 I just set up my Huawei HG556a for VOIP with 2Talk, but had problems dialling out. It ended up the issue was the digit map and thought I would share with others.

 To setup your Huawei HG556a follow instructions on 2Talks site per this link:-

 Log back into modem, select Voice, Phone and replace Digit Map field with this:-


Save and Reboot for change to take affect.

This digit map immediately dials local numbers, national numbers, emergency number, numbers ending with # and dials all other numbers after 3 second timeout.

 Hope this is helpful for somebody.

Interesting Info for those of concern!
I think there was a tutorial somewhere with this on it i saw a while back.
@johnr probably wants to be in the VOIP section.

 I have since discovered that above digit map doesn't like dialling 0800 and 0508 numbers. Above instructions still same but here is amended digit map:-


P.S. Although not a Vodafone service the Huawei HG556a is a Vodafone product and understand not sold by anyone else (except 2nd hand), so I'm happy to leave in this section.
