The 659 has an in-built capability to handle a VoIP account - all you needed to do was configure 2talk on the the modem/router itself and plug a normal phone into it.

 

It didn't work if you had VDSL though. ADSL and Fibre were ok. Huawei did get involved and I'm not 100% sure this is still a problem.

 

Even if you have this modem on VDSL, you could still get an ATA or a VoIP phone and use that as opposed to the in-built functionality.

 

 

Not a vodafone supplied HG659, the internal voip firmware has been disabled. Will only be enabled when you get a bundled connection with them.

 

 

The Vodafone supplied HG659 doesnt have its voip firmware disabled. I have one and I have 2talk working on it no problems.

Mine has, vodafone have advised me that when and If they switch me to VOIP they enable the VOIP firmware from there end. I'm a cable docsis 3.1 customer.
