This is just too handy to remain hidden away in a comment so I thought I’d make it a proper post on it’s own. Gigaset Communication‘s Tony Stankus responded to a question asked in a comment on my A580IP review. The question was, how to setup the A580IP for use with Gizmo5 and Google Voice?
Three things you need to set up to have Google Voice on the Gigaset.
Here is 1)
On the handset, go to:
Menu (right softkey)
Connection Wizard [enter system PIN = 0000]
Do you have a code for auto-configuration? [select “no”]
Select VoIP Provider? [select “yes”]
scroll to USA and select “ok”
scroll to Gizmo5 and select “ok”
for Authentication Name, enter your Gizmo5 telephone number (e.g. 17471115555) and select “ok”
for Authentication Password, enter your Gizmo5 password and select “ok”.
Thanks for taking the time to fill us in! Isn’t it great when a manufacturer takes an interesting what people want to do with their gear?
In a few days when I’m back in my office I’ll take some screen shots of doing this using the web GUI instead of the handset.
