Can I use the Snom softphone or am I confined to the x-lite?

#1
Hi

I'm a total technophobe when it comes to this kind of thing so apologies if this is a daft question...
I have installed the x-lite softphone bu to be honest I don't like it very much. I'm also thinking about buying Snom phones so it would be handy to try out their softphone before spending my hard earned cash!
Can I just download the Snom softphone or do I need to put lots of settings into it? If so where do I find those settings?

I haven't done anything with it yet as I don't want to kill it altogether!

Yes, you have to add your user account and password and you mustn't have the other softphone running at the same time.

But the snom softphone won't tell you anything about the real telephone - it works just the same as the X-Lite.

You can have as many numbers as you like.

If you want to be able to see the number that was called though, you need the free feature called Line Presentation that comes with our PBX.

You need one extension for each number you wish to see individually.

I believe so - just add your Voipfone number into the softphone's address book along with its name, tick the box next to the extension number marked 'Line Presentation' in the PBX in 'Your Account' and it should then show the name being called when it's called.
