The UTStarcom F1000 Wi-Fi telephone is a pocket-sized, wireless Internet phone that uses Vonage service anywhere in the world that has Internet access and a Wi-Fi access point.
A Wi-Fi telephone connects to the Internet through wireless network Wi-Fi access points using a technology known as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).
You can receive calls from Wi-Fi, Mobile, or land-line callers.
Before you start the installation of the UTStarcom F1000 Wi-Fi telephone, make sure you have the following:
The UTStarcom F1000 Wi-Fi telephone is 802.11b and 802.11g compliant.
The UTStarcom F1000 Wi-Fi telephone will connect to the following types of Wi-Fi access points:
Refer to the UTStarcom F1000 Wi-Fi telephone Quick Start Guide or User CD for connectivity procedures.
NOTE: The UTStarcom F1000 Wi-Fi telephone works best when located within a 100 unobstructed yard radius from a Wi-Fi access point.
When AUTOSCAN mode is enabled, the UTStarcom F1000 Wi-Fi telephone first searches for one of the four Wi-Fi access point profiles on the phone and connects to the first one active one.
If it does not find any of these profiles activated, it will look outside for an open Wi-Fi access point and connect to the one with the highest signal strength. If it does not see any open Wi-Fi access point, it will display the message, No AP available.
It will continue to go through this loop until it connects to an AP. This will drain the battery very quickly. Please be aware of this when enabling AUTOSCAN, one of the common mistakes is to leave the phone on with AUTOSCAN enabled when driving.
Note: If you only want to connect to the APs in your saved profile, disable AUTOSCAN. This will also conserve the battery usage.
You can use the UTStarcom F1000 Wi-Fi telephone while traveling abroad. However, you must be aware of the differences in power supplies. The travel power supply that is included with the UTStarcom F1000 Wi-Fi telephone supports 100-240V AC, 50-60Hz, and has a US-style plug.
If the country you are traveling to does not support a US-style plug, you will need to purchase the appropriate plug adapter (not a voltage converter) if the voltage requirements for that country fall within the 100-240V range.
For the UTStarcom F1000 Wi-Fi telephone to recognize an incoming number and display the caller's name, phone numbers must be saved in an 11 digit format, for example 1-732-555-1234. If the 1 is not entered, the phone will only display the incoming number.
If you do not want to recieve calls from a particular phone number, put it on your blacklist. The UTStarcomm F1000 prevents calls on your blacklist from ringing your phone. Instead, the call goes directly to your voicemail.
Vonage does not provide UTStarcom F1000 Wi-Fi telephone accessories. Spare batteries, charging stands, and other accessories are available from a number of VoIP supply sources, including www.voipsupply.com.
