Occasional ring oddity with SPA3000

    I have an annoying anomaly with my Sipura SPA3000 - It makes the phone
    ring just once occasionally.

    My set up is PSTN line connected to PSTN line (No SIP connection on PSTN
    line) JustDialVoIP connected to LINE 1 with VoIPBuster on Gateway 4 and
    Sipgate on Gateway 2. I also have UK ringing tones set up on REGIONAL.
    I have PSTN ring Thru Line 1 enabled.

    I can receive PSTN and VoIP Calls on JDV with no problems I can also
    make PSTN and all 3 SIP accounts using dial plans without problems.

    However, the phone rings just once every now and again; sometimes it's
    several days without it happening and then sometimes 2 or 3 times within
    as many hours. (And it's damned annoying when it happens in the middle
    of the night!!).

    There are no call details for the stray call on the INFO Page, neither
    is there any info on 1471 on the PSTN line.

    Anybody had this experience or know where to start looking in the myriad
    of settings on this box.

    Thanks for ay help,

    David

    It might be MWI - Message Waiting Indication. Do any of your VoIP accounts
    support this..? Do you have a voicemail message waiting somewhere..?

    Don't think it can be cos there's no messages (see answer below).

    >Do any of your VoIP accounts

    Yes. JDVoIP does.

    >Do you have a voicemail message waiting somewhere..?
    >


    There are no voicemail messages waiting at JDVoip (and never have been
    since I deleted my first test messages months ago).

    On the SPA3000 LINE 1 tab I will change MWI Serv: to 'no' and see what
    happens.

    There is also a VMWI Serv: entry which is 'yes' - don't know what that's
    for!!

    Thanks,
    David

    Hi David ,

    I am also using SP3000.
    I am new with this hardware and manual is extremely difficult for me
    (no way to find any manual in Italian).

    Of course I don't have any answer to yr post , sorry!
    but I have just read that you can do fabulous things with Sipura.
    (receive from one account and call via GW1 and so on...)

    May I ask you to send me yr configurations and dial plans.
    This will help me a lot to better understand!
    Of course I will use different providers... but will be anyway a starting
    point !!

    Thanks in advance !

    Ciao + regards.

    Lorenzo

    That sounds like my problem - looks as though I need to contact my
    supplier for a replacement.

    SIP phone or POTS phone w adaptor?

    Hi All

    Can anyone tell me why I might be better off with a SIP phone rather
    than getting an adaptor and my choice of POTS phone? Looking at what's
    available the adaptor+POTS phone route appears to be cheaper / more
    flexible. Or am I missing something?

    TIA

    Nothing that I can think of, who told you otherwise..?

    The only advantages I can see to a dedicated IP phone is portability, i.e.
    if you wanted to take one on trips and plug it in at your destination,
    rather than mucking about with an ATA and a separate phone.

    Some business-oriented IP phones will also handle up to 4
    accounts/numbers, whereas most ATA's are limited to two. There are 4-port
    ATA's available, but they cost several arms and legs..!

    I like the flexibility of an ATA, I have the analogue outputs of mine fed
    into my PABX as "exchange" lines so any extension on the system can use
    them.

    SIP phone or POTS phone + adaptor?

    Hi All

    Looking at the specs and prices, it seems to me that I'd be better off with
    an adaptor + my choice of POTS phone rather than a SIP phone. Or am I
    missing something?

    Cheers

    Some SIP phones have a built-in switch so that you can plug in your
    sip-phone into the network and your computer into the sip phone,
    obviating the need for a router/switch in places where you get more
    than one IP out of the wall socket.

    BTW: Please do not kidnap other peoples' threads - you may wind up with
    a DSKM - Distinguished Stefan Kaniuk Medal, 2'nd class, if you do.

    why take two boxes into the shower if you only need one ? (as it
    were). Less clutter and wires, one PSU instead of two.

    If your sole need is a fixed wired phone to sit on a desk, then the
    SIP phone suits. With an ATA you can change your mind about the phone
    or go DECT or whatever.
