Excellent buy

I spend over a £100 last month on the Siemens S65 twin set.

Have all my IDD routed through Voip using voiptalk.

Also can have effectively 6 incoming lines, with on hold calling simultaneous calls.

Sorry, I must be missing something here.

What on earth has the Seimens twin set in common with this Panasonic single phone?

Is there some relevance?
It appears this Panasonic phone is a rather UNUSUAL VoIP phone.

For a start it is nothing to do with Skype - which some people imagine is all there is to do with Voice over Internet - which is good in my view as that's an overpriced eBay subsidiary.

However the Panasonic also has nothing to do with most VoIP as it appears to be 100% tied in to just one VoIP provider - ie "joip" a provider I'd never heard of before, offering both PAYG and subscription packages.

"Free VoIP calls" are of course ONLY between joip/Globarange phones which is the sort of free VoIP calls that just about every VoIP provider offers!

Only 1p/minute for UK calls so not OTT but I'm now puzzled as to whether this phone will ONLY work with joip or with VoIP SIP providers eg Betamax JustVoip etc - it appears ONLY to work with joip so potentially if/when you get fed up of their pricing, or if they go out of business, then your VoIP service would also vanish into a black hole :(

If the price drop is due to Panasonic already 'dumping' these units then that could be bad writing on the wall already?

I found the phone manual(s) at:
John Lewis must have found some of these in a corner.

They were dumping these in the January 'Clearance'.

I recall having a search on t'internet last time around - they can't be hacked to work with any other VoIP provider IIRC.
Just a PS on this topic as frankly dont think this Panasonic "joip" box is worth having (although Panasonic "make exceedingly good phones").

If you DO want to add VoIP phone service to your EXISTING DECT PHONE then I would definitely recommend the TRUST USB Internet Phone Station aka ST-1200 - can be found on eBay for under a tenner if you search carefully.

It's excellent if (1) your DECT base station is near your (2) broadband PC with a (3) spare USB.

You use the Trust gizmo to ADD VoIP into your DECT phone via just pressing the STAR key on your phone. Requires freeware running on your PC ie the Yealink VoipBusterMate for windows and a subscription to one of the various Betamax services - eg the JustVoip (download the Windows JustVoip freeware software to integrate with the Yealink) is quite a good Betamax brand for UK users with 120 days FREE calls to loads of countries including the UK and cheap UK MOBILE calls too - all from depositing 10 pounds or euros with them (that gets used to pay for charged calls).

I used my Trust Internet Phone gizmo successfully for about a year before I progressed to a hardware based VoIP modem/router (ie a black box that does the VoIP work instead of USB and my PC USB/software)
They are both DECT phones with VOIP support.
