Does anyone know if the 0800Voip are still open for business?
http://www.800voip.co.nz/info/contact-us

I've sent them a few messages, and left a voicemail and nothing back.  If not, can anyone recommend any reputable and cheap outlets to purchase voip wireless phones?

http://nicegear.co.nz/ - seems to have as pretty good rep. Not sure if prices are the cheapest, but it might be worth paying a little extra.

Thanks sidefx! Our prices should be pretty competitive - if not let us know.

I'm not sure about the original question.

I can also supply IP cordless phones; though happy to support Hads for just straight sales. I tend to do more supply + install package.

Thanks for the input guys. Just tossing up getting a stand alone VoIP phone like gigaset 610ip or just an ATA device into the new vodafone vdsl modem.

If it were me I would go with a straight VoIP phone rather than an ATA, they do cost a bit more but you get more features like wideband audio.

There's a couple options, Gigaset as you mentioned, Yealink W52P or the Panasonic DECT range.

Yah I am really considering doing away with our ATA's and getting 2 Dect Voip Phones at home. Though I just spent $80 on a wireless headset for our Unidens..

It's a decent sized house and sound quality and features are a big deal, happy for a recommendation (and a good price).

What happened to the Snoms? Pricey, but sound quality excellent.

The snom m9? They are okay, I actually replaced ours with a Yealink W52P a while back and found the sound quality to be an improvement.

I've never thought the snom DECT phones were quite as nice as their desktop ones.

Got a Gigaset A510IP from nicegear and it's been going for 6 months without a hitch.

Agreed.  The desktop phones are good and solid, the DECT phones seemed like they were rushed and a bit of an after thought.

I found the m9r's to be reasonable.

I've deployed a few Yealink W52P and they are certainly a good phone for the price. Just found their HD-Voice quality sounds slightly "harsh". Still beats anything plugged into an ATA port and if you are hard of hearing, volume is good on these too.

Big price difference buying US vs NZ on the Yealink's I have to say. Are they powered by AC wall adapter?

WARNING don't even think about buying US cordless phones. These so often run on different frequencies and can get you into trouble from the MED (and of course @JohnR ). There have been a few instances like this, e.g. someone who thought they'd save $$ buy the US version of Snom's. The phones caused disruption to mobile phone towers. Very expensive lesson.
Same goes for baby monitors, or anything with RF really.

Base station by AC adaptor or PoE
Handset charger bases by AC adaptor

Think you can also get a repeater for large home / office
