From Alex at 5/11/12 12:07 AM

Q: Hi! Please explain me - can I use this phone ONLY as a Voip phone? I have an Internet connection but I DON'T have a fixed-line connection. Will it work only through Internet using my SIP number?
Thanks!!

A: The A580IP can be used with either SIP or a traditional analog connection.

Q: I have a four year old phone with VoIP calls only. Recently in evening time I cannot hear parts of incoming conversation while they can hear me. This can occur for 3 to 10 seconds and numerous times during a twenty minute call. A suggestion was to restart the phone. Are there settings on phone I can check as currently very unsatisfactory

A: I'm sure there are some settings you can check on the phone, but since every phone is different, I am unable to tell you exactly where. This may not be a "phone issue" though. It could be an issue with other equipment or an internet issue if you are using a hosted service. Maybe the phone needs to have the firmware updated, or even replaced.
Here is a link to the manual for that phone:

Great
I bought this phone for € 40 at a Belgian supermarket, and I love it. I use the landline connection for connecting to may Ziggo cable modem, and the IP phone connection to my company's asterisk server. Sofar, everyhing works flawlessly.

Poor choice
I goth this phone based on good reviews and have only had problems. The menu structure is definitely not logical leading to family members always asking me how to make / get a call.

To have two people on the same call, you have to put the call on hold, intercom the other handset then hit conference -- OK for an office, not for a phone.

Finally several handsets constantly lose connection with the base and several sound tinny

I definitely would not recommend this phone.

awesome
I paid much more than that for mine, but I love it, it's an amazing piece of hardware, my only real problem with it is the news feed down the bottom of the screen saver, always messes up and bugs me.

Not having Skype is NOT a Fatal Flaw...
Someone else posted a comment that this phone does not support Skype, and it is a fatal flaw... LOL! Of course it doesn't it's an IP Phone. Skype is garbage, and they are the "odd man out", not the other way around. SIP is the protocol of serious carrier class VoIP services.

This phone is great! Nothing flawed, just this is not a Skype phone. Thank God!

Great phone with a fatal flaw
Great phone with good range however this phone will not work with Skype & doesn't have a headset jack or lighted keys. Web interface is slow, but functional. Check your VOIP provider to make sure their service will work with this IP phone before buying

Great phone!
PROS:
Good sleek design, pretty durable. Setup to my sip server was a breeze. Since I connected it to my server, I could not use the handset's built-in wizard setup. Web interface for configuration is clean and straightforward with advanced options if needed. Failover to PSTN is virtually transparent, although it is not enabled at initial setup. Range is excellent. I was able to make phone calls from 1.5 blocks away from my house with good quality.

CONS:
Location of the Ethernet jack on the base station is poorly engineered. The jack is on the side while the RJ-11 jack is on the back. The blue activity light on the base station oscillates too much and feel that I may have a seizure if I look at it too long.
