Hi have been looking at Voip for a while now but am a newby as far as the technology goes. I have basically decided that Vfx will be the Voip I use if I continue but I have a few questions I need answered first.
1 Can the Linksys SPA3102 be configured to deal with local calls like the grandstream ht488. That is recognize a preprogrammed number or prefix (for example 235) and direct the call to the pstn network.
1a Will calls from telecom network (Fxo port ) ring the connected analog phone(fxs port)
2 If I live outside the Auckland telecom free calling area, can I have a Auckland number Thus allowing me to make local calls in Auckland. (At the moment just because of the way telecom has their exchange, my mate 1/2 Km away is a toll call! **** telecom)
3 How much does a second number/line cost?
4 In April if I like Vfx will I be able to move my telecom number to Vfx because of number portability.
Im sorry if some of these questions seem rudimentary but Xnet literature is vague and so is the Linksys website information.
