    I have the Siemans S450i but I am not using the phone with it, I use
    my BT Elements phone on the base the Siemens phone that came with the
    base is in the junk cupboard along with my three Starcoms .
    Andy some people are easily satisfied I am far from being easily
    satisfied and if I am not happy with something I have bought it either
    goes back were it came from or if this is not possable in the cupboard
    it goes .

    I've been having a spot of bother with mine.

    I managed to set it up at home and it works fine (including registering
    with the asterisk server that it is intended for).

    This is using an old 3-com dual-band AP.

    I can't get it working with the inteded site, I get errors like WPA
    negotiation failed. (irrespective of which verion of WPA is used on the
    AP and handset).

    I am using v3.99d of the handset firmware and at the site the APs are
    Linksys WAP54Gs(3.1) running DD-WRT. (i've tried the existing v23 and v24).

    The only way that the handsets seem to be able to log into these Access
    Points is if it is configured as an open network.

    Has anyone else had this issue?

    Snags With My One

    I just got one for myself from sipgate...

    Seemed a good idea at the time :stupido:

    Anyway I already have voip at home with a draytek VG2700 router setup with two voip accounts (one on sipgate).

    Created a new account on sipgate for my DP-L10 and set it up okay on the phone.

    Test call to 10000 worked okay but a call to the sipgate account on my draytek did not!

    On checking my draytek it said the registration with sipgate had failed :(

    Thus it seems having the two together does not work :(

    Any ideas?

    Next snag...

    Has anyone managed to send an mms message from this phone via the phone network?

    I have tried with orange and o2 sim cards. With both I can get it to recieve a picture message but if it tries to send one it keeps just sending it over and over again never emptying the out box.

    BTW, phone settings for a Siemens EL71 seem to be compatible with this phone which is not listed on any UK phone site for mms,wap,gprs settings.

    Gone For a RMA

    With a battery standby life of under 24hrs it is useless so am sending it back for a refund....

    Having RMA'd my phone back to Linksys due to what I took to be a faulty battery I have received it back with a new battery (returned along with the original). I took particular care to ensure it received an initial charge of a full 24 hours and that charge seemed to give me about 30 hours on standby. A subsequent charge of four hours or so - the manual says 2.5 hours is enough - gave a full battery indication on the handset but the phone suddenly seemed to power down after about four hours. The battery indicator seems to go from 100% to 80% and then powers off. I am testing it again to get a more precise indication of what battery time to expect.

    I like this phone very much but just wish the battery was more reliable.
    Sipgate now offer a new and more powerful battery for £20 (including shipping) so will I be throwing good money after bad if I buy one...

    The only other problem is that there is only about 1Mg of space for pictures and ringtones.
