    Hello all.

    Is there such a thing as a dual DECT phone that has two lines each
    terminating in RJ11 or BT type connectors? I would like to plug one
    cable in my PAP2 for VOIP and the other in my BT master socket and
    control which line to use from the phone.

    I am aware of the Skype Dual Phone but one of the cables is USB to a
    computer, specifically for computer based applications like Skype and
    is therefore not suitable.

    Anyone know of anything out there without paying big bucks?

    239 quid? It'd be cheaper (just) to buy a Fritzbox 7050 and a DECT/ISDN
    cordless phone (the Fritz provides an ISDN connection and can route it
    to both a POTS line and VOIP)

    Basically you have got the wrong ATA for your purposes. Unless you
    need 2 incoming VOIP lines then sell on your PAP2 and get an SPA-3000.
    That has a socket for your BT line as well as one VOIP output. You can
    then use any standard analogue phone. You can have 5 different VOIP
    providers for outgoing calls (one of these is your incoming provider)
    and BT on gateway zero. Configure your dial plan and you won't need to
    switch about between lines as your dial plan will do it all for you
    depending on the number type you dial - but you can switch lines if
    you wish.
    broadbandbuyer seems to be the cheapest around.

    Thank you for this extremely helpful posting. It seems that I can sell
    the PAP2 on Ebay for a reasonable amount and just put a bit extra
    towards the SPA-3000.

    Cheers and thanks,

    I don't know if it's what you want; but if you get an adsl router with
    VOIP port(s), you plug your phone into the VOIP port and have access to
    both the bt line and SIP from the same phone, which could be a DECT; you
    prefix the number with a hash to route outgoing calls one way or the

    Mark Ingle:
    Alas not all VoIP routers have 'PSTN passtrough', apart from the Fritz!Box,
    to my knowledge only the Zyxel 2602HWL can do that, but hasn't got proper
    'dial plan' facility.

    And with SPA-3000 you don't get QoS.

    The Speedtouch 716 has PSTN passthrough too.

    Oh that's interesting; I just assumed they all had that feature, as my
    cheap Zoom X5v does works very well in that fashion. I power the DECT
    phone and router with a little UPS just in case of emergency. The main
    drawback with the model I have is that it appears one cannot configure
    multiple SIP accounts.
