To get it to work, you need to sign up for a SIP account with a VOIP provider, like Voip.ms, Voicepulse, Vitelity, or Callcentric.
I suggest updating the firmware as soon as you receive it, as there are frequent useful firmware updates.
To respond to some of the one star reviews:
Of course the device doesn't work with Vonage, it's not supposed to! Vonage doesn't use SIP!
Of course the device died when you plugged the wrong power adapter into it - it fried the circuit board. You could make that same comment about hundreds of devices.
UPDATE: While I still think this device is good, I now recommend purchasing a Linksys SPA-2102 instead, due to a new firmware update from Linksys. It's worth the extra $[...] or $[...] bucks for the ability to tweak DTMF detection.
Thank you for the positive comments! We appreciate your feedback and recommendation. We are glad to hear you are overall satisfied with your PAP2T IP Phone!

If you're still reading, you should be nevertheless aware that the configuration screens for these type of devices are obscure and take a bit of a learning curve. There is a full manual in searchable PDF which you will likely need to refer to, but when you do, it is very good.
Now, after all that, if you need a dual line or dual channel VOIP ATA (analog telephone adapter), let me heartily state that this is your product. I own one and love it, and have read many reports from other satisfied users. What is a channel? Well in the wonderful world of VOIP, a channel is an active call. Many providers, when you pay for an incoming phone number (aka DID, or Direct Inward Dialing number), give you two or more channels. What does this mean? If you have two phones hooked up to this unit, but are only paying for one DID, if you are on one line, the other will automatically ring if someone calls you. Conversely, if someone is actively calling on one channel, you can pick up the line on the other channel and make a call. I have not yet personally tried this but I have been assured that such things are possible.
Your VOIP provider should be able to help you get it configured correctly. Linksys (they bought out Sipura, who is the de-facto standard for VOIP ATA's) is very well supported by most VOIP providers.Read more ›
Don't believe me? Check for yourself, here's how:
Take the first six digits of the MAC address of your device, then google something like "mac address lookup", from the results find one that tells you the hardware vendor of a mac address. When I did this, the mac came back as "Kingjon Digital Technology Co.,Ltd" Obviously not Linksys.
The device was sold by Prestige Milano, and fulfilled by Amazon.
The package included a Cat 5e cord made by "CK-Link", and a no-name power adapter, unlike the genuine PAP2 I received from Linksys. The labels on the device just don't look right, the QC stickers are missing.
Mac's for playing with:
First six digits of Counterfeit PAP2: 0013EF
First six digits of REAL PAP2: 0018F8
Moral of the story, don't but from Prestige Milano.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We take counterfeit products very seriously here at Cisco, and I'm personally forwarding this to the Cisco Brand Protection Team for investigation. If you would please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I'd like to get some additional information regarding your purchase.

The adapter came with limited documentation. But it is quite easy to locate help online for PAPT2 configuration. It is quite easy to do once you get the configuration information from your SIP provider. I was done in about 30 minutes. But I have to warn you, configuring this adapter isnt for every one; but this isnt for the SIP experts either. If you can configure a software client on your laptop, you can get through this with the online articles (wont make it with the provided documentation - I guarantee you that).
The adapater also lets you configure rules that are applied to the dialled numbers. You can assign some fancy numbers to your contact, and have the adapter translate it to the right number. For e.g. you can configure it such that if you dial "FATHER" (i.e. 328437) the adapter actually dials your father's number.. pretty cool :)
Overall, I would recommend it to anyone. I dont have to pay anything for a in-US line (thanks to Google + Gizmo) and can have extremely cheap pre-paid international calls where I pay less than half of what I was paying on skype and 1800 calling cards.
It is still going strong. Had some trouble with DTMF tones, and fixed it by Selecting 'InBand' for Line -> Audio Configuration -> DTMF Tx Method (in Admin login, Advanced Settings). It works well now (with voip localphone - which is awesome btw).
Still doing great. No problems at all. No reboots, unless the power failed. Nearly non-stop for 4 years.
Thank you for the positive comments! Glad to hear you are satisfied with the PAP2T. If you have questions, feel free to visit the Small Business Support Community (http://www.cisco.com/go/smallbizsupport) and follow us on Twitter (@CiscoSBsupport). We are listening!
