PostPosted: Sat Oct 28, 2006 8:59 pm    Post subject: IP Phone to regular phone Reply with quote Back to top

I am in the process of setting up my new Vonage service and am trying to decide between a standard cordless phone or one of the IP based phones out there.

Not sure if it matters, but I have a cable model from Time Warner and I have a Time Warner Voip phone. I have tested the Vonage line using a regulare phone and it works fine.

Any issues hooking up an IP phone to a newtwork that already has a Voip service? I suspect no, but want to aks.

Is there any difference is sound quality or other notable difference between and IP phone and a regular phone?

Thanks in advance for sharing your insight.

-John

I am looking at the two offered on the Vonage site for now. But my question is more generic. In gerneal, which phone will have better sound quality? A tradtional phone used on a Voip service or an IP phone used on an IP service. My gut is there is not too much of a difference, but if the IP does provide for better sound, I will then get good IP phone...

One other question:

With the IP phone, I think I can connect the phone anywhere on my netork - it does not have to be plugged into the Vonage device, right?

With an IP phone, I can go Cable Modem->Router->IP phone.

In this configuration, where do I put the Vonage device?

Does the IP phone eliminate the need for the Vonage device?

If, how does the phone get the configuration information it needs to us the Vonage line?

use a regular phone with a Vonage adapter/router, they are considerably cheaper and there is no difference in sound, if anything a good cordless on the Voip service is better i find, just make sure it is 5.8ghz so that there is less inteference,


note: if you choose an IP phone it has to say Vonage on the box, they do not allow you to use other Voip provider phones or IP phones off the shelf

The phones offered by Vonage have built-in ATA.

The phone is already integrated with the Vonage device.

It is the same as if you got the Vonage ATA and bought your own cordless phones. For max. flexibility, I would suggest getting just the ATA from Vonage, and choose a separate router, wired phones, and cordless phones.

Agreed, stay away from the IP/wifi integrated phones, like the VTech IP8100-1, WiFi UTStarcom F1000, or Uniden UIP1869V.

Get a solid phone adapter like the dlink VTA, Linksys PAP2 or the new motorola VT2142 or 2442. Then plug in your favourite cordless or regular phone. If you need to connect multiple phones you can wire your house, or just get a 2-in-1 or 3-in1 phone plug to connect to your phone adapter which splits the one jack into 2 or 3 respectively. I use a 2-in-1, and have one desk phone and one cordless (well the cordless has two handsets, but only uses one jack).

I agree as well. Emac, think of a separate adapter, like the D-link VTA, plus an ordinary phone as constituting an IP phone. Carry the combination anywhere you like and plug it into your network anywhere you like, just as with an integrated IP phone. The difference is flexibility.
