I currently have a Grandstream BudgetTone 100 configured for iTalk.   Due to some changes in my employers business I now need to configure this to connect to the office voip system,   I have all the settings I need to do this, except this phone seems to be locked to iTalk as I am unable to access the Advanced Menu.

Is there a simple way of unlocking this ?   I really only want to use it on the "office voip system" for a few weeks until my new LinkSys 4 line phone arrives.

Otherwise,  it will just be thrown in the garbage.


thanks

Have you tried a factory reset?

Yes,  that was the first thing I tried.   It obviously does re-set itself and re-boot,  but I'm still locked out of changing the settings I need to access.

You did a full reset by entering the MAC address from the bottom of the phone? That should completely reset the phone.

Yeap,  a full reset by entering the MAC address (from the bottom of the phone).  

It's as if the administration password (apparently iTalk set this) is not changed by a full reset

Ahh.. Been a long time since I played with one of those. I forgot they were locked by iTalk. From memory the password is "budgieclub" (without the quotes)

WOW,  after numerous "factory resets" I disabled the IP reservation I had in my router (suggested by a network engineer friend), did a reset (not connected to the network) and suddenly I have access to the advanced settings I needed.

WOO HOO  :)

Thanks for you help though.
