I have been running a S450IP with two handsets flawlessly for six months
without the need for any reboot. It is registering on six VoIP accounts
AND polling a POP3 mailbox every 15 minutes.
One of the VoIP accounts is registering as an extension of my Trixbox
PBX at the office, two are registering with a provider in Italy, two
with Sipgate and one with
An additional PSTN line is connected to the base.
You can see from this that the kit has been rather busy, and still is.
Not a blip in six months, not a missed call, not a single reboot since
install - apart when applying new firmware releases.
I'm on a very good, reliable and not oversubscribed Virgin Cable
broadband, tho. VoIP - generally - and Siemens phones - specifically -
can be VERY temperamental if the broadband you use is pants.
