Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - September 27, 2007

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

September 27, 2007

By Daniel Connor

Welcome to today's edition of the Vonage Voip Forum Digest. 

First and foremost, we'll catch up on key news about Verizon's patent suit against Vonage, as well as reexamine Vonage's side in Tuesday's court decision about SprintNextel's infringement lawsuit against Vonage. Then we'll go straight to two Vonage Forum threads, one about Vonage portable equipment and there's this other thread I write about concerned with a phone number transfer issue. We'll also check in on Vonage's stock price.

In The News

In light of this week's patent decisions involving Vonage, I thought it would be useful once again to republish this news:

Vonage Receives a Break In Verizon Patent Suit Dispute

Vonage announced on Wednesday that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit today partially remanded a March 8th jury verdict in the U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Va. that the company infringed on three Verizon patents. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit remanded the infringement verdict on the 880 patent and affirmed the verdict on the 574 and 711 patents. Further, the Court of Appeals vacated the entire award of $58 million in damages and the 5.5% royalty. The Court of Appeals remanded the case to the U.S. District Court and directed that the court retry those aspects of the original case.

In light of the workaround technology that Vonage has developed and deployed, today's decision is not expected to have an adverse impact on Vonage's business and customers will continue to enjoy the same great service they have come to expect from Vonage. Workarounds to the 711 patent and the 574 patent have been deployed for awhile.

"We thank the appellate court for its thoughtful consideration of the merits of our case," said Vonage's Chief Legal Officer, Sharon O'Leary. "We are pleased with the decision to vacate the 880 patent and the damages. However, Vonage remains confident that it has not infringed on the 880 patent -- a position we will continue to vigorously assert and look forward to presenting at trial."

O'Leary continued, "In the meantime, it's business as usual. We have had our workarounds for the 711 and 574 patents in place for some time and will remain focused on providing a great customer experience."

Vonage To Appeal Court Decision

This news broke Tuesday afternoon, but it is so important I thought I would update it and then repeat it.

Vonage announced that it will seek to overturn Tuesday's U.S. District Court jury verdict in a patent infringement lawsuit brought by Sprint Communications Company L.P. and continue focusing on providing reliable, quality digital phone service.

Vonage said:

Federal court jurors in Kansas City, Kansas ruled in favor of Sprint, finding that Vonage had willfully infringed Sprint's patents in providing its Voip telephony services, and awarding $69.5 million in damages, which the jury found to be five percent of Vonage's revenues over the infringing period. Vonage will ask the court to set aside the verdict, and if it is not granted, will vigorously pursue an appeal of the decision, including the underlying issue of liability and the willfulness aspect. Vonage believes any damages awarded are inappropriate. In addition, we will seek to develop technological workarounds that don't infringe on Sprint's patents.

"We are disappointed that the jury did not recognize that our technology differs from that of Sprint's patents," said Sharon O'Leary, chief legal officer for Vonage. "Our top priority is to provide high-quality, reliable digital phone service to our customers. Vonage has already demonstrated that it can keep its focus on customers and on its core business while managing ongoing litigation," she added.

On The Vonage Voip Forum

New Vonage Forum Member VTITGuy had the idea to start a new Vonage Forum thread which he went about naming, Need help with F3000 configuration.

Here's the post in which he opened that thread:

"I've been trying all day to get my UTStarcom F3000 working with my Vonage softphone account. The phone never registers. I can successfully connect with the Vonage softphone so I assume my firewall is not the issue. I did a factory reset on the phone before configuring. The SIP configuration from the web interface is:

SIP Terminal Use Outbound Proxy: Yes
SIP Terminal Use Register: Yes
SIP Profile Name: 12125551212
SIP Proxy Domain Name:
SIP Proxy IP Address:
SIP Proxy Port: 5061
SIP Register Domain Name:
SIP Register IP Address:
SIP Register Port: 5061
SIP Authentication String: 12125551212
SIP Terminal User Name: 12125551212
SIP Terminal Password: ********
SIP Terminal Port: 5061
SIP Terminal Use Null Packet: No
SIP Terminal Use DNS: Both Register and SIP proxy use DNS

The only other setting I've changed (besides the wireless) is the Display Name = 12125551212. Everything else is default. I've triple checked my phone number and password. I'm using firmware 5.91tt. Any suggestions on what needs to be changed?"

