Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - June 1, 2006

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

June 1, 2006

By Daniel Connor

Welcome to today's edition of the Vonage Voip Forum Digest. There's a lot of news today- not only about Vonage's clarified position in regard to the obligations of those who bought shares in Vonage's Directed Share Program, but about a new Voice Terminal Adaptor from Vonage and D-Link, Vonage E911 now being available to more than 85 percent of subscribers, as well as Vonage's placement in the top half of a prestigious best new product list.  Today we will highlight a Vonage Voip Forum thread on wireless router interference, and another from an expert Vonage Forum Member who has built a new voice mail retrieval utility compatible with Vonage.

In The News

Vonage Closes At $12.02

On Wednesday on the New York Stock Exchange, Vonage stock closed at $12.02 a share. Total trading volume for Vonage Wednesday was 11,028,600 shares.

Vonage Clarifies Position On Directed Share Program Obligations

Vonage issued the following statement to clarify the company's position as previously represented in various media outlets:

"Pursuant to the terms and conditions of our Customer Directed Share Program, if a customer was allocated shares in the Customer Directed Share Program, that customer is obligated to purchase their share allocation from the underwriters," Vonage says.

"To be clear, we have not offered and are not offering to repurchase any of the shares of common stock from our customers," Vonage adds in their statement.

"For further information on our Customer Directed Share Program, including our obligations to our underwriters to cover certain of their losses, please see our prospectus," Vonage explains. "You may obtain a copy of the final prospectus from, Re: Vonage Prospectus, 8 Clock Tower Place, Suite 100, Maynard, MA 01754."

Vonage And D-Link Announce VTA

Vonage and networking solutions provider D-Link have just announced the availability of the Voice Terminal Adaptor (VTA), a two-line Internet Phone Adaptor configured with the Vonage service. 

This new product is available for free after a $49.99 instant rebate, to new subscribers on the Vonage Web site at The only charge will be a $9.99 shipping and handling fee. It will also be available at retail with a suggested retail price of $49.99 with a $40 rebate after 60 days in service.

The D-Link VTA powers up to two lines of Internet telephone service and supports popular features such as call waiting, call forwarding and caller ID with name. The product incorporates Texas Instruments' TNETV1015 Voip gateway chipset.

E911 Now Available To More Than 80 Percent of Vonage Subscribers

Vonage announced today that over 80 percent of its U.S. subscriber lines now have Enhanced 911 (E911) service -- a feature that automatically associates a physical address with the calling party's telephone number.

Over the past two weeks, Vonage has equipped an additional 85 locally-run emergency call centers, in over 30 new counties, with E911 -- bringing the total number of calling centers with emergency 911 service to over 4700.

"Today over 80 percent of our U.S. subscriber lines have full E911 capability," said Jeffrey A. Citron, Vonage's chairman and chief strategist. "Vonage will continue to work with the FCC, regulators, Congress and public safety until PSAPs across the nation are equipped with E911."

Under a new proposal being introduced by Federal Communications Commission Chairman Kevin Martin, Internet phone companies such as Vonage may be compelled to pay directly into the Universal Service Fund, which subsidizes phone services. 

Since Vonage and its customers do not currently pay fees associated with these funds, "It's going to be a huge additional cost, just in terms of creating new systems to track and bill," said Staci Pies, president of the VON Coalition, which represents Internet phone companies. 

Vonage Secures Spot In PC World's "100 Best Products" List

Vonage places #50 in PC World's "100 Best Products of 2006." The list is available online at, as well as in the magazine's July issue.

On The Vonage Voip Forum

First of all, I would like to point to the Vonage Stock Forum as a place where you can read several threads with comments on the Vonage stock situation, and post your own thoughts as well. The direct link to the Vonage Stock Forum is at

Although not everyone feels the way Vonage Forum Member goodness1 does, I thought it would be interesting to cite from  his recent post on this whole issue.

