    Hi,
    Are there any (or many) makes of hardware IP phone that allow you to
    enter a text domain name, and then do a DNS to get the IP to call.

    I've checked out the manual for the BudgeTone-100, and it only mentions text
    encoding the first user@ part of the address.

    It would seem to me useful, for example I could tell my customers with IP
    phones that they could call me direct on Giving out a static
    IP dosn't seem like a smart move incase I need to change my ISP.

    Maybe I'm missing the point but the idea of direct IP calling seems to me
    better than using a 3rd-party service like FWD.

    Thanks

    Ed

    Ed:

    Cisco phones support this. The FQDN can be an A record
    or SRV record and point to a single phone or proxy
    server.
