Hi all, I am new to Voip, I have ditched the land line and am using naked broadband, and Voip with my phone connected to a Cisco Spa112 2 port phone adapter. It is all setup and working as expected but have had a brainwave but can't find an answer or even know if it is possible, so my question is:

When my home Voip line rings on my cordless phone, is it possible to have my iPhone (on the same wifi network) ring and be able to answer the phone on either handset?

This is something your VoIP provider will have to support.

If you are with 2Talk they have the 'One Number' feature which lets you register your line on multiple clients and have them ring simultaneously.

Easiest option by far is what chevrolux said. If your provider supports it, both devices can connect to the provider, and you can also use the iphone to do the same when not on the same wifi network. There can be some problems with NAT routers when you have two SIP devices behind them, but they can be overcome.

If your provider doesn't support it then it becomes more complicated. Some SIP ATA's allow another SIP devices to connect to them, but I don't know if the SPA112 does. I just bought a Fritz!Box for that purpose. You could also set up an asterisk (or similar) server on your home network which would manage the connection to your provider, and then have both the SPA112 and your iphone connect to that. Again with the right routing or (preferably) a VPN your iphone could connect to that from outside your wifi network.

It's possible on 2Talk with multiple registrations.  I think you can do up to five.

If you put the same credentials in both devices, which ever device registers last will be the one that rings.  Could be fun, the russian roulette of SIP registrations.

I have this working, but it required installing Freeswitch (similar in concept to Asterisk). Very powerful voice switch/server, but requires a bit of work to get it up and running.

Who is your provider?

I'm with 2Talk and as stated in a previous post it's quite easy if are with them. If I wanted to, we can have our home phone, 2 x mobile phones and our laptop all ring at the same time.

Yes on 2talk you can. As nate says you can have 5 devices ringing at the same time. What you do on 2talk is login to your account and click on locate me/one number once there just enable one number. Then each device that you want to use programme your home phone number as follows:- SPA112 0xxxxxxxx, iphone with appropriate app 0xxxxxxxx-1 and any other device up to 5 in total. I have 3 devices working here a SPA2102 as my main phone a SPA922 ip phone with phone number -1  and my android cellphone with app programmed with phone number -2 and all 3 devices ring when an inbound call comes in.

correct me if I am wrong, are the "09846xxxx-1,-2 thru -5" extentions attached to the phone number right?

Ah right. So because Inpire's VoIP product is managed you aren't going to have much luck. Although I note you say it is terminated on a SPA112. Do you have admin access to it? And more importantly have you got the registration details? If yes then FreePBX will be a great place to start. FreePBX is extremely easy to set up and is a great GUI for Asterisk. You can terminate the Inspire line on the FreePBX box and then have your ATA and iPhone as extensions off it.
Just don't do anything like port forwarding 5060 on your router and all will be nice. Just do a bit of reading on FreePBX and you will see why it's a bad thing.

TL:DR; You will get hacked.

Hey kfella2000, you may be able to help me with the 2talk one number setup.  I would like my mobile 2talk app to ring after my primary 2talk number rings for a set period first but it doesn't seem to work for me.  I have my SPA122 number then my mobile app is registering on xxxx-1 but even though I set the call to hunt 15 seconds later on the locate me/one number screen it still seems to ring simultaneous to my home phone. What am I missing - why isn't it delaying?
