Some reaction to the snom review is starting to trickle in. One reader, Lonnie Abelbeck, noted that he had an issue with daylight savings time on his snom m3. He sent the following message;
I read your review of the SNOM m3 in SmallNetBuilder, excellent review. I recently purchased the same m3 setup you have, very pleased as well.
One issue that I think I solved is the daylight savings settings, the defaults did not look correct to me.
For help, I referenced Polycom’s docs using the same platform…
“Provisioning and Configuration Guide for the SoundPoint IP 200W”
Here’s a screen shot of his solution.
Thanks Lonnie! I didn’t know that the phone had been offered by Polycom previously. Their documentation may not be dead accurate with respect to the m3 as there are likely differences in firmware.
However, it does tend to indicate that certain things, like remote provisioning of the contact list, are less likely to be implemented in future firmware upgrades. I suspect that if it possible then it would have been done already as part of the original manufacturers development process.
My wife this week noticed that there’s a problem with using the handsets in our master bedroom when the base is located back in my office. The distance between these two locations is just about as far as can be across the property. Though two exterior walls as well. I expect that if I relocate the base into the center and rear portion of the house it will cover the property better. That’s a minor project for this weekend.