But then he quickly follows that with another post in which he writes:

"Never mind, I found the problem. The settings work. The phone was not getting the DNS servers from DHCP. Don't know why, everything else does. Once I manually entered the DNS servers, the phone registered and I could make and receive calls."

Now even though VTITGuy essentially answers his own question, he still gets some interesting responses.

"I thought that Vonage only worked with Vonage-branded F1000," writes new Vonage Forum Member tmoney. "Please clarify if this is true. If the F3000 works with Vonage, where can I purchase the phone, and how easy is it to configure?"

Vonage Forum Member howiewifi answers tmoney's question by writing this post:

"The F3000 works well with a Vonage soft phone account. On that account, you get the details that you need to configure the phone so you can use it. The F3000 will not work with a Vonage primary account, since Vonage does not give you the information that you need to set it up.

"The phone is fairly easy to configure - you can find the configuration here (same configuration as unlocked/UTStarcom branded F1000), or at the UTStarcom forum.

"You can buy the F3000 at as well as other places on line. I don't think that anybody sells WiFi phones in retail stores."

And then VTITGuy replies, "tmoney - I had the phone special ordered from one of my vendors (to use up a credit) but you can get them online. The settings in my first post are all I needed to configure. There is a web interface on the phone that makes it much easer to setup."

Number transfer caused DSL service to be disconnected! is a new Vonage Forum thread and it has been launched by Vonage Forum Member njvcl.

He writes:

"Few weeks ago we signed up for Vonage. There were some issues initially with the number transfer from MCI (Account name mismatch), and we were using a virtual phone number for a week or so. Finally Vonage said it was resolved and that Sept 7 would be the official transfer date.

"Sept 7 comes, and what happens - nothing works!. I've called Verizon several times, and they say my DSL service got deactivated and I need to reorder. And in doing so I cannot get the old plan I had (which had a lower rate). They are charging me for a more expensive plan.

"I think the number transfer triggered the DSL being disconnected. Now, why did the DSL service get disconnected? Is that because it was "linked" to my old phone service provider (MCI)?

"And what options do I have now? Vonage needs the DSL line, but I have no DSL line in the first place.

"I have no phone and internet service at home for a week now! Please help."

First to try to do just that is Vonage Forum Member tmbeem.

"I don't have DSL service, but from the other posts on this subject I can say that if you only had ONE telephone number and that number was attached to your DSL line, then yes, porting THAT number will disconnect your DSL line since porting will result in your old phone company disconnecting your telephone service," he writes. "An option might be to ask your DSL provider if they have "dry loop" or "naked" DSL. That should be a considerably less costly option than a full-fledged telephone line. 

"I know this isn't much help, but like I said I'm only sharing with you remembrances of previous posts on this issue," tmbeem adds. "Hopefully someone more knowledgeable will help you with this problem, and that it gets fixed quick."

Vonage Stock Report

Today on the New York Stock Exchange, Vonage stock trading was still being affected by this week's patent decisions. Vonage stock closed at 99 cents a share, up three cents (+3.13%)  from Wednesday's 96 cents a share close but then again, that closing price was seven cents higher than today's lowest Vonage stock price and that was 92 cents a share. Reflecting a large amount of activity, total Vonage shares traded on today attained a total of 2,852,000 shares.

Once again, our Vonage Stock Forum can be reached from this link.  

That's what's hot about Vonage today. Check with us tomorrow for our next edition of the Vonage VoIP Forum Digest.
