It presumably has RJ12 ports for connecting regular analogue phones and will act as an ATA so you can use a VoIP provider for phone calls.

Hi,
What make and model are you talking about?
Most manuals can be downloaded from the net - have a look - if you don't come right let me know and i will see what i can get my hands on.
Might help a bit more if you have the manual 

Cheers
Riaan

hi sbiddle/VoIPGear,

the model i've got it Thomson TG787. found a link here: http://www.thomsonbroadbandpartner.com/dsl-modems-gateways/products/product-detail.php?id=157

so it can be used for voip service, does that mean i don't have use telecom's phone service, instead i get a voip provider to provide phone service? what benefit would i get from that?

thanks guys

The benefit is you will have a phone service over VoIP rather than paying your current provider, assuming your device is unlocked and allows editing of the SIP settings.

If you want to get rid of your Telecom line you'll have to move to a naked ADSL plan (ie broadband line with no phone) which could well mean changing ISP if you're with one now that doesn't offer naked ADSL plans.
