He didn't provide any support for this. He told me to email 2talk, but I got no reply
Can anybody here confirm this? Or is there a workaround that works?
Company A not supporting a rivals products/services...?
In reality, it works (and continues to do so - I'm running this exact setup). It was pretty painless to get going. If you have problems with it, post here. I'll go have a look at our setup (from memory, go into telephony and then add a new number, then plug in the details for 2talk).
Yes it will work but you can't expect to get any support from 2degrees for such a setup, hence their comments.
2talk don't respond to emails? You can form your own opinion of their product and support based on the hundreds of similar such comments on here. If you need assistance they're probably not the best option for a VoIP provider.
The others in this thread are correct, 2talk VOIP will work on our modems, however support through our helpdesk is limited for this, the team will be able to help with general questions about the device itself, but aren't able to help set it up or anything like that. It is pretty easy to set up, you'll just need to add a new line under Telephony and plug in the details that 2talk provide.
harrylin: They are the cheapest. Cheapest VoIP, plus cheapest broadband.
So as @michaelmurfy already asked, why not just port your number to 2degrees?
(I use 2talk, and have for a long time, but that's mainly because snap didn't offer voip when I signed up. I do like having them seperate now, but if you're not sure about configuration, etc I would still think keeping them on the same provider makes sense...)
Fair enough then :)
I wouldn't imagine you'll have any issues. I've been running 2talk for my voip with snap/2degrees and through 2 different fritzboxes and it all worked flawlessly.