"Furthermore the stock has only been trading for a few days," he writes. "The problem was that people saw dollar signs in their eyes and expected to get a quick profit. Thats not how it works. Any time a stock is purchased, the investor should be purchasing it for the long haul of 3 - 5 years. In 3 -5 years the stock might be worth 50 dollars a share, who knows..."

Once again, I realize that there are lots of views on this Vonage stock issue. You can indeed find lots of them on the Vonage Stock Forum. But as I say in a sticky post in this Forum, if your intensions are to post: "Vonage (and some nasty word)", with no other documented information, please post elsewhere.

If you have something negative to say about Vonage, that is fine. But please back it up with informative facts.

OK, now let us get to the main reason we are here- to discuss issues relevant to the Vonage service that has more than 1.5 million subscribers, and is adding many thousands more per day.

Lots of Vonage Forum Members post questions about various equipment they are, or are intending, to use with their Vonage service. BirdDoh is no exception, starting a thread he's calling Need a New Cordless Phone? - Wireless Router Interference.

"I recently got the Vonage with the free Motorola VT2442 phone adapter," writes BirdDoh, who adds that his current setup is Cable modem, Belkin Pre-N wireless router (for his Sony laptop) and a Panasonic 2.4Ghz cordless phone.

"When I hooked up the phone adapter it works receives and places calls just fine. However, the person sounds choppy," BirdDoh writes. "Example: I asked the person on the other line to count from 1 to 10. It sounded like this 1,4,5,6,9,10. It would cut his other numbers as he was counting."

Next, BirdDoh writes that he then turned off the wireless router completely and hooked up the Vonage adapter directly to his cable modem. "Behold it sounds great, flawless reception," he comments.

"So I found this weird so I go ahead and switch the wireless channels from my Belkin wireless router," BirdDoh points out. "No luck, all it did was ruin the signal for my laptop. So I returned it to the original settings."

This experience drives BirdDoh to ask a couple of questions:

1.) Why would switching to Vonage now affect the sound reception of the Panasonic handset? My wireless router never affected my phone before until the switch to Vonage.

2.) If I do need a new cordless phone which one will avoid this mess?

Then navydavy2001, who happens to be one of our most knowledgeable and helpful members here on the Vonage Forum, responds.

"You need to go buy any 5.8 Ghz phone and you'll be safe," navydavy2001 writes. "Remember too, if you live in close proximity to others, you could potentially pick up interference from them as well."

You know, several of our technically inclined Vonage Forum Members actually have written software applications compatible with the Vonage service. Blakadher makes a post telling us about one he has written. The thread Blakadher describes this is titled Voicemail Retrieval Application.

"Hey folks, I wrote a small application to retrieve voicemail from the Vonage website. It sits in your system tray and checks for new messages at an interval you specify," Blakadher writes. "You can optionally allow the application to download new messages to your PC. If you'd like to give it a look (it's completely free) check out It uses the .Net Framework v2.0 in case that's an issue for you (not sure if there's any ABMers around."

This sounds interesting to Vonage Forum Member brownizs, who posts, "I'll give it a try. 

"One thing that I would like to see implemented, is instead of closing the app when clicking on the X in the right corner, make it minimize to the tray," brownizs adds. "Or even give a check box, that allows a person to check to minimize instead of closing the app."

Blakadher then responds:

"That would be easy to implement. Right now when you minimize it goes to the system tray. There's two schools of thought on using the X to minimize: One says that you shouldn't change the expected behavior of core Windows functionality. The other says it's OK to change it if the new behavior makes sense and won't confuse the users. I'm still undecided on which is right in this particular situation."

And as a follow-up to Blakadher's post, Vonage Forum Member nickname offers some of his own thoughts.

"I'm not a Vonage user yet but plan to get onboard soon. I think your app is a great idea and look forward to giving it a try," writes nickname, who writes that he had to respond to the idea of clicking on the X to minimize versus closing an application. "My opinion is the default behavior should be to fully close the app.

"My recommendation is to establish closing as the default behavior (the one a user is most likely to expect) and allow through some options/preferences setting for the user to modify the behavior to minimize if that's what they wish," he adds.
