Hi all,

I have a Cisco 7940 phone which I have been told dont play well with SIP. I had it working well with 2talk but after a few months of non use (and in that time I went to 2talk plus and a fiber connection) I plugged it in to use it again, still with 2talk.

I now get a very annoying cut out every few seconds during a call.

To rule out 2talk as the culprit, does anyone feel like letting me try it out with their account breifly, which should not be a 2talk account.

PM me if you can help.

Thanks

-Al

I find it hard to believe that 2 talk would be the culprit. All the trouble I have seen around here have been hardware issues rather than the 2talk platform.

Cheers, Matt.

for free sip servers try this link http://www.cs.columbia.edu/sip/servers.html.
The voice drop out is possibly QOS, Packet Compression, or somthing simalar.
