I am a Spark customer and my plan gives me free national calls. I am also a 2 Talk customer. How can I set up my Gigaset phone to make local calls and national calls with Spark ( which are free) and other calls like international and mobile calls which I pay for with 2 Talk? The reason I am keeping my Spark number is to keep my listing in the White Pages

As far as I remember the gigasets don't have any sort of LCR table (least cost routing), but I vaguely remember there being an access code for each 'provider' you have registered.

 

So you would have the PSTN line as the default, but when you want to call mobile/international you dial a prefix which routes your call over the VoIP provider.

 

....purely guessing though, haven't had the misfortune of having to play with Gigaset for a while now.

Yip they have a prefix for routing. I'd never recommend anybody buy one now either, there are far better phones out there.

There's a dialing plan options in the web GUI. You can enter the prefixes (and specific numbers) that should go via a particular connection. You can also press and hold green/dial and manually select the line you want.

2talk does offer an option to publish your phone number in the Whitepages.

The white pages allows a single listing per customer for free - it makes no difference what provider you're with.
