Spent a few ours looking over the Siemens Gigaset Cordless IP phone rage.
The 580 and A58H system/handset seem quite easy to get. But they're quite old.
My understanding is that 610/610A/C61H is being tele-permitted and expected to be available in NZ sometime next year.
I believe the 610/610A comes with a newer base the N300 IP.
I know a number of geekzone members have bought systems from overseas.
Does anyone know which 'work' in NZ. i.e. use the permitted/legal DECT frequencies? Finding it a bit difficult to find information on this.
May just end up waiting for the 610 which seems quite nice. Though think I'd prefer one of the higher end handsets e.g. S79H or SL78H.
Quite difficult working out what's what... this is the best resource I've found so far but it's US specific so somewhat incomplete.
Any other options?
Seen one or two, but they're more expensive or don't seem any better. Then many business orientated which are $1000+.
Reading other posts this is probably the preferable route vs normal cordless phones and an ATA.
(Don't have any existing cordless phones.)
Though I think I'd like to keep my SPA942 for office use, which is going to be a bit problematic on iTalk (only one device can register). Probably going to have to use Linksys SPA-9000 IP PBX (bought a while ago but haven't played with yet) to get the wired and cordless phones to work...
Comments and thoughts appreciated.
