My in-laws use Yealink devices on Skinny FWA - that uses the Spark network I think?

 

It runs on UDP port 50060 (to bypass NAT SIP ALG) with 2talk providing the termination.

Yes a 3rd party provider will work but I get the impression from the list that OP wants to use Spark.

I'm not aware of any VoIP phones any longer than include a desk + cordless. The only option that I've ever seen with that was a very old Mitel. It's just not something that there's is any point in becayse you'd have two phones if you wanted a desk + cordless.

Gotcha. Then my guess is that you probably actually need PoTS phones to plug into the router's ATA, and the Unidens that Spark had in stock weren't 'VoIP phones'.

Ohhh, my bad, can anyone change the title to be more accurate, I thought a phone that connected to a router was a VOIP phone.

You're just after a regular analogue phone, not a VoIP phone. The only options on cordless phones will typically be 2.5mm headset or Bluetooth.
