moto ata 186 w/vonage

Discussion in 'VOIP' started by Henry Cabot Henhouse III, Dec 13, 2005.

  1. Is the caller id that is sent stored in the actual ATA?
    If so, how does one change it?

    Thanks

    In general, data for direct SIP calls (eg. between two SIP phones)
    without any PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) gateway between,
    will show the name that is configured into the ATA. Calls made to the
    PSTN will show the name that some central database has for that phone
    number. Changing the value in your ATA won't have any effect for
    these calls.

    It is ironic that free direct calls between two SIP phones will tend
    to be better quality and more featureful (like being able to correctly
    display each family members name in the caller-id) than calls made
    through a for-pay voip-to-pstn gateway service.

    If you bought an ATA that comes password-protected you are probably
    out of luck. Some services will unlock it for you when you leave for
    some nominal fee (like $15). Others will charge you extra if you
    don't return the unit (even though you might have paid a fee to "buy"
    the unit from a store. Go figure.)

    Once you know the password, or if it is a fresh unit from the factory
    without a password, you just point your browser at the ATA's IP
    address, enter the admin password and change the configuration. Some
    units like the Sipura have hundreds of configurable items. Others
    like the Grandstream line have maybe two dozen items you get to tweak.
    Obviously it helps to have the ATA's manual. Both Sipura and
    Grandstream have some of their manuals online in pdf form.
