Vonage currently does not allow you to have multiple Voip devices (phone adapters, Voip phones, WiFi phones) with the same phone number. Each device must be assigned a unique phone number. Each phone number will have its own pool of outgoing minutes.

I would be nice if they allowed other Voip deviced to be installed as extensions to your single number... but they do not allow it... for now??

no one here knows that sort of thing. but considering the (hundreds of?) thousands of people who want what are now basic services like anonymous caller rejection and still don't have it...

The good news is that you can ring all the phones (or some of the phones, ) by setting a ring list Each phone will have its own number,but can be rung dialing the ring list number.

Multiple comfigurations.

Start a thread on ring lists (call forwarding, simulring, etc) for a pro answer, I set my toll free number to ring my softphone, but I could not give the best advice. If you have multiple lines, you should already have ring properties on your dashboard.

If you get an unlocked wifi phone you can program in the sip credentials from your main account and it will work. The trick is to get Vonage to give you the sip user id, and the password that's needed to log into your account. The SIP 2.0 standards allow multiple device connections on a single ID, and this enables multiple simultaneous calls out on a single account, meaning that multiple people could share the same unlimited account making multiple simultaneous calls out from different IP connections. That is why they lock the devices and don't give you the sip credentials.
If you buy a softphone, they have to give you the credentials to configure the software, and the software allows you to view them. Since you now can make multiple outbound calls from an unlimited number of devices with different IP addresses, they limit your outbound minutes to 500 per month to avoid you giving your credentials out to everyone in the neightborhood so that they can all make unlimited calls all over the country with your one account.
For the foregoing reasons, no Voip provider is likely to give you the sip account credentials unless your on some form of measured service like Gizmo or Stanaphone.

To the original poster: You could get the WiFi phone from Vonage, then use Simulring to make it mostly act like it had the same number. Unfortunately, outgoing calls on the WiFi phone would show the WiFi phone number instead of your main #, but it'd give you most of what you're trying to accomplish.

While SIP may allow multiple connections, Vonage's servers do not. Whichever SIP device happens to be the last to connect to the server is the one which gets the active connection. This gets more complex than it appears, as the Vonage adapters poll the Vonage service every ~30-45 seconds, so even if you had the credentials and the Wifi phone and signed onto the Vonage service, you'd need to disconnect the Vonage adapter if you wanted the WiFi phone to work properly. I speak from experience on this one, had multiple adapters/devices here when I was troubleshooting a few chipset/firmware issues with the RTP300 and all sorts of not-so-fun things happen with multiple adapters connected simultaneously. Additonally, the adapter/device does transmit a "User Agent" string, very similar to what a web browser does, so Vonage would be able to see that you're not using the adapter they assigned you.

Broadvoice & Viatalk allow you to "bring your own device" onto their unlimited plans...BUT, they also have the same 1-device-at-a-time restrictions on their servers that Vonage runs on theirs. Besides that, I'd rather use an AMPS cell phone before ever using Broadvoice. I've also heard that Viatalk does some IP restrictions as well, but not sure what sort of restrictions they have. I'd imagine both providers also only allow one call at a time, otherwise there'd be a ton of people abusing their SIP credentials.

Of course, there's always Asterisk & a couple of FXO cards, then your Voip provider won't be any the wiser to what you're doing as long as you're not racking up minutes galore.

thanks for all the info. i think it is better for me to have a softphone compared to having a wifi phone for now. if i get the basic 500 it's gonna cost me more and I will still have the same calling plan anyway. Relax

You can have both - soft phone and wifi phone. You can get the soft phone SIP credentials and put then into an "unlocked" wifi phone instead of just putting them into the X-Pro soft phone. You could use either device at any time - your PC or the unlocked wifi phone - just that they won't both stay registered at the same time.

From experience using these, it looks like the last device to register is the one that rings on incoming calls. For outgoing, if you "force" the device that you have to "register now" (as in turn it off and back on), then you will disconnect the other device and you can make outgoing calls.

Overall, soft phone accounts work best with just one device, and it is easy to make that device an unlocked wifi phone.
