Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - November 4 - 6, 2005

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

November 4, 2005

By Daniel Connor

Welcome to today's edition of the Vonage Voip Forum Digest. Today, we note a leading online gift expert's suggestion of Vonage as a gift for an older family member you might like to stay in more frequent touch with. Today is In The Blogs day, where we look at what some of our favorite bloggers who write about Voip and Vonage are saying. We'll review a Vonage Voip Forum thread about setting up a two-line phone to work with the Vonage service.

Vonage In The Headlines

Online Shopping Site Manager Suggests Vonage As Holiday Gift For Family "Seniors"

The Holiday season is fast approaching. Damian Juarez-Mrazek, senior marketing manager for 77Blue, creators of leading discount online shopping sites, Cashbaq and says  that "there are a range of hot gadgets and technologies available that are easy to use and can help bring the power of technology home to the senior in your family."

One of Juarez-Mrazek's recommendations for gifts to the seniors in your family is Voip service, such as from Vonage. 

"Free telephone? Forget the excuses about having to cut calls short because of costs," says Juarez-Mrazek, saying that a Voip package from a company such as Vonage "can enable the family to talk together, yet remain in a budget."


In The Blogs

We read about 15 Voip and IP-telephony-related Weblogs. Some we read more than others, but we enjoy most of them. Face it, bloggers are opinion-shapers. So today, as we do each Friday, we are going to give you a round-up of what the blogs we read said about Vonage during that week.

Here's what the Voip bloggers have been writing about:

Om Malik of Om Malik's Broadband Blog has posted a Podcast that deals with such subjects as how to make Voip more mainstream. Here's a link to his Podcast

Jeff Pulver of has a lot to say about the CEO of SBC's declaration that Vonage and other Voip providers ought to pay to be carried over his company's broadband connections. Jeff also comes out on the side of United States Senate efforts to make the U.S. Federal Communications rules requiring mandatory enhanced E911 VoIP by November 28 more flexible.

Tom Keating of Voip Blog also writes about the U.S. Senate's attempts to address the E911 issue, but at the same time he says there are more interesting things to talk about. 

Mark Evans of the Mark Evans Blog doesn't make any new posts about Vonage this week, but I recommend that you read some of his posts about a hypothetical sale of Vonage, as well as the more realistic procedure underway to try and make Vonage a publicly traded company.

Russell Shaw of the ZDNet IP Telephony blog explains the strategic industry importance of Vonage Canada's deal to offer its service as part of a packaged offering of broadband Internet access and cable television services from Vancouver, B.C.-based Novus Entertainment.

Andy Abramson of Voip Watch doesn't have any new posts this week, but a couple of posts he put up a couple of weeks ago are worth checking out. In his own inimitable style, calls attention to the fact that Vonage has hired lobbyists to speak on the company's behalf in Washington, D.C. In another one of Andy's posts, he seems to think that Vonage is spending too much money on advertising.

Rich Tehrani of Voip Blog agrees that the U.S. Senate bill easing up on mandatory E911 Voip is a good idea.

On Ted Wallingford's The Voip Weblog, he links to a post he's made from his new book "VoIP Hacks," in which he explains how to record Voip calls. Here's the link to Ted's piece.

Broadband Reports has a growing thread called Vonage finally adds ACR and other privacy features. By the way, ACR stands for Anonymous Call Rejection.

Mark Milliman is an interesting new telecom and Voip blogger I've just come across. He knows a lot about the technology but writes very clearly so that even non-techs can understand. He didn't write about Vonage this week, but is well worth reading anyway. To get to Mark's main blog page, click here.

From time to time, we like to feature interesting and entertaining posts from Blogs that are not necessarily about VoIP, but mention Vonage. This week I will point you to Corey Gouker's Machine Inside the Mind blog, and his post about what happened when he decided to test Vonage's "911" calling capability from his home in Redmond, Washington (also home of a software company you might have heard of). Here's the link to Corey's post, Dialing 911 with Vonage... Interesting experience.

On The Vonage Voip Forum

On Thursday, Vonage Forum Member headphonz started a thread that he named I need a 2 line phone.

"I've got a Vonage business line in my home with a fax set up on line 2 of my (Linksys) RTP300. I bought a 2 line Motorola 5.8ghz but I can't seem to get the 2nd line to work," headphonz writes. "I want to be able to put line 1 on hold and answer line 2 and be able to put line 2 on hold as well." 

Headphonz adds that he has managed to get the line in to L1+L2 plug in the phone but can't seem to get line 2 to answer. 

"Any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong or a suggestion for a better 2 line phone?," he asks. "I'm not attached to this phone because I don't like the display or the buttons but the call quality is perfect so I'm guessing the 5.8ghz is the way to go."

Several Vonage Forum Members offered their help, including NateHoy and ColdGin. Their questions and advice set the stage for a post from Vonage Forum Member Steve48 that offers some interesting advice.

"If I understand this correctly, the L1+L2 plug on the phone would be wired with two pairs to support two lines. The Vonage adapter has two plugs, and each has only one pair, so you would need to split the line from the phone so that you plug into both adapter plugs," he writes. "However, a simple splitter won't do this." 

Steve advises the goal here would be to "get at both pairs coming from the phone and wire each pair to the primary (two center pins) connection on an RJ11 plug to go into the adapter.

"If the phone also has a separate L2 plug on it, your life just got easier," adds Steve, who advises headphonz to "run a standard cord from the L1+L2 port to phone 1 on the adapter and another cord from the L2 telephone port to phone 2 on the adapter and you should be off and running."
