    It seems to me that either you have been extraordinary unlucky, or
    Viopfone and the Gigaset just don't get on with each other.

    I have had a S685IP for about a couple of months, and am using it
    with both Sipgate and an experimental unit with my own company.

    It has, so far, 'just worked'. The only problem I've had was with
    the NAT refresh and my company experimental box, which doesn't seem to
    like NAT refresh at all! Fortunately I was able to switch this off,
    as I have real IPs at home and don't use NAT.

    You might want to acquire the 301 D from siemens, it has most of the
    S685IP functions,
    and you can decide for yourself which handsets you buy, since the 301
    D is a basestation for 70 euro,
    but is a great choice, if you allready have dect handsets.
