VoipFone and HandyTone 486 Problem

    Following the setup shown on the VoipFone website, I have configured
    the 486 ATA. After the usual (for me) blood sweat and tears it works -
    almost! But when I dial a number, in the format eg 0044123etc it tells
    me my credit (correctly) then sends busy tone. For any number I try,
    and they aint all busy! But 123 does give me the Speaking Clock. Is
    there some secret code I should be dialling?

    I get the same result, my credit then Busy Tone if I dial a UK number
    as if I was in the UK. Or if I dial 0061etc for an Ozzie number, etc.

    Thanks - I will ask them. I'm quite baffled as I can set the thing up
    OK for VoipBuster, which it seems many people have a lot of trouble to

    Dexter, I used the settings on the VoipFone site for the HandyTone-486
    ATA http://www.voipfone.co.uk/Grandstream_handytone.php except SIP
    Server is sip.voipbuster.co.uk and of course the correct User ID and
    p/w. No other changes. Good Luck!

    1) This morning the 486 will not register with VoipBuster, with the
    same settings as it worked with yesterday. (Their softphone client
    still works fine).

    2) VoipBuster have removed some countries from their FREE list.

    3) The problems with VoipFone and the 486 are unchanged. Yes, no
    problems with their software.

    VoipFone problems resolved!
    I spoke to a very nice guy there he explained my a/c had been disabled
    as the country I live in has been known to harbour dishonest folk
    using stolen credit cards. However, when I assured him I was like the
    driven snow, he enabled the a/c again.
