
much better. By and large you seem to get what you pay...
